Kiwanis sweep through local candidates

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

Two county council candidates, Sharon Stover and Mike Wismer (who said he will file today), and the county’s veteran state legislator, Jeannette Wallace concluded the Kiwanis Club series with aspirants for local offices. While voters went to the polls Tuesday, these candidates were not hanging on the day’s outcome.

Republican Sharon Stover’s test will arrive during the general election in November, when the five council candidates will be pared down to three. Planning to run as an Independent, Wismer was not on Tuesday’s primary ballot.

Republican Wallace, finishing her ninth term in the New Mexico House of Representatives, has no opponent in the fall.

“I’m so glad I don’t have an opponent,” Wallace said, “because I don’t like elections all that much.”

“I want to keep on keeping on,” Stover said, discussing why she wants to return to the council after a previous term from 1998-2002. “I want to do it again.”

Stover has been most active recently in the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and youth leadership initiatives and programs.

Among many current commitments in the community, she mentioned service on the YMCA board, the school foundation, the 60th anniversary celebration and the White Rock economic development plan.
