  • Candidates pace themselves

    With the June 5 primary just weeks away, many of the candidates in local races are taking a restrained approach in terms of campaign spending.

    First up is the county council race and it seems that the candidates are pacing themselves since the primary will have no bearing in terms of who makes it onto the ballot for the general election in November.

    On the Republican side, Vince Chiravalle, who is seeking reelection, contributed $500 to his own campaign and spent $380 in bulk mailings in his first report. In his second report, Chiravalle reported $725 in contributions including $600 from Joseph Rinaldi of Carteret, N.J. and $100 from Michael Maier in Los Alamos.

    The Regional Coalition of LANL Communities made a trip to Taos last week and was met by various nuclear watchdog groups.

    The groups were apparently stoked by an editorial in the Taos News that portrayed the coalition as hardly a “benign organization offering neighboring towns and counties input into Los Alamos National Laboratory policies. In truth, the coalition was formed to employ a lobbying firm, paid for by coalition members, to milk the federal government for funding for LANL.”

    Some members of the coalition think the editorial was a little off base because for the coalition, it’s all about cleanup.
