Making a Positive Contribution

   When in Seattle a few weeks ago, I reconnected with two former Albuquerqueans, Patti Cohenour and Michael Blum. Patti, of course, has starred on Broadway and many other stages. Michael was a stalwart of Albuquerque theater for 25 years before moving…

Where's that confounded BRIDGE? Bond election TOMORROW!

Mayor Barry and about half of our city council have put forth an AQB Bond Issue that goes to voters TOMORROW, October 4th.

Half of the money would go towards the START of rebuilding the I-25/Paseo del Norte Interchange (Including improved bike trails and pedestrian access) and half the money would go towards the start of building a Sports Complex.

My feeling, as a Resident, a Realtor, and someone who has learned a fair amount about ABQ development over the past 5 years... is…

Recovery Cat 8.20.2011

Progressive Era reformers looked to the primary election as a way to measure popular opinion of candidates, as opposed to the opinion of the bosses. In 1910, Oregon became the first state to establish a presidential preference primary, which requires delegates to the National Convention to support the…

All Politics are Local or relational....

Today, I will walk into an Elementary School and color in some circles in an attempt to actively participate in a right that has been hard to come by for some, if not all of us. This year is different though. This year I will be voting, not for who I think is best, or who I feel will lead better, but instead, I will be setting aside my fishing pole and pick up my wife's, casting it into the deep muddy waters of the political ocean.



Why people vote the way they do is as varied as the… Continue

Recovery Cat 10.30.2010

Psephology is the study of results and other statistics relating to elections (especially with a view to predicting future results)... When elections are called, politicians and their supporters attempt to influence policy by competing directly for the votes of constituents in what are called campaigns. Supporters for a campaign can be either formally organized or loosely affiliated, and frequently utilize campaign advertising. It is common for… Continue

Morning Fix - Daze Off

Election Trend or Fluke?

**There were a number of hyperlinks to sources that, unfortunately, did not make it when I posted this... I'll try to fix it.**



To some, this line of questioning may seem naive. I am a political rookie, I confess. I'm just (and maybe I shouldn't be?) surprised by the election results and I wanted to open this up for (civilized, please) discussion if anyone's game.



The president is a Democrat. Congress has a Democratic majority.

Albuquerque had the same Democrat for… Continue

Thank You

Last week, New Mexicans across the district from Belen to Bernalillo, from Estancia to the East Mountains, and, from the Northeast Heights to the South Valley rose up, went to the polls and cast their ballot to change Washington.



To those of you who supported me, I'm humbled by your support and on behalf of my family and my campaign staff, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything that you've done to make this victory possible. This campaign was never about me -… Continue

Go Tell Your Mama - It's Obama! (campaign signs in a post election world)

Wow! There were so many times in the past eight years that I thought a positive change to the national political scene was going to be impossible without a total breakdown of the system, a complete dismantling and even civic revolution. Last night, watching a new, young, charismatic leader accept the Presidency Elect of our country I was (thankfully) proved wrong.



Barack Obama and his brilliant campaign team have, I believe, changed the election process for the future of America.… Continue

Looking Forward to Change!

I watched, as most people did, the progress of the polls tonight. Wavering between mail biting and breath taking excitement. The end results seemed apparent to me early on, but some strange superstition made me afraid to celebrate until I heard the declaration that Barack Obama will indeed be the 44th U.S. president.



I am not ashamed to say my eyes watered, my hands trembled, I jumped -literally- for joy. How amazing it is to be part of this historical event.



This has been… Continue

It's Time for Change



I come to Duke City Fix often despite my busy schedule because I believe it's important to participate in this community. And, I will continue to participate even if you give me the honor of serving in Congress. I know that direct political appeals are sometimes frowned upon in this community, but I wanted to share the following note I just sent to my supporters because this is one of the… Continue
