Our tribal communities are saddened by the news of Governor Bill Richardson's passing -- my phone has been ringing non-stop today about it. He remains deeply respected for his service and collaborative approach to our particular needs in the seat of Indian Country.On a more personal level, he was a champion and intellectual inspiration for the launch of this company.I am ever grateful for the compassion, thought leadership, and confidence he placed in me during his successful governorship of New Mexico, and it was one of my highest honors collaborating with him on behalf of our Indian tribes, nations, and pueblos.I'll never forget laying on a bed in the Hospital ER, and the nurse bringing a phone to my bedside (mumbling in disbelief that the Governor of our state was calling for me), holding it next to my ear, and that distinctive voice comforting me and -- in Bill's true fashion -- telling me to hurry up and get better because we've "got a lot to do," while offering anything I should need during recovery would be taken care of, no matter what.Godspeed, old friend. I will miss our conversations.#BillRichardson #newmexico #newmexicotrue #nativeamerican #indiantribes #santafe Indian Country Today New Mexico True ... See MoreSee Less
