Welcome to the City of Albuquerque

Fiscal Responsibility

Up one level
Document Actions

I started my term as Mayor when the City was in a fiscal crisis. We began our budget process with a nearly $100 million dollar shortfall between fiscal years 2010 and 2011.

With this large of a shortfall we had a decision to make and we chose to see it as opportunity and a challenge.  I am proud to say that our leadership team and the great employees of this city have risen to the occasion. ABQ View is our transparency portal - these pages show just how dedicated we are to ensuring that we’re doing ethical business for our bosses, the taxpayers.
