Two major New Mexico newspapers, the Santa Fe New Mexican and the Albuquerque Journal North have endorsed Chris Chandler for the House District 43 seat.
The New Mexican endorsement reads: “Democrat Christine Chandler, a Los Alamos County councilor, is the best person to succeed Garcia Richard to represent the district, which covers Los Alamos County, as well as parts of Santa Fe, Rio Arriba and Sandoval counties. Chandler is an attorney who understands the importance of water rights in keeping acequias running, promising to support legislation to stop the easy transfer of these important rights without allowing community input. She will be a strong voice for early childhood education, better approaches to public safety than simply locking people up and protecting our public lands and wilderness areas. For District 43, Christine Chandler.”
The Albuquerque Journal North reads: “In Los Alamos-centered House District 43, the Journal North endorses Democrat Christine Chandler to fill the seat being vacated by Stephanie Garcia Richard, who is running for state Land Commissioner.
“Chandler, retired after years as an in-house lawyer at the Los Alamos lab, has experience as a County Councilor, and on important boards in and out of local government. She also has served a useful apprenticeship as a legislative analyst for the Senate Judiciary Committee, which works on drafting and evaluating the legality of bills at the Legislature.”
