“We are very proud of Sandoval County,” County Manager Wayne Johnson said. “We are the fastest-growing county in the state and we have hundreds of jobs available throughout our area in multiple industries and local government. What better way to celebrate our 120 years than to connect with our residents and provide job opportunities at the same time? Please join us. It’s a win-win combination: cake and career.”

Participating employers include: Sandoval County, City of Rio Rancho, Rio Rancho Public Schools, UNM Sandoval Regional Medical Center, Presbyterian Health Services, Turtle Mountain

“Come out, you can get a piece of cake and enjoy celebrating 120 years of Sandoval County,” County Commission Chair Dave Heil said. “There’s also a career fair that day. (Sandoval County Director of Marketing & Communications) Shawn Perry-Turner has done a lot of good work on putting this all together. We’re looking to make this a fun celebration recognizing Sandoval County being in existence since since 1903, and no I wasn’t there.”
