  • Jindal says he's running

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana said Wednesday he was entering the 2016 presidential race and he began trying to distinguish himself in a field packed with better known rivals.
    It’s a long shot effort for an accomplished but overshadowed governor, and his prospects will depend in large measure on his continued courtship of evangelical voters. But several other contenders also are determined to win over that group.
    “My name is Bobby Jindal, and I am running for president of the United States of America,” he posted on his website. Short video clips showed Jindal and his wife, Supriya, talking to their three children about the campaign to come.
    “Mommy and daddy have been thinking and talking a lot about this, and we have decided we are going to be running for president,” he tells them.
    The 44-year-old two-term governor planned a kickoff rally later Wednesday.
    Aides discussed Jindal’s plans to focus on social conservatives, as he has done for months in extensive travels, and highlight his reputation as a policy-seasoned leader.

  • Johnson gets nod to join BPU

    On Tuesday, the Los Alamos County Council appointed Jeff Johnson to the Board of Public Utilities, following a new process for interviewing the candidates.
    In the past, council made their appointment decisions based on the candidates’ applications and a recommendation from the interviewing committee, as they do for other board appointments. The revised process was formulated by a newly formed subcommittee comprised of council and BPU members.
    The goal is to allow council to make a more informed decision about appointees to the board, which oversees a large portion if the county revenues and all aspects of the county’s utilities.
    Four citizens applied for the chance to replace Timothy Neal, whose term expires the end of this month.
    The other candidates were Kerry Harms, James Nealy Robinson and David Schiferl.
    Each candidate was allowed to make an opening statement about their qualifications and why they wished to serve.
    Johnson — who also had the recommendation of the BPU selection committee — is an engineer and project manager for Los Alamos National Laboratory who manages the development of equipment and facilities to be used in nuclear applications. He has resided in Los Alamos for 25 years.
