Los Alamos County Council Chair Geoff Rodgers announced his candidacy for House District 43 earlier this week.
“We’ve had over six decades of unbroken single party control of the legislature. And I think it’s time to try some new ideas,” Rodgers told the Los Alamos Monitor.
Rodgers is currently serving his second term on council. He first served from 2001-2004 and was elected again in 2010. This is his second year as council chair.
Rodgers served five years in the U.S Army and eight in the U.S Army Reserves as a helicopter pilot. He was director of transportation for Los Alamos Public Schools for twelve years and was secretary/treasurer for the North Central Regional Transit District board of directors for two. The NCRTD is honoring him for his service this Friday.
Rodgers is one of two Los Alamos Republicans to throw a hat into the ring for House District 43 this week — former Republican county councilor Vincent Chiravalle has done likewise.
The seat is currently occupied by Democrat Stephanie Garica Richard, who defeated another Los Alamos Republican, Jim Hall, in 2012. Hall was appointed by Susana Martinez to the post.
Rodger’s calls himself “a pragmatic problem solver” who will apply lessons learned in local government at the statehouse if elected.
