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 jobsvolunteering, or even boards and commissions like the ones listed in this letter.

Let’s fulfill the promise of Albuquerque together. 

Sincerely,

Mayor Tim Keller

It’s the Holiday Season

Hello Albuquerque, 

This is truly the best time of year in Albuquerque. Besides getting to spend time with our loved ones, it’s always so special to see the snow-capped Sandias, luminarias lining the street, and our community coming together to celebrate the triumphs of the last year and the promise of the next one. 

This is also an important time for us to take stock and evaluate how we can better support one another. This could look like supporting local businesses as you shop for holiday gifts, or joining our Civic Engagement team and getting involved in community service opportunities. You could even join one of our many boards and commissions and help make a difference in City policy. 

There are so many ways to get involved in our incredible, unique community and to make a positive impact. We are so fortunate to call Albuquerque our home, and we are ready to take on another year moving our city forward and fulfilling its potential. 

On behalf of the City of Albuquerque, we wish you a happy and healthy holiday season. 


Sincerely,
Mayor Tim Keller
