What I did on my summer vacation

-A A +A

The signs are clear for all to see. Our kids are back in school, the evenings are beginning to cool down and my husband has already taken out his ski boots to make sure they still fit. I think it is safe to say that summer is over. As a teacher I usually start the school year by asking my students to write a report on what they did during their summer vacation. Well, turnaround is fair play so I think it is only right for me to report to you with some of the details of what I’ve been up to.
To be completely frank with you, this summer has been busy. I have been dealing with fire in the Jemez mountains, participating in numerous legislative interim committees, several issues related to Los Alamos National Laboratory and assigned to a special jobs council tasked with developing policy strategies to spur economic growth and increased employment to meet our projected population needs. During all of this I have also been trying to help residents from throughout the district with issues as they arise.
I’ve learned a lot during the summer and there are several topics I want to share with you. Space is limited here so today I am going to focus on issues related to LANL and in a future column I will bring up other pertinent topics.
