County > Councilor believes his LANL connection can be an asset to RCLC

By Arin McKenna

One of Councilor Steve Girrens’ campaign platforms was to support “the positive momentum promoting regional partnerships and collaboration.”

“The big picture is, you’re always stronger if you can speak as a community. Our voice is more impactful when it’s in a collaboration coalition,” Girrens said. “And if you want to be a strong regional neighbor, that’s part of it. I think it’s on the county to lead that or support that as much as we can. Isn’t support LANL number one in our economic vitality plan?”

As one of three councilors working for the lab, Girrens felt that one place he could be most effective in building those partnerships was with the Regional Coalition for Los Alamos National Laboratory Communities. He volunteered to be Councilor Frances Berting’s alternate as liaison to the coalition.

“I thought I was in a good position to be able to understand the acronyms and understand the talk, because the talk is a little different,” Girrens said. “And just maybe be a more understanding representative.”

Girrens feels the coalition is an important asset on several fronts.
