BY SHARON DRY
Republican Candidate for
Los Alamos County Council
The current Los Alamos County Council is not putting residents and businesses first. Small businesses are vital to the quality of life in our community. Council should support local entrepreneurs by taking a supportive and encouraging approach to help them thrive while still upholding its responsibility for building and public safety.
The recent decision and supporting comments by Judge Lidyard in the Sirphey case shows Council’s failure in dealing with this local business. The Judge harshly rebuked the County’s oversight, appeals process, and decision-making in this case. The result of Council’s mismanagement will now require the taxpayers to pay the cost of unnecessary litigation.
Councilor Reagor’s lone decision to oppose the Board of Appeals conclusions was the right one in this matter.
The Council failed at all levels and as a result, it has harmed a small business and now you must pay for it.
