State District 43 Rep. Christine Chandler will speak on the major legislative initiatives that occurred in the session, such as criminal justice reform, ethics and elections as well as her interest in tax reform at Voices of Los Alamos from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday, April 22 at the Unitarian Church, 1738 N Sage Loop.

Chandler has law degrees from Boston College and Georgetown University Law Schools.
The group will also hear from Sue Barns with the Los Alamos Environmental Sustainability Board on the board’s consideration of implementing a unit-based rate structure for residential trash services, a system that has the potential to increase fairness, decrease waste, encourage recycling, and lower costs.
