I have lived in Los Alamos for more than 50 years. I have been actively engaged in community activities during that time. Nine years as Chairman of the Republican Party of Los Alamos, eight years as County Assessor, seven years on the Parks and Recreation Board and two terms on the LARSO Board of Directors, as well as many youth activities when my children were growing up.

Reasonable people would recognize that in this encounter the mama bear was just doing her thing.
