November 10, 2023

Today, the City of Albuquerque announced that Associate Chief Administrative Officer Bob White will retire at the end of the month after a long career in public service.

White has been a presence in government in New Mexico for over 40 years as an attorney and public servant, formerly serving as assistant city attorney and city attorney. White was also elected as an Albuquerque City Councilor from 1979 to 1983, where he served as Council President in 1983. He has shared his legal expertise vastly with private and public entities across the state. He has been an active part of the local community, having served on the boards of various community organizations working to advance equity and the arts. White is unique in that he has served, either as an elected official or an appointed official, with all eight of the mayor’s under the current form of government.

“Our team, and all of Albuquerque, is lucky that Bob has shared his wisdom with us for decades now,” said Mayor Tim Keller. “He brought so much institutional knowledge to our office, and still maintained passion and energy for advancing equity and improving the lives of Albuquerque families.” 

“It’s been a pleasure to serve the city in many different roles throughout my career. I’m grateful to have been here for so many major milestones that have changed Albuquerque and set it on a path toward a great future,” said Bob White. “I appreciate that Mayor Keller gave me the opportunity to come back, after having been retired for 12 years, to contribute to his effort to make real progress in the city.”
