Hello Albuquerque,

What a great start to our summer. We hope you have been taking advantage of this wonderful weather and exploring the city whether it’s hiking in the Foothills, taking a dip at a City pool, or supporting local vendors at Art Walk, the Rail Yards Market, and PrideFest. Here at the City, we’re feeling rejuvenated in our mission to make Albuquerque the best it can be. We’re ready for this new season, and we’re maintaining momentum from the 2023 State of the City.

This year’s celebration centered around “the power of us.” Every day, we have the opportunity to make a positive impact on those around us and ultimately shape the future of our city. As Burqueños, we are bound together by shared values and a deep appreciation for our home. Our collective power is evident as we continue to create and implement solutions to challenges that affect all of us like public safety, housing, and economic development. 

We appreciate everyone who joined us and shared their stories at State of the City, especially our featured storytellers – Kyle, Dawn, Marie, Vanessa, DeVante, and Tom – who made this event so special and who are continuously making our city better. You can watch their stories and the full speech here.

We are so grateful for this community and we are inspired by the story that we are writing together. Thank you to everyone who is joining us in moving Albuquerque towards its bright and beautiful future.

Mayor Tim Keller
