Muni building petition falls short

-A A +A

Richard Hannemann is confident in getting required signatures

By Kirsten Laskey

His petition may be short by nine signatures, but Los Alamos resident Richard Hanneman is undeterred in his mission to replicate the original municipal building. Hanneman told to the Monitor Tuesday morning he feels confident nine signatures can be collected within the 10-day grace period the county allows for petitioners.
During tonight’s county council meeting, Hanneman predicts that the County Clerk will report that the petition does not have the required 1,668 signatures needed and council will deem the petition insufficient. From that point, Hanneman said there would be a 10-day period where he will be allowed to collect the needed signatures.
When the petition is returned then. Gloria Maestas, election manager, said, the petition will be certified as either sufficient or insufficient and the rest is up to council to decide.
Hanneman explained the petition has collected 1,920 signatures, but 1,659 were accepted. The remaining 261 were rejected either because the signers were not registered to vote, moved to a different part of the county and did not change their voter registration address or did not fill out their voter form properly.
These, he said, are easy fixes.
