Former Eddy County commissioner Glenn Collier of Artesia was recognized recently by Carlsbad Mayor Dale Janway for his contributions to the community of Carlsbad during his time on the Eddy County Commission. Janway issued a proclamation declaring Friday, Feb. 10, as Glenn Collier Day in Carlsbad in recognition of Collier’s 12 years as a commissioner, his service on the New Mexico Association of Counties’ Board of Directors, and his receipt of the NMAC’s prestigious Glass Flame Award. “We appreciate his support for area industry, including WIPP, potash, agriculture, tourism, and oil and gas, and his responsible stewardship of the county,” the proclamation reads. “Commissioner Collier has devoted a lifetime of service to all of Eddy County being a special friend to Carlsbad.”
