Goodbye primary, hello general

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Well known for her drive to build consensus in committees, at town halls and other venues, Democrat Debbie Gill garnered more votes than any candidate on either side of the aisle in her bid for a seat on Los Alamos County Council.

“This makes me feel very confident,” Gill said this morning. “And it delights me because I hope it means people understand I’m a consensus builder and they embrace it. People in the county government are working very hard to be responsive and transparent in their actions…Building consensus is so important…I’ve seen it work in other places and I know it could work here…Los Alamos is such a great place and it deserves just to get there.”

Gill coordinates the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and runs a small business. Despite the fact that she received 1,056 votes, she said she was up at 3:45 a.m. today working on her campaign for November’s general election.  

“All of the Republican candidates for county council are responsible people who really care about Los Alamos; getting up early and working hard is what it’s going to take to be successful in November,” she said.

At 967 votes, Republican council candidate Jim Hall was the second highest in terms of ballots received.
