State auditor to investigate New Mexico organization’s spending habits



State auditor Wayne Johnson is performing an spending audit on Andrea Romero, the executive director of the Regional Coalition of LANL Communities, and the coalition as a whole.

The coalition is a collection of nine cities near Los Alamos National Labs and is not directly affiliated with the lab.

Romero’s contract ended in February.

Selection of a new executive director could come as early as Friday.

Correction: In a previous version of this article we stated that “the state auditor plans to investigate controversial spending habits at Los Alamos National Lab.” However, the state auditor is performing a spending audit on Andrea Romero who is the executive director of the Regional Coalition and the coalition as a whole, not Los Alamos National Labs.
