Regular Voting: November 8, 2022.
Cultivation of new business in Los Alamos, as well as protection of current businesses, is the highest priority. Business in Los Alamos means success for everyone.
We want Los Alamos to have energy security. Whether through renewable energy or conventional means, having energy access is critical to our community.
We will continue to support, and improve support to, our military members, veterans, first responders (fire/police/medical), and their families.
Affordable housing, medical care, various support services for our community such as alcohol and substance abuse counseling will be supported.
My name is Reggie Page and I am running for Los Alamos County Council. I moved to Los Alamos in 2009 to work at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Like many others, I chose to live in close proximity to the laboratory for convenience and for what Los Alamos had to offer--a small town atmosphere and everything a person needed, without having to leave "the hill".
Such is not the case anymore. Many of the small businesses that were part of a thriving county have closed. Our county council needs to identify strategies that promote small business, not discourage them. If elected, I will work with existing and potential small businesses to promote growth through aggressive incentives and economic development programs. We will look at what business models are working and encourage similar development.
My professional background is in project management, and I have 30+ years of experience in utilities, both at Los Alamos and at other locations. Los Alamos County Council recently approved a plan to eliminate natural gas resources, which, I believe, would place an unbearable financial burden on the residents and businesses of this county. Any plan having such a broad impact on county residents and businesses must include not only a cost estimate, but a cost-benefit analysis and further research of alternatives that are both reliable and affordable.
Dreams and emotions are fine, but must be balanced with common sense.
Together, we can turn the PAGE.
Our First Responders: Our first responders: police, fire and medical, are key to keeping Los Alamos a safe and healthy environment. I support all of our first responders, and will take on their professional needs to ensure they are successful, and thus Los Alamos is safe and secure.
Our Veterans: Support of our veterans in the community is one of my goals. Improvement of veteran health care options in Los Alamos is one thing I would like to champion. Construction of a new veteran memorial site to help the community see the sacrifices our veterans have made is also on my list of things to accomplish.
Our Environment: Taking care of our environment is central to all members of the county. If elected, I will work to ensure that the county leads the way in energy conservation and efficiency. Saving energy across the board with energy efficient lighting, appliances, water fixtures and more can help county infrastructure reduce the overall carbon footprint.
Our Businesses: Building up businesses in Los Alamos is key to keeping a healthy and vibrant community. I will work to ensure that the county clears the path for any and all entrepreneurs.
Statement on the Los Alamos County Nuisance Code:
There are several of us in this county that can’t afford to have a mechanic shop change our oil or repair our brakes. To make it a nuisance in this ordinance is completely ridiculous. It is time to remove the overreaching County Council members and replace them with ones that have a commitment to the residents of this county.
Vote Reggie Page for County Council…
