Los Alamos Political Leaders Cross Party Lines

Longtime Los Alamos Republican Party leader JoAnn Johnson shared a friendly hug and jovial conversation with longtime Los Alamos Democratic Party leader George Chandler when the two bumped into each other Tuesday in the County Clerk’s Office. They had each stopped in to check the status of who had filed for office. ‘I’ve known George for years and even though we belong to different parties, I think the world of him,’ Johnson said. Johnson is serving her final year as Los Alamos County Assessor before she term limits out. Chandler is an attorney and married to appointed Probate Judge Christine Chandler who filed for election Tuesday. Photo by Carol A. Clark/ladailypost.com
