Incumbent, newcomer, and an unopposed candidate talk

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

This week, the Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos spoke with three candidates for county office, each campaigning under different circumstances.

One incumbent, Ken Milder, and one first-timer, Manuel Baca, are running for county council. Mary Pat Kraemer is unopposed for re-election as county clerk in the primary and the general election, although she couldn’t rule out a possibility that a write-in or independent campaign might arise.

They do have one thing in common. All three are Democrats.

During a lunch-hour talk at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church Tuesday, Milder said he was fully committed to economic development in White Rock, with a plan that is almost finished and scheduled to reach county council in June.

“I want to see it get done,” he said.

He said he had a lot of experience, and not just from his current term. He also served from 1985-1992. In between, he said he did a lot of research on economic development and concluded that there was a better way to do it.

“We used to think ‘more houses,’” Milder said. Now he believes it is better to create an environment that will enhance recruitment of retail and other businesses.
