U.S. election recommendations

-A A +A
By The Staff


This year the Congressional elections are very important as we are electing a new Senator and three new Congressmen – including one from our own Third District.

In the Third District, two newcomers and one long-time politician are seeking the post.

Ben Ray Lujan is the Democratic candidate, Dan East won the Republican nod and Carol Miller is running as an independent.

The Monitor is recommending voters go with Carol Miller.

The selection was not unanimous, but the majority of the editorial board supported her candidacy. The general feeling was that she was the only candidate with the necessary experience to perform for the district.

We have no real problem with the other candidates, save for their inexperience. Given the fact that we will have all new people in Washington – and that the issues we will be facing are huge – this is not a time for on-the-job training.

Miller is the only candidate running that has any kind of experience in the district, in the state, nationally and in Washington.

We face serious issues in Los Alamos and in the district and we need someone who can represent us now, not in a couple of years after gaining experience on the job.

Carol Miller is that person.
