Letter To The Editor: Now It Can Be Told – Thank you, Christine Chandler!

UNM-LA welding student

During her 2018 election campaign for the New Mexico House Dist. 43 race, Christine Chandler emphasized her support for all education, highlighting the training at the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos for emergency medical technicians, machinists, welders, etc.

When I mentioned that UNM-LA was submitting a proposal for a certificate welding program and that local monetary contributions were listed in the application to show strong local support, Chris Chandler immediately sent a check for $500 a few weeks before the election. No photo op. No press release. No hoopla. No electioneering. Just support!

Now that the election is safely over, I think it is appropriate to express appreciation publicly.

Thank you, Chris!
