Veronica Rodriguez spent more than a decade working for New Mexico’s beloved Sen. Pete Domenici. He retires Dec. 31 and as with the rest of his longtime staff, she had to seek new employment. Rodriguez began working at Los Alamos National Bank in October.
During an interview in her new office, Rodriguez reminisced about her years with Domenici and her life today.
“Every action, every decision he made was always motivated by what was best for New Mexico and its citizens,” she said of Domenici and his 36 years in the U.S. Senate. “He is such an amazing figure. In my mind he is one of the hardest working men in Washington.”
Rodriguez lives in Los Alamos. She spent nearly two years in the Republican senator’s Washington, D.C. office and the remainder of her time in his Santa Fe office.
“I admire the senator and Mrs. Domenici so much for all their years of public service, for all the work they’ve done, particularly regarding mental health,” Rodriguez said. “He’s a true visionary regarding science and the importance of science and the ability of science to address the numerous issues facing us today, such as national security, energy security, climate change, non-proliferation and health issues. It was truly an honor to assist him in his work for 10-and-a-half years.”
