Changes occured for both county and school officials

By Carol A. Clark

Editor’s note: This is the first in a series of stories that highlight the changes that occurred in our community in 2009.

This year the county administrator, fire chief and superintendent of schools retired after years of service to the community.

A story appearing in the Oct. 18 edition of the Los Alamos Monitor reflected the esteem local, state and national officials held for retiring county administrator Max Baker. As stated in that story, Baker was one of those people who so positively affected the lives of people around him that they felt compelled to publicly thank him.

Both United States senators from New Mexico sent their appreciation and best wishes to Baker from their offices in Washington, D.C.

Sen. Jeff Bingaman said, “Max Baker is a trusted public servant who worked very hard on behalf of Los Alamos County. I hope he enjoys this next stage in his life.”

Meanwhile, Sen. Tom Udall thanked Baker for his hard work and dedicated service to Los Alamos County. “I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Max over the years and wish him health, happiness and continued success in his future endeavors,” Udall said.

Many other area leaders, colleagues and family members also expressed appreciation for Baker.
