Pete Domenici has received a key to the city in Carlsbad.
The mayor has done this in honor of the former senator’s 36 years of service to New Mexico.
The county and the city have done this at Riverside Country Club.
The mayor says Domenici has played instrumental roles in securing projects for the area like WIPP and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.
Following his retirement from the Senate six years ago, he has served as a senior fellow at the Birpartisan Policy Center in Washington.
