Democratic senator Ken Salazar of Colorado has been nominated by President-Elect Obama to be his secretary of the Interior.

Some biographical information:

Age: 53

Home: Denver and Los Rincones, family ranch near Manassa

Family: Wife, Hope; two daughters, Andrea and Melinda; granddaughter, Mireya

Education: Bachelor’s degree in political science, Colorado College, 1977; juris doctorate, University of Michigan, 1981.

Career: U.S. Senate, 2005 to present; Colorado attorney general, 1999-2004; lawyer in private practice, 1994-98; executive director, Colorado Department of Natural Resources, 1990-94; chief legal counsel, Gov. Roy Romer, 1986-90; lawyer in private practice, 1981-86.

Senate committees: Finance; Agriculture; Energy and Natural Resources; Select Committee on Ethics; and Special Committee on Aging

The NYT fleshes Mr. Salazar’s biography out somewhat. NYT has a firewall wanting registration, but you can get at the article by googling “the new team ken salazar frosch”. The story date is 12/17/08.

The Interior Department is rampant with dysfunction, corruption and mismanagement, not to speak of its anti-science, anti-environmental bent under Bush.
