About Mayor Berry

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.

Mayor Berry is also an accomplished business entrepreneur with over two decades of experience in New Mexico and throughout the Southwest United States. 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.

He has cut the size of local Government while keeping city employees on the job and services to the community intact. He has accomplished this without raising taxes and has consistently worked to provide value for taxpayers.

Mayor Berry is listening and wants to hear from you.
