County council

This is an important election year in Los Alamos. There are many important projects ahead of us and who we elect to the county council will help shape the future of our county for many years to come.

There are five candidates seeking three seats on the council in open voting: Manual Baca, Vincent Chiravalle, Ken Milder, Sharon Stover and Mike Wismer are all seeking the seats now held by Jim Hall (who chose not to run), Fran Berting (term limited) and the incumbent Milder, seeking a second term.

In mixed voting – reflective of feelings in the community – only one candidate won unanimous approval of the Monitor’s election board: Sharon Stover.

Stover has long been active in the community. She has played key roles in working with our youth, in working with the state and in working for our county. She has a long history of service here and is worthy of our vote.

The next highest vote getter was Mike Wismer. Wismer had a bit of a rough time his last go-round on council but he has proven that he is interested in serving the community.

His involvement in civic groups, as well as serving on the UNM-LA advisory board, has proven that.
