Three seats open on school board

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

The November elections are over, but not for the Los Alamos school board, which has three seats up for grabs on Feb. 1.
The District 4 seat, held by Kevin Honnell; the District 5 seat held by Joan Ahlers; and the District 3 seat held by Jody Benson are up for election.
District 4 covers the Barranca Mesa, Western area, Quemazon and a good part of North Community, while District 5 covers the North Mesa and Ponderosa areas. Benson’s district covers the Eastern area, Aspen Elementary and most of the Los Alamos town site.
Each seat terms out at four years and Los Alamos Public Schools have a staggered election, which means that not all five seats come up for election at the same time.
“It just so happens that it’s the three positions in the Los Alamos town proper that are open for this election,” Honnell said. “The two White Rock elections will be up in two years.”
Current Board President Melanie McKinley and Board Member Thelma Hahn occupy the White Rock seats. School board members must live in the district for which they are running.
This is Honnell’s first time on the school board and said he’s planning to run for reelection because he feels educating the children of Los Alamos is the “noblest thing we do as a community.”
