Staff Report

Around 60 supporters attended a campaign kickoff party for Los Alamos County Councilor David Izraelevitz Tuesday evening at Fuller Lodge.

“I’m overwhelmed by the number of people who showed up,” Izraelevitz said.

In the invitation to his campaign kickoff event, Izraelevitz asked those who planned to attend to bring food donations to support Assets in Action’s “March on Hunger” food drive. The drive is providing lunch items and snacks to high school students who arrive at school hungry, with no food or funds to purchase lunch.

“We’re a wealthy educated community. We’re special, but like every other community, we have needs … we have kids who come to school hungry,” Izraelevitz told the crowd. “I want to be an advocate for all the citizens of Los Alamos. We want to keep the good things we have, but maybe we can learn something from other communities to make the changes we need to make.”
