Sheehey: Let’s Settle The Debate About The Role Of The Sheriff In Los Alamos

on May 24, 2017 - 7:33pm
By PETE SHEEHEY
Los Alamos County Councilor

There has been a long-standing debate about the role of the Sheriff in Los Alamos. The present Sheriff, Marco Lucero, was elected in 2010 and re-elected in 2014, stressing the importance of the Sheriff’s role in Los Alamos. County Councils, not including myself, have worked to minimize that role, drastically cutting his budget and ultimately calling an election last November to eliminate the office. After a contentious campaign, our citizens voted to keep an elected Sheriff.  

It’s time to settle this debate.

Letter To The Editor: Rec Bond Plea To County Council - Can't We Compromise?

on May 24, 2017 - 11:58am
By LAUREN GRIFFITH
Los Alamos

Following the recent recreation bond election outcome, I wondered if there is a possible compromise that we could look at. 

From discussions with and reading opinions by ‘no’ voters, it sounds like there were two main issues with the bond (I realize there were others, but these seemed to be the biggest):

a) it was ‘all or nothing’ and many of them might have been happy with some of the projects, but not all of them; and

b) it was going to increase property taxes, resulting in debt for us and future generations. 

I have to say, I wholeheartedly agree with the
