ESPA'OLA – The Valles Caldera Trust fielded a skeleton crew of board members for Thursday’s meeting at Northern New Mexico College, the minimum five members needed for a quorum.
The Trust is the governing board of the Valles Caldera National Preserve, an 89,000 acre piece of public land in the Jemez Mountains, twenty miles west of Los Alamos, where roundup is beginning for a herd of 1960 yearlings who have summered there this year.
Secretary of the Trust Stephen Henry said the current acting executive director, Lucia M. Sandoval Turner was said to have a badly sprained ankle, and so she was also unable to attend.
Jim Gosz, UNM biology professor and forestry representative to the board was in Idaho on business and Raymond Loretto, former governor of Jemez Pueblo was called to veterinary duty at the State Fair in Albuquerque. With Chairman Bill Kelleher in Washington attending a function for retiring Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M., and Vice Chair Ed Tinsley, campaigning for the 2nd District Congressional seat in Southern New Mexico, it fell to Henry, as acting chair to announce the results of the board election.
The new officers will be the same as the old officers, by unanimous decision, he said.
