In a written statement, County Councilor Robert Gibson announces he will not seek reelection.

“I ran for council this term to promote my dream that Los Alamos contribute as much to the world in the 21st century as it did in the 20th while remaining a great place to live. I had hoped to see us develop a strong, challenging community vision along those lines.

“At the same time, I wanted to see county government operations and infrastructure modernized to cost-effectively support that vision,” he said. “My inability to inspire similar strategic initiative and fiscal realism in my colleagues is discouraging. I’m not confident I have the energy to keep pushing another four years. And there are many others who can do this job at least as well as I can. So I will not be filing Tuesday for re-election. This is a great community to work for. I continue to appreciate the interest and involvement of so many of our citizens and look forward to working for all as a councilor for the next nine months and in other capacities thereafter.”

Four of the seven seats comprising the Los Alamos County Council are up for election this year. Councilors Nona Bowman and Michael Wheeler are term limiting out, appointed Councilor Ralph Phelps is running for election and Gibson’s seat is coming available.
