Truly, we need unity

-A A +A
By Robert A. Nunz

Dear Editor,

I’m sure we’re all happy it’s over – the incessant commercials and phone calls.

Here we can be thankful about no more complaints about stolen yard signs, or rude or vandalous behavior. No more partisan  letters in this column for awhile perhaps. No more self-congratulatory op-eds by our local political leaders.

Nice to sit back now, or...

A major tone of the national election spoken by our president-elect is “It’s about us.”

Here in Los Alamos, we, the voice of the people was quite important in our local council election.

I congratulate Sharon Stover for her strong victory. Just about everyone I know thinks Sharon cares about the whole community, young and old, regardless of party line, and is a great listener and a thoughtful decision maker.

I congratulate Mike Wismer in standing up for the voice of the people despite excoriation from his former party. The decision he appealed is long since done and we all must work together; but, I think he’ll assure the voices of all will be given a better ear next time around.

I congratulate Vincent Chiravalle. We were just kidding the other day that he could help Bob Gibson not to be “a voice crying in the wilderness” in casting sharp eyes on our county’s expenditures.
