The Monitor will continue its tradition of recommendations in election races, this year making some suggestions for the primary – in which early voting has already begun.
The Monitor editorial board was not unanimous in its recommendations, and that will be noted when pertinent. And we will not comment on uncontested races.
In the primary races for Los Alamos County Council, it should be noted that all candidates will advance to the general election, as there are three seats open and two candidates from each party. After the primary, other candidates may file as independents so that number could swell. For now, the Monitor will hold its endorsement.
In the contested races left, there is district attorney and the Public Regulation Commission seat.
In both these races the same situation applies, the winner of the Democratic primary wins the seat as there is no Republican candidates.
In the PRC race, a divided editorial board looked at the candidates, and had favorable things to say about Bruce Throne and Joseph Maestas.
But Maestas’ better knowledge of northern New Mexico, his superior performance as mayor of Espaola and his general knowledge of this part of the state led us to recommend him.
