Good morning Albuquerque,

Our city, state and country have been faced with many challenges in the last few months, from the coronavirus pandemic to the fight against the long legacy of racial injustice. This is a pivotal moment and an opportunity for us to ramp up action on some important and necessary changes. 

When coronavirus struck, the City stepped up to find ways to provide a safety net for some of the most vulnerable in our community. That safety net has provided over 100,000 meals to seniors, childcare and rental assistance for working families, medical care for our homeless population, and grants for microbusinesses. 

The murder of George Floyd woke many cities up to the need for change when it comes to systemic racism and inequality. In Albuquerque, we have already been on the road to reform over the last two and a half years but we know there is still so much more to do. We have implemented dozens of meaningful changes and began to direct money toward opportunities for youth in every neighborhood, violence interruption and diversion programs, along with investments in parks, libraries and other infrastructure in areas like the International District that have too long been ignored. 

While our community steps up to bring change better and faster, one thing that will remain constant is our commitment to a safe, inclusive and innovative Burque for all.

Stay safe, Albuquerque,

-Mayor Tim Keller
