Some of you know me as the guy that owned Radio Shack. I have been in Los Alamos for the last 40 years. I came here from Lawrence Berkeley Lab. I left the lab and went into business back in 1987. I have been a businessman in Los Alamos ever since.
But enough about me. I want to tell you about my friend Pete Sheehey and what type of person he is. I have known Pete for many years now and had many conversations with him about the problems small businesses have in our town. I have found him to be concerned and interested in what I had to say. In my 30 years as a businessman in town I have seen many issues over the years and I have shared them with Pete.
When I talk with him I find him to be a wealth of information on local issues. He is well informed or will find answers about anything I ask him. I have talked to him recently about the ongoing issue of code enforcement and I have told him my concerns from a small business perspective. His take on this and other issues is reasonable and balanced.
Pete is a retired scientist whose only concern as a politician is what is good for our town. I think that Pete will make a fine State Legislator because he is very approachable, hard working, and he really cares about the issues.
