Berry's Next Step
After giving his victory speech, Berry said he wanted to "roll up his sleeves" and get to work. He's meeting Mayor Chavez tomorrow for lunch, and one of his first items of business is to sit down with councilors.
"Hey, We Did It"
Berry's giving his victory speech. He thanked the mayor for his years of service, and Romero for his attitude during the campaign. He's stressing working across borders in the Council.
"Thank you for this great honor."
That's it. Meet your new mayor.
Berry Takes the Stage
He's going to take the stage. This has to be it. The crowd's going crazy.
Berry: "Haven't Pulled It Off Yet"
Berry still isn't saying anything conclusive. He says he wants to win all precincts first. So even though Chavez left his party, and Berry is staying strong in the numbers, nothing is official.
Berry Gives a Small Speech
I was expecting a victory speech, but Berry just thanked everyone for their support thus far, said it looked good so far. We've got nothing official yet, but we do have 123 out of 186 precincts reporting, with Berry at 42 percent to Chavez' 35.
Lewis Ahead of Cadigan
The District 5 race is shaking things up. While other Council incumbents are in the lead, Dan Lewis is ahead of sitting Councilor Michael Cadigan 55 to 44, with 7 out of 17 precincts counted.
Sally Mayer Sighting
Sally Mayer (D7 councilor who dropped out of the race for re-election) is one giant smile at Berry's party. She's a big supporter and is pleased to be on the sidelines, stress-free. Mayer's confident Berry's going to win this one, and she isn't afraid to say how happy that makes her. "Chavez reaped what he sowed," she says. "Four years ago, I was one of his biggest supporters ... but I lost faith in his commitment." Mayer had a falling out with Chavez over some of the animal issues in the city.
She says she's going to Chicago for a year to help take care of her grandkids (sometime before March), but after that, she posits that she may be back.
In other ABQ celeb sightings news, Sheriff Darren White is roaming around the crowd as well.
Berry HQ, Part Two
I just caught up with Berry. He's staying away from saying anything too concrete, of course, resting solidly in camp humble. ("I trust the voters. I'm comfortable with whatever they decide.") He spent his day shaking hands in the University, Kirtland and North Valley neighborhoods, with a stop 'round lunchtime at the Owl Cafe for a green chile cheeseburger and chocolate shake. Seems to be holding him over well. He looks good.
From Berry HQ
I'm here at Berry's headquarters. He's up in his room (he came down to shake some hands earlier before I got here). Lots of smiles all around. This is probably the most upbeat place to be thus far in the evening. Will check in as things develop.

Napkin Art #15: ABQ 505 Squiggleydoo
I can’t remember much about the woman who made today’s napkin except that she’s a kickass artist and was super kind to draw a napkin for me. Stark spaces, bold lines and a sense of collapsing symmetry underscore a message of iconic (ironic?) local pride. It’s destined to be a classic. Thank you, napkin lady.
