Los Alamos County Council Vice Chair Ron Selvage apologized today for an indiscretion he had with a woman while on an official visit to Moscow and Sarov last September.
“I did make a mistake on the Russian trip and it’s something that I regret and that I’m going to be paying for,” Selvage said this morning. “My wife and I are working through this and we would appreciate some privacy during this difficult time.”
The mistake Selvage is referring to is an inappropriate relationship he had with Nora Arbuckle, a member of the Sister Cities Initiative who works at Los Alamos High School in the Career Resource Center. Arbuckle accompanied the group of community leaders from Los Alamos on the official visit to Sarov, Russia last September.
Arbuckle, also married, could not be reached for comment.
Selvage’s wife, Kim Selvage, discussed her husband’s indiscretion with the Los Alamos Daily Post today saying, “Obviously, the marriage is over.”
The Los Alamos delegation included representatives of the local business community, the library system, the Los Alamos-Sarov Sister Cities Initiative Board and the Los Alamos Public Schools.
