-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the second of a series of questions asked by the Monitor to the five candidates running for County Council. The candidates responses run each Sunday leading up to early and absentee voting, which begins Oct. 7. The election is Nov. 4.

Vincent P. Chiravalle, 34, is a Technical Staff Member in the Applied Physics Division (X) at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Chiravalle holds a Ph.D. in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering from Princeton University in Princeton, N.J., a Master’s Degree in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering from Princeton University, and a B.S.E., in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering also from Princeton University.

Chiravalle’s special interests include running, weightlifting and reading.

The Monitor asked all candidates the same question: Are you for or against the Trinity Site Project and why?

Chiravalle: I would like to see more retail choices for the citizens of Los Alamos County and the voters have already spoken in favor of proceeding with the development of the Trinity site, by approving Ordinance 529 for bonds to help finance the construction of the Airport Basin facilities and the clearing of the land at the Trinity site itself.
