Big Bucks and New Face(s)
By Laura Sanchez
At the first meeting of the 18th Council--more or less-- Councilor Brad Winter was unanimously elected president by the five councilors that showed up, including newly elected Rey Garduño. Debbie O'Malley was unanimously elected vice president.
Winter sponsored a memorial opposing an $82 million rate hike for PNM. City experts and the state Attorney General's Office had recommended a hike of between $16.7 and $20.4 million. In spite of opposition by the Chamber of Commerce, the memorial passed unanimously.
