Los Alamos native Roger Waterman announced today that he is running for a seat on the Los Alamos County Council.

Waterman is a Republican and partner in TRK Management, a family business.

“I served three terms on council a long time ago and now have more time to spend (on public service),” Waterman said. “I feel that perhaps with my prior experience on council and my business experience, I can bring a healthy perspective to the council.”

Three seats are coming vacant on county council this year.

Councilor Vincent Chiravalle, also a Republican, announced last week that he is definitely seeking reelection. 

Council Chair Sharon Stover, a Republican and Councilor Mike Wismer, an independent, both said that they will not seek re-election.

Three Democrats, Kristin Henderson, Ken Johnson and Pete Sheehey have publicly announced their plans to run for council.

All residents interested in running for public office must file between the hours of 9 a.m., and 5 p.m. Tuesday in the Los Alamos County Clerk’s Office.

Candidates seeking multi-district offices such as the New Mexico and U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate must file between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday in the Secretary of States Office in Santa Fe.
