It was a great pleasure to see Tony Fox insist that the Council recognize that voting against the rec bond is not identical with voting against the rec projects. One may be fiscally conservative and still be in favor of some quality of life improvements and infrastructure development.

And while Dr. Shin is indeed correct that quantification is not precise, it is certainly clear that everyone who voted for the bond is also in favor of the projects.

Letter To The Editor: Three Ideas, Two Concerns On Rec Projects

on August 8, 2017 - 4:23pm
By LISA BRENNER
Los Alamos

Dear County Councilors,

 

With the upcoming discussion tonight of the continued want for recreational projects in Los Alamos I have three suggestions:
 
1)  Any LANL contract could incorporate an item from the bidder toward community development. LANL is just as interested in attracting the best and the brightest and, if it's true that adding recreational facilities will accomplish this, then it's appropriate for them to have some skin in the game.  It is not a "punishment" as I've heard a Councilor say, but an honor and smart business.
 
2)  Some thought

Letter To The Editor: About That Rec Bond Issue

Letter To The Editor: Election Results Matter

on August 8, 2017 - 8:28am
By KHALIL SPENCER
Los Alamos
 
I'm a little surprised that Megan Fox thinks the 47 percent to 53 percent vote against the Rec. bond was not really a defeat (link). Six percentage points matter. To put it in perspective, Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in the NM popular vote 48 percent to 40 percent. By Ms. Fox's logic, it would be "a little bit of a stretch" to say that Ms. Clinton won NM's electoral votes.
 
As far as the Rec Bond, it was defeated, period. What that means is no bond issue for these projects, a narrow question.
