House candidates square off

-A A +A

Teacher driving for change challenges experienced incumbent

By Carol A. Clark

The general election is just 26 days away and the two candidates running in House District 43 met in front of Los Alamos audiences for the last time Tuesday.
Nine-time Republican incumbent Jeannette Wallace and Democratic newcomer Stephanie Richard participated in the League of Women Voter’s of Los Alamos and the American Association of University Women cosponsored forum at Fuller Lodge.
Questions from the audience ran the gamut from same-day voter registration to Medicaid.
“Medicaid is one of our biggest problems…the federal government is paying a 3-1 match but we need to look at a lot of issues under Medicaid,” Wallace said.
Wallace spoke against the controversial same-day voter registration issue saying that there are a multitude of opportunities for people to register from county fairs to grocery stores if they really want to vote.
Richard said that while she understands the concern for the possibility of voter fraud, she would support removing any barrier to a person’s right to vote.
