La migra in the Prisoner Transport Center? Officer-involved shootings? Take-home police cars? Water-sucking lawns? That fabled arena? Your neighbor’s dog? The rainbow warrior?
Mayor Richard Berry is holding a “Chat with the Mayor” session today at 2 p.m. With a New Mexico ID in your hand, you will be given five minutes with Berry. First-come, first-served at the Thomas Bell Community Center, 3001 University SE.
City employees gathered en masse to let the mayor and Council know they want to be part of the budget-tightening dialogue. More than a hundred rank-and-file workers—firefighters, police officers, clerks and others—showed up, and union representatives spoke, asking to be a part of solving the budget shortfall. They said Mayor Richard Berry assured their inclusion in the discussion, but so far that hasn't happened.
