An Interview with Lorraine Ruggles, State of NM Economic Development Department
14 Nov 2022
Recently 4CED sat down with Lorraine Ruggles of the State of New Mexico Economic Development Department (NM EDD) and member of the Community Business and Rural Development Team. She has responsibility for serving San Juan County and Northwest New Mexico. Lorraine and the NM EDD are great resource partners to 4CED and area businesses.
1. Tell us about the role of the Community Business and Rural Development Team in the NM EDD?
The Community Business and Rural Development Team is made up of Regional Representatives (Reps) who serve as NM EDDs “boots on the ground” in their respective multi-County regions. Regional Reps like myself are the NM EDD’s “Ambassadors.”
