Letter To The Editor: Sierra Club Endorses Kristina Ortez To Fill Sen. Carlos Cisneros Unexpired Term

on November 4, 2019 - 8:50am

When New Mexico Sen. Carlos Cisneros died Sept. 17, White Rock lost a legislator who knew his district, was informed on the issues and expert on process, and stood with a strong voice for his constituents in his committees.

Now our Los Alamos County Councilors get to nominate a person to fill Cisneros’ unexpired term.
