Why Richard Berry won the mayor’s seat

The morning after the municipal elections, as I was removing droopy “Romero for Mayor” signs from my front lawn while a steady drizzle soaked my jacket into a leaden metaphor for my soggy spirit, I got a cell phone call from a friend (actually, now a former friend) who was calling just to berate me.

Chavez Holes Up

Albuquerque drops a bomb on Mayor Marty.
Albuquerque drops a bomb on Mayor Marty.

At the Mayor Martin Chavez headquarters, doors are locked. Certain people are being allowed inside to watch results. It looks pretty grim from what I can see. The mayor appears stressed. Reporters are pacing the O'Neill's parking lot or hovering near their cars. We've been told Chavez is going to show up at O'Neill's at 9 p.m.

I've covered elections for 20 years, and I've never seen a candidate who holes up behind locked doors to watch election results.

When polls close, results are posted on the doors of the polling locations. It looks like Chavez is receiving results location by location. It's possible that he'll know the results before the public.

Tonight! A Mayoral Debate!

The questions will be good. Yesterday, we gathered round a conference room tablewe members of independent and public mediaand put our collective brainpower into thinking about the city, its direction and its citizens. This won't be politics as usual.

You can show up to make sure that it isn't. I'll be collecting questions from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Bank of America Theatre at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. I'll pick a couple of the best ones and pose them to the candidates during the broadcast.

If you can't make it down in person, listen tonight at 7 p.m. to KUNM 89.9. Or you can catch it Friday at 7 p.m. on KNME Channel 5.

Even better, see a live-stream of the event here at alibi.com and live-blog with us. (You should also be able to catch it and join the fray from any of the media partners' sites).

Don't forget about the debate afterparty at Blackbird Buvette (509 Central). Down a Civic Duty (seriously, that's our drink special), listen to some jams by Jessica Cassyle Carr and friends, and discuss the city.

ALL OF THIS IS FREE.
