David Hinkle, now the former president for the Gallup-McKinley Chamber of Commerce, recently announced his departure after nearly two years of service.

He has a new role as economic development program manager for the Northwest New Mexico Council of Governments.

He talks with the Sun about why he left and what his goals are for the upcoming new year.

Sun: Why did you decide to leave the Chamber of Commerce?

I love Chamber...
