Candidate cautions on county spending

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

Two of the three speakers scheduled for a Kiwanis Club lunch Tuesday were unable to attend, and that meant more time for county council candidate Vincent P. Chiravalle to introduce himself.

Chiravalle, a Republican and a Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University, is making his first bid for county office.

He emphasized campaign issues organized around the theme of Los Alamos as “a special place” and controlled spending.

The special features he wants to build on and preserve include “the high-powered national laboratory” where important contributions to science and national security are made, the views and natural amenities of the surrounding area, and the small town atmosphere where families can feel safe.

Chiravalle said he has “the energy, the ideas and the determination” for the job.

Also part of his campaign is a commitment to “look critically at public spending,” and to make “frugal investments that help improve our economy.”

Recognizing that the county is enjoying a period of additional revenues, he said, spending has to be prioritized.

“We shouldn’t try to do it all at once,” he said. “I want to hold the line on capital spending.”
