Journey Santa Fe's Community Conversations: Santa Fe Municipal Elections

Sunday, February 2, 2014 - 11:00am

Houston Johansen in conversation with Rick Lass

  Every ten years, city voters are asked whether to amend the City’s charter, the mini constitution of city government. We will look at the process that created this year’s proposals and at the proposals themselves. We will also look at what it takes to become a candidate and the mechanics of Public Campaign Financing.

Houston Johansen (photo at right) was a member of the Santa Fe Charter Review Commission and has been a candidate for city council.

Rick Lass has been active in proposing changes to our electoral process since being told he was spoiling elections by participating in them.
