Letter to the Editor: Experience Isn't Everything

on November 1, 2012 - 4:19pm
By Karyl Ann Armbruster
Los Alamos

Several ads list Jim Hall's experiences. It wrongly assumes that a man 31 years older than his opponent would be a better qualified legislator.

In fact, the New Mexico Legislature was set up as a citizen's legislature. The intent was for people from all walks of life and occupations to represent our diverse population.

Stephanie Garcia Richard is intelligent, already respected in the legislature, endorsed by both U.S. senators, several current legislators and came within 190 votes of unseating 20-year incumbent Jeannette Wallace in 2010.

Letter to the Editor: Charter Amendments Deserve Community's Support

on November 1, 2012 - 12:49pm

I support the amendments to the County’s Charter. The current initiative and referendum provisions are disjointed and confusing.

The lack of clarity has led to a number of illegal and/or illogical petition efforts that have frustrated everyone.

The Charter Review Committee consisting of John Hopkins, Larry Warner, Harry Ettinger, Morrie Pongratz, Ralph Phelps, Chris Chandler, David Izraelevitz, Richard Dunn and Kyle Wheeler brought a diversity of views and knowledge to the effort.

They proposed these amendments after working diligently to craft clear and

Letter to the Editor: Protect Our House

on October 31, 2012 - 11:36am

By Sen. Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M.

I urge you to vote and to vote for Stephanie Garcia Richard for State Representative.

For a long time, our State has avoided much of the partisan politics that have divided our Nation.

With this election, things have obviously changed.

Our State is no longer shielded from third party groups infiltrating our elections, our legislature, and our local governments.

Out-of-state corporations have learned one thing over the last decade: to have influence you must control members of the state legislature.

This election is about more than just getting a good

Letter to the Editor: Attack Ads

on October 29, 2012 - 8:21am

If Citizens United is not overturned or modified, the County is going to have to send us larger recycling and garbage bins at election season to handle the third-party PAC attack ads in our mailboxes.
 
Not to mention, most of us will unplug our phones. Come to think of it, much of this literature smells too badly to be put in our recycling bins.
 
Perhaps, therefore, the solution to Citizens United is these PACs need to be taxed heavily to support our solid waste disposal systems.

In local races, we have to see each other on the street the next morning.

ELECTION 2012 News:

U.S. Sen. Jeff Bingaman and U.S. Sen. Tom Udall were in full support this weekend as they both announced endorsements of Stephanie Garcia Richard for House District 43.

“You have a lot of great candidates before you this election, but none more committed to the residents of HD43 than my friend, and your Democratic House candidate, Stephanie Garcia Richard,” Bingaman said in a news release. “I know Stephanie, I know she will work hard to provide tax relief to working families, bring jobs back to the district, and improve education.”

Letter to the Editor: What Are We Voting On Anyway?

on October 29, 2012 - 6:16am
By Joel M. Williams
Los Alamos

One would gather that the voters are voting on a bunch of amendments to the charter so that the revision is final and ratified by us.

Apparently, NOT SO. We have just gotten a new administrator whose input would be valuable, but there seems to be an effort to drive the CRC's revision through with all haste.

So, why are we now in the throes of MORE amendments by the council while we are voting?

Sounds like the CRC and the council are piecemealing it to us and certainly do NOT have a firm grasp on the total situation/package.
