I support Mark Rayburn’s opinion that “Where Discoveries Are Made” is a viable, but simple tagline for Los Alamos. (I also feel there is nothing wrong with “The Atomic City.” Either one will work just fine.)
In short, I don’t see why the council is in such a dither to create a new tagline at an outrageous cost. Are they hoping to establish their “reign” with something they think the community will remember? It’s more likely they’ll be remembered for spending money that wasn’t warranted and making a big to-do about something that is of little value to most residents.
I don’t understand why the council is continuing on this path when it’s very clear that the residents don’t want to have the tagline as a focus of this council, or any other council in the future.
I also don’t understand why the community doesn’t demand that they table this effort forever, and move on to something that will really benefit the community. Aren’t the council members in office to serve us rather than the other way around?
