A woman’s right to choose, strengthening New Mexico’s economy, developing alternative energy and investing in public education were just some of the questions lobbed at candidates for the District 43 House seat during a forum Thursday night.
White Rock Baptist Church served as the backdrop for the forum, which was organized by the League of Women Voters of Los Alamos and was moderated by the league’s president, Barbara Calef.
The candidates for the 43rd District seat, Republican Jim Hall and Democratic challenger Stephanie Garcia Richard, however, seemed to handle the questions with ease and even seemed to somewhat agree on a few issues.
When one resident asked about how was the best way to update the Los Alamos National Laboratory’s mission, Hall said though New Mexico is “suffering from a deficit of senior leadership” in Washington at the moment, he had no doubt that with time, the lab will modernize its mission into more peaceful and scientific endeavors. “But its main mission will always be to safeguard America’s nuclear stockpile,” Hall said.
