Mayor Richard J. Berry

Mayor Richard J. Berry was sworn into office on December 1st, 2009. Prior to serving as Albuquerque's chief executive officer, he was twice elected to the New Mexico Legislature.

He earned his degree in finance and administration at the University of New Mexico and was a letterman on the Lobo track and field team, specializing in the decathlon.

Since his election in late 2009, Mayor Berry has successfully worked to drop the crime rate in Albuquerque to some of the lowest levels in 20 years and has brought the City to the national forefront for transparency and accountability.
