By BILL HARGRAVES
Los Alamos

Over the past 35 years I have lived in Santa Fe, Alcalde, Los Alamos and Velarde. The 3rd Congressional District is my home. I’ve raised my family here, had the good fortune to work at LANL and been elected to the Los Alamos School Board.

Democratic Candidate
Los Alamos County Council
