Alvord’s Tough Choice Backing Moreno

Alvord highlighted Moreno’s particular vision for the neighborhood in his announcement.

Political Shifts: Entry of Thatcher and Olson

Following Alvord’s declaration, Republican state Senator Daniel Thatcher announced his candidacy for the same District 2 seat.

Thatcher plans to secure the seat by focusing on local issues that are frequently disregarded by the state government.
