Los Alamos councilor will challenge Richard in House District 43 [Albuquerque Journal, N.M. :: ]

Los Alamos County Council Chair Geoff Rodgers, a Republican, announced Monday that he will run for the state House of Representatives District 43 seat.

Democrat Stephanie Garcia Richard is the incumbent. She became the first member of her party to win in the district for decades when she defeated incumbent Republican Jim Hall in 2012..

Rodgers has been active in public service in Los Alamos for many years. He served on the County Council from 2001-2004 and was elected again in 2010. In 2013 he was elected by the County Council members to serve as Council chair.


Rodgers, an Army veteran, was director of Transportation for Los Alamos Public Schools for 12 years and served on the Board of Directors for the North Central Regional Transit District for two years.

In 2010, Richard won the District 43 seats by about 300 votes out of more than 13,800 cast by holding her own in Los Alamos County and getting a big boost from the district's relatively small contingent of Santa Fe-area voters and in Sandoval County.

Hall, the Republican who lost to Richard, was appointed to the seat in 2011 by Gov. Susana Martinez after the death of Republican Rep. Jeanette Wallace, who had been the District 43 representative for 20 years.
