Mayor Keller Releases Statement on Violent Insurrection at US Capitol

Jan. 6, 2020

Mayor Tim Keller released the following statement this afternoon:

“I join so many in the heartache of seeing our core American democratic institutions come under siege. Thankfully, our delegation is safe. The images of violent insurrection flooding our screens from DC are the sad result of stoking fear over facts and partisan politics over our founding Constitution. Free and fair elections and peaceful transitions of power must stand. 

Albuquerque has shown time and time again that we can rise above attempts to divide us and find ways to remain united, peacefully and safely living out our values. Let's keep it that way."
