UNM-LA Advisory Board candidates weigh in

-A A +A

Elections > Chairman running unopposed

By Tris DeRoma

This may get a little confusing.
There are four candidates running for two positions on the Los Alamos Advisory Board, the board that advises and guides the CEO of the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos campus.
Three candidates are running for Position 3. They are Michael Dirosa, Troy Hughes and James Robinson. Anyone from anywhere in Los Alamos can vote for one of them, since the board has no districts.
After that, voters can also go ahead and vote for Steven Boerigter, the incumbent and chairman of the UNM-LA Board, even though he is running unopposed.
At Wednesday night’s League of Women Voters, Los Alamos voters forum, the three candidates for Position 3 got their chance to interact with the public to explain why they would be the best candidate for the job as well as answer questions concerning certain issues surrounding UNM-LA.
Due to the rules of the forum however, Boerigter could not answer questions from the audience, since he had no challengers. However, he could give an opening and introductory statement, explain his viewpoints and perspective on certain issues, but nothing else.
As a result, most of the UNM-LA Advisory Board section of the forum was dedicated to the candidates running for Position 3.
