Wiviott: Time is right to serve in Congress

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

For 30 years, Don Wiviott has thought about serving in Congress and says the time is now right to do so.

“With my skills and experience … this is the highest and best use for my life,” he said during an editorial board meeting at the Monitor Thursday.

Wiviott is a Democrat running for Rep. Tom Udall’s seat in the 3rd Congressional District. He calls being new to politics an advantage.

“I’m a clean slate, beholden to no one,” he said.

Wiviott responded to opponents who criticize him for putting nearly $1 million of his own money into his campaign.

“I’ve been saving for 30 years so I could do this,” he said. “The things I believe in are more important than having that money in the bank.”

He also mentioned that 65 percent of the individual contributions he is receiving from supporters amount to $200 or less.

For more than a decade, Wiviott has committed himself to green building and green living. His signature development, The Lofts in Santa Fe, features a number of innovative green building techniques to reduce his company’s carbon footprint.
