Since first elected as a County Councilor in 2018, Council Chair Randall ‘Randy’ Ryti has been a positive and very reasoned voice on the Los Alamos County Council. Having known Randy for some twenty years, it is his nature to look at the issues facing the County through the lens of ‘what is best for the community.’ Randy is very open to discussing these issues and learning from all.
His approach to addressing growth and development in the county is measured. He is supportive of infill and redevelopment within the County before seeking to acquire additional land from either the Department of Energy or the Forest Service. He values our OpenSpace.
A retiree from a small business, Randy is aware of the demands on local businesses and the need within the county government for the establishment of policies that support small enterprises.
Public Health services, particularly behavioral and mental health, within the County and region are also an area that Randy would like to see more fully addressed in his second term.
I will be voting for Randy Ryti for County Council this election and ask that you do, too. If you aren’t convinced that he should receive your vote, go to the League of Women Voters Los Alamos Council Candidate Forum and listen to Randy Ryti and the other candidates seeking your vote: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4oUpFUYYcQ&list=PL2w7E8apy8p9isPf9tsEFZcbhlgIzrLdP&index=1
