Of the three councilors whose terms end this year, Councilor Vincent Chiravalle is the only one seeking reelection.
Chiravalle’s main priorities are enacting a fiscally conservative budget, creating more high tech jobs, expanding retail sources, increasing revenues for public schools and creating more affordable housing.
Chiravalle moved to Los Alamos shortly after receiving a degree in aerospace engineering from Princeton University in 2003. He accepted a position as scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), where he works on engineering and physics related issues. In addition to serving on council, he is a lector at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church.
