DENVER (AP) - Supporters of former U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar are welcoming him back to Colorado.
Sen. Michael Bennet is among the hosts of a reception in Denver Friday evening for Salazar, the former state attorney general and U.S. senator.
The Colorado native will start work next week as a partner for the international law firm WilmerHale, which is opening an office in Denver. He'll work on environmental, energy and tribal cases as well as offer strategic advice to clients.
On June 13, he'll be back in Washington to be honored by the Wilderness Society. He'll receive the group's annual Ansel Adams Award.
