Alibi V.21 No.43 • Oct 25-31, 2012
Feature Shoutout! Maggie Toulouse Oliver During hectic election seasons when they’re likely slammed with questions, the voice on the other end of the line is always ready to help us out. Maybe that doesn’t seem exceptional, but trust us: Prompt, accurate info is not the norm among governmental agencies.
Feature $$$ for I-25 and Paseo: NO Albuquerque city leaders are asking for $50 million in gross receipts tax revenue bonds to reconstruct the Paseo del Norte and I-25 interchange.
Feature Minimum Wage Boost it! Because it’s the right thing to do. Why we should raise it and help low-income families in Albuquerque.
Feature Bonds Though we’re not crazy about the Municipal Bond Question that gives $50 million to the mega Paseo construction project, the Alibi supports almost all of the other bonds on the ballot. Bond Questions A, B and C allow for improvements to senior citizen facilities, libraries and higher education improvements.
