The League of Women Voters will host its monthly Lunch with a Leader event at 11:45 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 8 at Mesa Public Library.
The leader for November is new Los Alamos County Attorney Becky Ehler.
After working in Alamogordo for 19 years as the city attorney and as the legal advisor to the City’s Department of Public Safety, Ehler came to Los Alamos in June 2012 with her husband of 34 years.
They purchased a house in White Rock where they live with the animals the kids left behind when they moved out.
She has worked in Gallup and Roswell and had a brief experience with the federal government as a summer intern in a congressional office.
Ehler said that she thinks working in local government is the best choice because of the increased opportunity to directly interact with citizens.
She also said that she believes she has a better opportunity to make an impact on the community at this level.
“It is very gratifying to be able to see the outcome of a project upon which I have worked and see the genuine benefit to the citizens at the end of the project,” Ehler said.
To attend this open community event, call Karyl Ann Armbruster at 661-6605 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Food is ordered from the Los Alamos Co-op Market. The meal includes either a sandwich or a 1/2 sandwich with the choice of soup or salad.
All meals are $10 and include a cookie. Food orders must be made by 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6. Community members may attend the talk without ordering lunch.
