  • Everyone’s got a belly button

  • Congressional race tightens

    Could there be a huge upset in the 3rd Congressional District this year? The little bit of polling that has been done makes the race appear to be one of the closest of the state’s major contests.
    The Albuquerque Journal has polled the races for governor and the 1st and 2nd congressional districts twice already this fall but has omitted polling the 3rd Congressional District, represented by Democrat Rep. Ben Ray Lujan.

  • 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.

  • Reforming state government

    Asked last week who she supported for governor, a small businesswoman in Eagle Nest responded, “I hate them both! Get off the TV and let me watch my shows!”
    By now, more than a few people feel that way.
    We don’t care where Susana Martinez grew up. We don’t care about Diane Denish’s Christmas cards. Be assured that Martinez can’t give our water to Texas, even if she wanted to, and that the conflict-of-interest story about Denish’s husband is fiction.

  • 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.
