Pueblo, County share economic development interests

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Partnerships work best when all the parties involved share common interests. This holds true for neighbors, such as Los Alamos County and San Ildefonso Pueblo, especially when economic development is involved.

Late last week, the county council met with San Ildefonso Pueblo leaders in a joint council meeting at Fuller Lodge to discuss common interests.

The meeting was attended by all seven councilors, as well as the following pueblo leaders: Governor Leon T. Roybal, First Lt. Gov. Paul Rainbird, Second Lt. Gov. Terrence K. Garcia, Head Sheriff Bryan Montoya, Assistant Sheriff Garrett Pino, Head Fiscale Laurence Peña, Assistant Fiscale Paul Torres, Assistant Fiscale Thomas Gonzales, Head War Captain Gary Roybal and Second Assistant War Captain Marvin Martinez.

The meeting began and ended with an invocation and closing spoken in Tewa, by Roybal. Council Chair Michael Wheeler started off by saying that the county and the pueblo have had some difficulty in negotiating during the past six years.

“It’s about time we get together on a more regular basis,” he said.
