Council Bite

City Breaks for Builders

There was both finger-pointing and back-patting at the Monday, Aug. 16 City Council meeting.

During the often-colorful public comment section, a Catholic priest challenged Councilor Rey Garduño to explain why he spoke at an abortion rights rally [ “Protesters Stand Against Anti-Abortion Group,” Aug. 5-11, 2010]. Garduño declined to be engaged by the mad-dogging man of the cloth. The priest said Albuquerque was becoming “the abortion capital of the nation.” This comment and another about former state Sen. Manny Aragon being “the most successful state senator in New Mexico history” made for a couple of lively moments in an otherwise lackluster meeting.
