Lunch with a Leader

General Information

Lunch with a Leader is a monthly program featuring Los Alamos County leaders. The programs are normally scheduled at 11:40 a.m. on the third Tuesday of the month, on the top floor of Mesa Public Library, with catered lunch. The public is cordially invited to attend. It is not necessary to order lunch.

The catered lunch must be pre-ordered. The total cost is $10, including tax and gratuity. Download the menu and send your order to Karyl Ann Armbruster or call her at 661-6605 by the Sunday evening preceding the lunch date. You can just write out what you want to order rather than trying to fill out the form. (EXAMPLE: salad, 1/2 turkey with cheddar on sourdough with avocado.) If you do not hear back from Karyl Ann that she got your order, please send it again or call.

June 20, 2017; Rep. Stephanie Garcia Richard

Mesa Public Library, 11:40AM

Join the League of Women Voters' Lunch with a Leader. New Mexico State Representative for District 43 Stephanie Garcia Richard will be our guest.

Stephanie will discuss the three sessions of the Legislature. The first was the Special Session called last fall, then the 60 day session, and finally the last Special Session last May. She will go over the high and low points in the sessions, discuss bills she promoted, and answer questions.

Stephanie was born in Silver City and went to college at Barnard/Columbia. She and husband Eric Vasquez moved with their daughters, Nica and Elia to Los Alamos to take advantage of our outstanding public schools. While the girls went to school here, Stephanie taught 3rd grade in Pojoaque. Currently she is the science coordinator for Pablo Roybal Elementary School and is busy finishing her master's degree in school administration.

Stephanie has represented District 43 since 2012. District 43 includes Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, Santa Fe and Sandoval counties.
