Mary McInerny returns to county's top legal post

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Bright and early Monday morning County Attorney Mary McInerny was back at the post she vacated some seven years ago when the Los Alamos County Council appointed her county administrator. McInerny replaces Peter Dwyer who served as top attorney between 2005-2007.“I really enjoyed working with the county and I look forward to going back,” McInerny said during an interview Saturday evening. “Many people at the county have remained my friends, they’ve been supportive of me and happy to have me come back. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”McInerny described Los Alamos County as having unusual issues not often found in other communities. “The relationship with the federal government is at times quite complicated,” she said. “And it has all of the municipality type questions but because it’s incorporated and authorized to adopt the home rule form of government, it’s a unique and challenging place to work from a professional level. It’s certainly never boring.”When McInerny first went to work at the county in February 1995, current County Administrator Max Baker was the finance director and he later moved up to administrative services. County Administrator Joe King left the end of December following the Cerro Grande Fire in 2000.
