Four of the five original candidates running for the UNM-LA Advisory Board shared their thoughts on the branch’s future during the League of Women Voters forum Thursday night at UNM-LA.
Constituents were given the opportunity to ask questions and got an idea of the changes each hopeful wanted to make if elected.
The question and answer session began with the candidates introducing themselves. Michael D. Di Rosa is running for position three on the advisory board. He started out by saying that the Los Alamos motto, “Where discoveries are made,” could be used for UNM-LA if it was changed a bit to read, “where transitions are made.”
“Lives are changed and enriched. It’s quite an asset to have that in Los Alamos,” Di Rosa said.
Stephen Boerigter, also running for position three said that drawing UNM-LA and Los Alamos together is a critical key part of creating active and vibrant citizenship.
“Having a branch here is a really amazing thing for us,” said Ralph Phelps, who’s running for position four. “The challenge is to make sure we keep it.”
Phelps’ opponent, Linda Hull said she’s always been supportive of higher education and lifelong learning.
