Anybody can talk a good game but are they able to walk the walk?
During the League of Women Voters’ forum for Los Alamos County Council candidates Thursday night at Fuller Lodge, members of the public put the candidates to the test.
The forum revealed that the council candidates share similar views on many of the topics raised during the question and answer period.
Democrats Ken Johnson, Deborah Gill and Betty Ann Gunther as well as Republicans Geoffrey Rodgers, Ron Selvage, James Hall and Frances Berting are asking for voters to select them for council in November.
During the forum the group was asked a range of questions beginning with their thoughts on checks and balances in local government.
Hall said while he believes there needs to be more citizen control in large county projects, “(I) haven’t seen any great damage in doing things they way they have been done.”
Rodgers also said he felt the citizens need to be remembered and that he supports the community’s input such as voting on capital projects.
Gunther said one thing she has observed with the council is if people go to the meetings, and fill up the meeting room, she has never seen the council fail to respond.
