Lab: Longtime employee is former pueblo governor

Earl Salazar is Los Alamos National Laboratory’s new tribal liaison in the Government Affairs Office.
Previously a budget analyst for LANL’s Chief Financial Officer Division, Salazar began working in his new capacity on Monday.
Salazar succeeds Elmer Torres, who retired after 41 years of service, the last decade of which he was involved with LANL’s tribal affairs efforts.
“Earl brings to his new position broad and deep tribal government experience with the Native American community of New Mexico and significant business and finance expertise from more than two decades working in the office of the LANL Chief Financial Officer,” said Government Affairs Office Director Patrick Woehrle.
Salazar was governor of Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo (formerly San Juan Pueblo) during 2007-8. The Government Affairs Office is part of the Communications and Government Affairs Division.
