Gibson Worked to Upgrade LA

-A A +A

Outgoing councilor encourages others to embrace public service

By Kirsten Laskey

Councilor Robert Gibson has worked for years to guide Los Alamos into the 21st century. After serving on council from 1997-2000, Gibson decided to serve another stint saying he thought those years would be pivotal for Los Alamos with so many changes looming on the horizon.
Los Alamos National Laboratory had a new form of management, the county was rebuilding many of its major facilities and the community was, and is, operating in the 20th century, unsure about moving into the 21st century, he said.
“My primary goal was to establish and begin implementing a community vision of Los Alamos as a community as important to the world and rewarding to its residents in future decades as it has been in the past,” Gibson said. “To do that, we must take more responsibility for our own future and rely less on the lab. Unfortunately, I’ve been unsuccessful in getting this council to even think about the fundamental elements of our long-term future.”
Despite some obstacles to achieve change, Gibson said there have been successes.
