Tribute to Senator Domenici at the Conference

September 18, 2017

Good Afternoon,

The opening day of the 2017 Domenici Conference was the day we lost our Senator. The following is a transcript of remarks shared by Chancellor Carruthers at the opening ceremony of the conference:

"It is with heavy heart that I tell you that Senator Pete Domenici passed away two hours ago. Forgive me, he was a very dear friend of mine and everybody else, but he passed away. He had surgery in Albuquerque and we thought he was recovering.

As I was facilitating a meeting earlier this morning, the word was passed to me that the Senator had passed away. We lost a great American, we lost a great New Mexican, we lost a great friend. Most of us here have learned from him, we've been mentored by him and everyone of us have been supported by him.

When we talk about legacy, everybody says a legacy is what lives after you. And I think the important thing is, 'How long is that legacy alive? How long do we remember that legacy?'

There are very few people that you can say that that legacy will last forever, and that's Senator Pete Domenici.

Would you join me in just a moment of silence for our great friend, who's now watching this discussion from above?"

Rest in peace, Senator Domenici. Your legacy will live forever.

Good Evening,

I just wanted to say, thank you so much for your donation to the Domenici Archives project at New Mexico State University. This is going to open up some new research possibilities for future policy makers and students here. So on behalf of students at NMSU, thank you so much for your support! 

Because of you, $12,872 dollars was raised and 179 boxes of Senator Domenici's Archives will be processed.

Good Morning,

First and foremost, thank you for supporting Senator Domenici's legacy of public policy and impact. We appreciate every donor who has contributed. We are 75% toward our goal! Your donation makes available our Senator's archives, which are hosted at the New Mexico State University Library in Branson Hall.

We need your continued support today. Please share the following  link:

As many of you know, the Domenici Conference happens later this Fall. However, we would like to help process as many of these archives prior to the conference as possible. Thank you again for your partnership as we endeavor to increase the quality of educational resources for future public policy makers in New Mexico.

Remember the number of married couples that came out of Senator Domenici's office and how he was very proud to be a Senate matchmaker?  He was always proud and happy when he attended the weddings! It is one of the many memorable and endearing things about Senator Domenici and the priceless experience of working in his office. 

Senator Domenici helped so many people during his career.  Please help preserve his work and legacy by contributing to the Domenici Archives today.
