Whenever a mistake or a miscalculation occurs, there is always an opportunity to learn from it. The University of New Mexico- Los Alamos Advisory Board is determined to pay attention to the lessons gained from this year’s failed mil levy election.
During its regular meeting Monday night, the board agreed to take initial steps to pursue another mil levy question. Only this time, the board is determined to do it right.
Board member Nelson Hoffman encouraged the board to go after another mil levy.
Board chairwoman Marie Chiravalle said she would only give her support to a new mil levy question, if the campaign for it was done correctly.
She argued that a leader needs to be identified for the mil levy campaign, a steering committee needs to be formed and the college needs to gain some focus in its rally for a mil levy.
“You can’t run this campaign without that,” Chiravalle said.
She further recommended that a presentation be created that is polished and concise and fundraising be held to support the campaign.
Additionally, Chiravalle said she would like to see a publicity committee formed to create ideas, flyers, advertising, mailings and a slogan.
There needs to be a buy-in from the faculty and students.
