I am writing to express my support for Sara Scott’s candidacy for LA County Council.
I had the privilege of working with Sara at Los Alamos National Laboratory when she was in a leadership role, and I can attest to her effectiveness as a leader and a strategist. She has an ability to analyze multiple sides of an issue and formulate a proactive plan for reaching a productive, beneficial outcome.
Sara knows how to listen and when to adjust. She has tremendous integrity, a great work ethic, and superb dedication to task.
LA County and its citizens would be well served by having Sara on the Council. I am pleased to share this expression of support and look forward to voting for Sara in the upcoming primary.

Letter To The Editor: Sara Scott Is An Excellent Choice For Los Alamos County Council

I believe Sara Scott would be an excellent member of the County Council. She has worked over 23 years (1989 – 2013) at LANL in a variety of scientific and leadership positions.

I first met Sara when she became Program Manager for Nonproliferation and Arms Control that’s responsible for programs in nuclear safeguards and nonproliferation, where I worked. My son, also a chemist, worked with Sara at DP-Site when she first joined the Lab.
Sara’s been active in community work including sewing and baking for dance recitals, serving as Girl Scout treasurer, chaperoning school trips, and providing housing for LANL summer students.
She developed and shepherded a legal package to obtain nonprofit (501(c)(3)) status for the High School Choir Boosters; this provides additional skills useful for a County Councillor.
Sara’s very pleasant, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. She’s worked regularly with government agencies that fund and oversee work at LANL (DOE, NNSA, NRC, NSF, DOS, DOD). This would be a benefit to Los Alamos County, especially given the upcoming contract changes.
