Happy New Year, Albuquerque.
As we embark on 2024, we are taking time to reflect on the many successes of the last year like a record-breaking Balloon Fiesta, major progress on housing policy, expanding public safety resources, and so much more. In fact, you can find out more about our City’s accomplishments here in our “Year in Review” report.
We are also taking time to refresh our efforts and focus on making Albuquerque the best city for families. In just a few weeks, we will be at the legislative session, advocating for funding and policies that can move our city forward in these endeavors.
For the first time in decades, crime stats are trending in the right direction. Plans for better access and more housing are actually being realized. That’s why we must double down and capitalize on this momentum as we are looking to partner with the State to invest in needed services.
No city has more potential than ABQ to be the best place for families. But this is only something we can achieve together. Join us in our crusade during the session and let your legislators know that it’s time to give ABQ families the attention they deserve. And if you want to take your community engagement to the next level, the City offers so many opportunities to get involved through jobs, volunteering, or even boards and commissions like the ones listed in this letter.
Let’s fulfill the promise of Albuquerque together.
Mayor Tim Keller
