Hello Albuquerque,

Each day, people are stepping up for one another during this uncertain time, in true One Albuquerque spirit. This week I had the opportunity to thank some of the drivers in our Transit Department for keeping our city moving and getting folks to critical services like medical appointments or grocery stores for food. In addition to taking care of our city, they are taking care of each other by making homemade masks for every driver.

This was just one of the many times that I've seen Burqueños find ways to come together and help their neighbors and it's times like these that I am most proud to serve as the mayor of a strong, resilient city full of selfless people who never stop asking "How can I help?" We must continue to help each other by staying home when we can.

I want to thank you all again for helping us flatten the curve. Thank you to everyone who is keeping our city running and taking care of some of our most vulnerable by providing meals for seniors, caring for the children of other essential workers and providing safe spaces for those experiencing homelessness.

We will get through this together, Albuquerque,

-Mayor Tim Keller
