Contested field set for House District 43 race

Politics > Garcia Richard will face either Rodgers or Chiravalle in the general election

By John Severance

The field is set for the House District 43 race as incumbent Stephanie Garcia Richard (D-Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Rio Arriba and Sandoval) and Republicans Geoff Rodgers, the Los Alamos County Council chair, and Vince Chiravalle, a former councilor, filed their paperwork in Santa Fe Tuesday.
Rodgers and Chiravalle will face off in the primary June 3. The winner of the primary will face Garcia Richard in the general election Nov. 4.
“I have worked tirelessly for the residents of our district and the outpouring of support shown from voters spanning the entire political spectrum, proves just that,” Garcia Richard said.
Garcia Richard was required to submit at least 60 registered Democratic voters’ names in support of her re-election campaign and far exceeded that number with over 350 Democrats — as well as numerous Republicans and independents.
Rodgers, meanwhile, said he entered the race for a number of reasons.
“I don’t accept that New Mexico has to be on the wrong end of just about every list that matters,” Rodgers said. “We are blessed with rich culture, history, natural resources and a work force that wants to go back to work. We need people in Santa Fe that are willing to break from the decades old failed philosophies and policies that got us here and chart a new course.”
