While the country elected a majority of Democrats to Congress and to the White House Tuesday night, Los Alamos chose mainly Republicans and an independent to serve locally.
County council candidates Sharon Stover and Vincent Chiravalle, both Republicans, and independent Michael Wismer, won over Democrats Ken Milder, an incumbent, and newcomer Manuel Baca, according to unofficial results posted by the Office of the County Clerk.
“I had tremendous community support and I appreciate everyone’s participation,” said Stover, who came in first with 6,306 votes (24.49 percent). “I’m really looking forward to working with the new council and doing the work of the people.”
Stover praised her fellow candidates and thanked them for running.
Wismer came in second with 5,478 votes (21.28 percent).
“I’m humbled and pleased by the result,” Wismer said. “We have our work cut out for us on council and I want to congratulate Sharon and Vincent – I look forward to working with them and the other councilors to help move our community forward.”
Chiravalle, new to politics and relatively new to Los Alamos received 5,384 votes (20.9 percent).
