Geoff Rodgers Files For NM House Dist. 43

Los Alamos County Council Chair Geoff Rodgers with his son Jason, 6, filed this morning at the Secretary of State’s Office in Santa Fe for Dist. 43 House of Representatives on the Republican ticket. Dist. 43 encompasses Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Rio Arriba and Sandoval counties. Rodgers faces former Los Alamos Councilor Vincent Chiravalle in the June 3 Primary Election. The winner of that race will challenge Democrat Rep. Stephanie Garcia Richard in the November General Election. ‘I’ve attached a pic of me filing for office. ‘I don’t accept that New Mexico has to be on the wrong end of just about every list that matters,’ Rodgers said. ‘We are blessed with rich culture, history, natural resources and a work force that wants to go back to work. We need people in Santa Fe that are willing to break from the decades old failed philosophies and policies that got us here and chart a new course.’ Photo by Carol A. Clark/
