Protecting Rio Grande del Norte - Interior Secretary Visits Taos
On December 15th, 2012 VVF New Mexico Steering Committee Member Larry Sanchez, a County Commissioner from Taos County County, New Mexico met with Interior Secretary Ken Salazar at a meeting to discuss the future of lands known as the Rio Grande del Norte.
Secretary Salazar was in Taos on this day to meet with local community leaders to discuss permanent protection of these lands. Commissioner Sanchez spoke eloquently on behalf of VVF on protecting these lands for future generations as well as their value to the Veteran's community.
We wish to thank Commissioner Sanchez for his tireless advocacy on behalf of New Mexico's public lands his and support of VVF.
