The pace was swift and the atmosphere cordial at the candidate forum co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters and the American Association of University Women Wednesday evening.
Community members filled the chairs and lined the walls of Fuller Lodge to hear the five candidates vying for three county council seats express their positions on a multitude of issues during the two-hour event.
“With three minutes and a microphone in my hand I’m used to a cloudy night club and not used to seeing people sober,” said Democrat Manuel Baca. He’s running to represent everyone, he said, regardless of age, ethnicity, or social status.
Republican Sharon Stover briefed the audience on her background growing up in her family’s restaurant in Pojaque, working for the county, serving on county council prior to the Cerro Grande Fire and co-founding community organizations. “Since leaving the council to spend time with my family, I’ve not quit accomplishing for the community I’ve grown to love,” she said.
Republican Vincent Chiravalle moved to Los Alamos in 2003. He is treasurer of the local Republican Party and president of his homeowners association. “Los Alamos is a special place and I want to keep it that way,” he said.
