The Los Alamos County Council chose one of their own as the nominee to replace late Rep. Jeannette Wallace in a special session Tuesday.
The council voted 5-0 to submit Jim Hall as the county's nominee to replace the longtime state representative who died in April.
Each of the three counties in District 43--Los Alamos, Santa Fe and Sandoval--will submit a nominee for consideration by Gov. Susana Martinez who can choose from the pool of nominees or the governor could reach out beyond that pool of nominees to make the appointment.
