Outgoing Councilors Celebrated

-A A +A

Los Alamos privileged to be served by four elected officials, chair says

By Kirsten Laskey

It’s been a significant year for Los Alamos County Council. Councilors made big decisions on everything from moving ahead with a prospective developer for the Trinity Redevelopment Site to firing County Administrator Tony Mortillaro.
The year even ended with a bang — not only did councilors approve a contract for the municipal building design-build at their final meeting but they also said goodbye to four of its members.
 “This has been a challenging year for council,” outgoing councilor Michael Wheeler said.
Despite tough decisions on controversial issues, Council Chair Mike Wismer said, “I believe the county of Los Alamos is privileged … to have Nona Bowman, Robert Gibson, Mike Wheeler and Ralph Phelps serve them.”
In a show of appreciation, each of the outgoing councilors received a Nambé plaque and Chief Wayne Torpy gave them special challenge coins in recognition of the council’s support of the Los Alamos Police Department.
He explained the coins are given to police officers to carry while on duty as a reminder to return home safely.
The outgoing councilors also received a few personal, informal gifts.
As a result of her years as a teacher, Bowman received rulers and a Steno notebook.
