SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A California man and former Energy Department official has been named deputy cabinet secretary of New Mexico's arts agency.
The Cultural Affairs Department said Michael Scott Delello will assume his duties on Sept. 4. He worked in the Energy Department during the administration of former President George H.W. Bush, including as a congressional liaison on clean air issues and the national laboratories.
He also served as director of the Washington, D.C. office of the Electric Power Research Institute.
The agency said Delello most recently lived in California as he started a real estate business and pursued an interest in screenwriting. He earned a bachelor's degree in political science from Louisiana State University.
The Cultural Affairs Department administers New Mexico's network of museums and historical monuments.
