Finding the correlations between Sarov, LA

by Los Alamos Monitor on November 13th, 2013

When Los Alamos County Administrator Harry Burgess was asked to contrast our governance with that of Sister City, Sarov, Russia, he replied, “Largely, what struck me were the similarities.”
According to Los Alamos Sarov Sister Cities Initiative (LASSCI) board member Paul White, the recurring theme for the delegation was, “The more we interact, the more similarities we find.”
The delegation found similarities in the forms of government, in the respect for history, in commercial enterprise and in daily activities, although unique experiences also stood out.
“Probably the more lasting impression is consistent with the purpose of the trip, in that we interacted with people, and made friends,” Burgess said.  “I think its one person at a time that we’re introduced to each other.
