LANL Government Affairs Representative David Trujillo
The Government Affairs and Protocol office has named northern New Mexico native David Trujillo as the new head of state and local government affairs for Los Alamos National Laboratory.
“I am excited about this new opportunity and I look forward to further strengthening the Laboratory’s relationship with all of our state and local government officials,” Trujillo said.

In his new role, Trujillo will support Laboratory leadership by providing a comprehensive view of Lab activities, plans, and capabilities to all levels of government.
The Lab, in coordination with the Department of Energy and the National Nuclear Security Agency, builds and maintains relationships with neighboring communities and regional pueblos. The Lab works with communities specifically in the areas of environmental stewardship, economic development, education and emergency preparedness.
David Trujillo spent much of his career serving the Northern New Mexico community. His work with leaders, policy makers and the public has allowed him to effectively launch unprecedented initiatives benefiting several regional communities. Trujillo graduated from Española Valley High School, attended the University of New Mexico and Northern New Mexico College. His background ranges from computer science to social work.
