Richardson taps Anaya for stimulus office

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

SANTA FE – Gov. Bill Richardson asked former Gov. Toney Anaya to lead a newly created Office of Recovery and Reinvestment. The new office will be charged with allocating at least $1.8 billion of federal stimulus money slated for New Mexico over the next 18 months.

Richardson introduced Anaya and a handpicked team of veteran state-government workers at a Capitol press conference Wednesday.

Richardson named Lt. Gov. Diane Denish to an advisory group led by his science advisory Tom Bowles, who was formerly the chief scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

That group, Richardson said would focus on accessing a share of some $80 billion that will be available through competitive grants.

Denish said she would champion the state’s rural communities, areas where jobs and funds are needed, but places that might not have the staff or expertise to participate in the process.

“This group will play a key role in helping us arrive at the best strategies to capture federal Recovery funds that are up for grabs to New Mexico – specifically – through competitive grants,” Richardson said. “Working together, we'll put our best minds on the job to compete successfully for these funds, and maximize opportunities for all New Mexicans.”
