A voter who had been standing in the early voting line, for more than an hour outside the Grant County Administration Center, this afternoon, Oct. 12, 2020, texted me and complained that the line had not moved for at least 25 minutes.

A call to Clerk Marisa Castrillo confirmed that "it was normal. A machine had to be cleared out, so it was replaced by another machine. The replacement machine had to calibrate itself, which takes several minutes."

The New Mexico Central Arizona Project Entity met in a face-to-face session with several on the telephone on Oct. 6, 2020.

With a quorum determined and no public input, Entity Executive Director Anthony Gutierrez addressed the first item of old business. "I sent everyone a draft of the concluding summary that will be attached to the environmental impact statement upon the termination of the NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) process. The first part has to do with the comments that we made on the EIS during public comment but were never addressed by the joint leads, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and the Interstate Stream Commission, and includes the Dear Reader letter, which was attached to Volume 1 of the EIS, the planning process and timelines and positive and negative outcomes."

The two candidates vying for the Grant County Commission District 5 seat are incumbent Democrat Harry Browne and challenger Republican Thomas Shelley.

Browne started off the evening with his opening speech. He thanked Daily Press Publisher Nickolas Seibel for hosting the forum, as it was the best way to get information to voters, when campaigning is difficult. He also thanked the audience. He compared the presidential debate, which he did not watch, to this forum, saying that this community does not have to face the same sort of division and chaos.
