Forum highlights congressional candidates

-A A +A

With 40 days remaining until the Nov. 4 election, the urgency to decide for whom to vote intensifies.

In an effort to afford the community a chance to assess their congressional candidates, the League of Women Voters and the American Association of University Women cosponsored a forum Tuesday evening.

Answers to 20 questions were heard by some 65 people during the two-hour event at Fuller Lodge.

KRSN aired the forum live and PAC 8 recorded it to rebroadcast until election day.

Republican Dan East, a small-business owner, Independent Carol Miller, a public health advocate, and Democrat Ben Ray Lujan, a public regulation commissioner, are vying for the Third Congressional District seat currently held by Democrat Tom Udall, who is running for the U.S. Senate.

In private interviews just before the forum began, each candidate described what they want Los Alamos voters to know most about them.

“I’m not a career politician,” East said. “I’m here to represent the people of this district, the state and the nation and bring their voice back to the halls of Congress.”

Miller wants Los Alamos to know she believes in science and that she listens before acting.
