This was taken in Secretary Ken Salazar's office at the Department of the Interior. The young man on the right is Ray Rivera of New Mexico who was appointed by Salazar as head of inter governmental affairs for DOI. He has a big job ahead of him.
Ray was an intern for me when I was Mayor. He was a very hard worker. I knew then he would go on to bigger things. He ran the Obama campaign in Colorado and did an incredible job. This guy could come back to NM and run for high office some day. He is smart and capable. I will send him his first donation.
