COMMISSIONER KAREN G. PEREZ TO RECEIVE LULAC HISPANIC IMAGE AWARD

Doña Ana County Commission Chairwoman Karen G. Perez, who represents Doña Ana County’s third commission district, has been selected to receive the Public Service Award at the Second Annual Hispanic Image Awards hosted by the Las Cruces Council of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC).

Perez was notified of the award in late March by local LULAC President Phillip M. Archuleta. The awards banquet will be held April 21, 2007, in Las Cruces. More than 300 area residents are expected to attend.

“I am honored to receive this award,” Perez said, “and I’ll continue to do my best to live up to the high ideals of public service that LULAC supports in New Mexico and across the United States.”
