The Las Vegas Optic has a new advertising manager. Vince Chavez’s first day on the job was Tuesday.
Chavez, 52, is in the process of moving to San Miguel County from his home near Taos. He and his wife, Susan Maggie Chavez, are empty nesters who have raised five sons. They also have two granddaughters.
Chavez grew up in the Midwest, but most of his adult life was spent in New Mexico and Colorado. He’s lived in Mesilla, Las Cruces and Taos in New Mexico. “My real passion is the West and the diversified culture we have out here,” he said.
