Greetings Albuquerque,

For the past several weeks, our top priority has been keeping people safe during this 'new normal' that we are all experiencing.

There are folks on the front lines from first responders, healthcare workers, food workers, and more. There are our own City employees who are working around the clock to provide critical services to the most vulnerable - from making sure seniors are taken care of, to bus drivers helping kids get to their free meals at APS, and solid waste drivers keeping our city clean. They all deserve our gratitude.

I also want to thank all of you who are staying home, that is the most important thing you can do right now. Liz and I know that brings up its own challenges, like when you are on calls with your colleagues with your kids climbing on you.

We will get though this together by respecting others and stepping up for each other but there's no doubt it's an unprecedented and challenging time right here in Albuquerque, and all across the country.

Stay home if you can and stay safe.

-Mayor Tim Keller
