The League of Women Voters invites the entire community to attend their Lunch with a Leader event 11:45 a.m. June 17 at the Mesa Public Library. Featured speakers will be Tarin Nix and Ellen Morris Bond who will be discussing the “living wage” and how that might be implemented in Los Alamos.
Nix has a master’s degree in social work from the University of Texas and has spent the last eight years working to advance progressive issues and candidate campaigns throughout the country. In 2012, she moved to Los Alamos to run Representative Stephanie Garcia Richard’s campaign.
Recently Nix ran the successful campaign to extend the Santa Fe Living Wage to Santa Fe County.
Bond graduated from the University of New Mexico with a degree in English and then earned a master’s degree in community development from University of California-Davis.
Bond became interested in the nonprofit service world while working as a Vista Volunteer from 1978-1981. Since 2001, she has been executive director of Self Help, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting those in need in northern New Mexico. She has broad experience in casework, advocacy, case management, resource development and extensive experience in receiving and managing public and private funding.
