New county councilors will be sworn in Friday.
But those new councilors already got a taste of what their new jobs are going to be like as they attended a “boot camp,” earlier this month.
The boot camp provides elected officials with intensive training facilitated by NM EDGE (Education Designed to Generate Excellence in the Public Sector), which is a collaborative program developed by New Mexico State University’s Cooperative Extension Service in conjunction with NMAC and other state organizations.
“It was like drinking out of a fire hydrant,” Councilor Rick Reiss said. “There’s nothing like covering a whole lot of territory in three short days.
“What I was impressed with was that the NMAC has a very well-prepared program to assist us in getting ready to be better councilors. And the topics that they covered were varied and intentional to get us up the curb.”
NMAC paid the registration for all newly elected officials to attend, which included Los Alamos County’s three new councilors. The county council approved funds for Reiss to attend, as well. Reiss was appointed to fill a council vacancy in September.
