Getting On the Wrong Bus

One thing I really appreciate about DCF is the desire to stay positive about our fair city.

I was recently at a workshop where people were talking about careers and livelihood in Albuquerque and was struck by the common theme of hate. These were all good people, mind you, people who wanted to be happy and prosperous. Yet each and every one of them (including me) was holding on to a reason for their unhappiness.

Several people… Continue

Candidates spar over term limits

In a Channel 4 News report "Candidates Spar Over Term Limits," Richard again reaffirmed his belief that entrenched encumbancy leads to entrenched corruption. As a reminder, Richard put term limits on his own leadership position while serving in the NM State Senate and as Mayor he has vowed to work with Albuquerque's delegation at the Legislature to put forth a constitutional amendment so voters can put the… Continue

Our Budget

I'm getting ready for our Revenue Stabilization Committee meeting in Farmington and keep thinking about "the lesser of evils" and thought I'd reach out and see what others feel about the following potential situation. Lets say our state funding continues to fall, and we have stark choices. Hopefully it won't come to this but, what would you do?

- cut services (social service, schools, universities, government headcount?)

- cut headcount and/or across the board 10% cuts for… Continue

More About Politics than Public Safety

In response to Mayor Chavez’ recent call for adding 100 more police officers to the APD payroll,

I would like to applaud him for the idea. Absolutely—we need more police officers on the street and this should have been done a long time ago. The Mayor is also right when he says law and order should be the administration’s number one priority.

Unfortunately, with less than 90… Continue

Marc Schiff sentenced - "A good day for justice"

Following today’s sentencing of Marc Schiff, Richard called the news “a good day for justice, but a sad reminder of the corruption that happens too often in our city and state.”

Schiff, the architect for the scandal-ridden Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court project, admitted guilt to charges of mail fraud and conspiracy after he wrote false invoices that were used to pay kickbacks to public officials. Schiff was sentenced to 12 months plus a day in prison, and ordered to repay,… Continue

Richard Romero wants citizen input on public safety

The recent string of tragic events in our community serve as a sobering reminder of the public safety problems that our city has been plagued with for many years. Its unfortunate that in a city the size of Albuquerque, the current mayor deems it necessary to be accompanied by an armed, three man security detail during his daily and after hours activities.

Richard Romero has a definite… Continue
