Los Alamos

Someone needs to correct mischaracterizations of the County tourism plan made by council candidate Brady Burke. I volunteer.

I volunteer to do that, having spent more than two years on that plan, working with one of the most conscientious planning groups (20-plus citizen volunteers) I’ve been a part in 39 years here in Los Alamos and in my 20 prior years as a marketing exec before moving here.

I also volunteer to correct what’s flat wrong, having founded an enduring business in Los Alamos, based on what are flat-out real-world realities.

Democratic Candidate
Los Alamos County Council
The thing I have most enjoyed about my first campaign for public office is getting to meet citizens and hear firsthand their concerns about County government as well as areas where they think the County excels. I have talked to most people at their homes while walking the neighborhoods, but I have also met some folks for coffee and had a chance for longer conversations.
A conversation on an issue is a good way to more fully understand the problem and to have a dialogue on possible solutions.
