Happy New Year Albuquerque

Hello Albuquerque,

I hope that you have had a happy and restful holiday. As we take this time to reflect on the past year and prepare for the one just around the corner, I would like to express how grateful I am for this community. In times of crisis and challenge, I have seen Albuquerque unite and overcome, and ultimately find cause for celebration. 

Our City’s mission to serve all Burqueños and set solutions in place still holds strong as we enter the new year. We are looking forward to advancing critical initiatives that tackle our housing crisis, public safety, Downtown revitalization, and sustainability. We have made substantial progress in these priority areas from passing legislation through the Metro Crime Initiative, creating new housing opportunities, and securing funding for the Downtown Rail Trail. Our ABQ 2022 Year in Review highlights many of our accomplishments from the past year. 

While I know the new year will bring its own unique challenges, we remain steadfast in our commitment to making Albuquerque a better place for everyone that calls it home. We are confident that we will carry the momentum of the last year with us into 2023 and beyond. 

We are looking forward to seeing what the future holds, and we wish everyone a very happy and healthy New Year.
Mayor Tim Keller
