Message from Councilor Sanchez on the Passing of Mr. Louis Tafoya

It is with great sadness, I share with you that today we lost a great friend and community leader. Louis Tafoya served as the President of the West Mesa Neighborhood Association, ran the Weed and Seed Program, and served on the West Side Coalition. Mr. Tafoya also proudly served our country for forty years in the U.S. Navy, he served on Albuquerque City Community Action Team, the Veteran and Military Affairs Advisory Board, and the Albuquerque Public School Bond Oversight Committee.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. Tafoya's children and grandchildren.
Mr. Tafoya will truly be missed.
