  • LWVNM urges candidates to be tough on climate change

    On Thursday, the League of Women Voters of New Mexico (LWVNM), a nonpartisan political membership organization, presented more than 100 letters to the two gubernatorial candidates, Diane Denish and Susana Martinez, urging them to assume strong leadership to address the growing threat from climate change.  

  • Legislators must make hard votes

    I’m becoming disturbed by disingenuous rhetoric from Rep. Jeannette Wallace’s campaign. Wallace has been campaigning for re-election by complaining about the budget increases over the past eight years. What Wallace isn’t telling people is that she has voted for almost all those budget increases.

  • Publisher is nothing more than common carpetbagger

    I am writing to register my utter disgust at Monitor Publisher Keven Todd’s unconscionable comparison of a local citizen to Adolf Hitler.  
    In his Oct. 24 blog commentary, “County council must be from France,” publisher Todd likens Los Alamos resident Richard Hannemann to the murderous “Fuhrer standing triumphant at the table” for Hanneman’s successful petition giving citizens an opportunity to vote on a replacement County Municipal Building.

  • Everyone’s got a belly button

  • In the off chance that you were wondering...

    I had an interesting inquiry recently from a local citizen wanting to understand the relationship between the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  
    The Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce is an entirely distinct and independent entity from either the state or national Chamber of Commerce.

  • Using credibility criterion at polls

    This is to recommend a litmus test for the credibility of political candidates.

  • Heather Wilson encourages vote

    I’ve known Jeannette Wallace for almost 20 years.   Los Alamos and its environs are fortunate to have her as a state representative and I encourage your readers to vote for her again this year.
    Before I served in the Congress, I was a cabinet secretary in state government. Jeannette served on one of the committees where I regularly had to appear to explain our budget and programs and I got to know her.  

  • Support for Richard and the Los Alamos Firefighter’s Union

    I follow politics from the safety of my home. On occasion I will send a few dollars to a chosen candidate and always vote. Not much more than that.
    This year is different!
    Disturbing trends at the national level have me very concerned for the direction our democracy is taking. Getting involved in the footwork of politics has not been my way.
    This election is different!

  • Wallace is part of us

    Jeannette Wallace has been part of Los Alamos and this region for half a century. She raised her family here and has volunteered her time and energy to civic activities for decades. She served three terms on our county council.

  • Correction/Clarification

    The Monitor has learned that there were some factual inaccuracies in a letter to the editor that was published in the Oct. 21 edition under the headline: Judicial candidate’s judgment called into question.
    The letter from Amy Storey stated: “Additionally his (Gary Ahlers) large election signs have two problems. They do not indicate on the sign who paid for it, as is required. And according to the Sign Permit Application, political signs may be no larger than two square feet.”
