Our elected officials are out of touch with reality in Albuquerque. Violent crime is rampant, car theft is out of control, good people are leaving but the Bernalillo County Commission and Albuquerque City Council work to pass plastic bag bans and complicated sick leave rules that will hurt jobs and drive businesses away.

Survey Shows Elected Officials Out of Touch with What Matters to Residents of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County
465 people in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County were surveyed about what matters to them. Here are the results:
Crime Matters in ABQ
Tell the County Commission that they are out of touch with the needs of our community. The people of Albuquerque want relief from violent crime, armed robberies, shootings, car theft, rape, assault and homicide. We are tired of dealing with the crime and violence that has become the backdrop of our beautiful city.
Remind them that government’s first duty and highest obligation is public safety.
The County Commission should be concentrating on building a mental health facility that they have been taxing Albuquerque residents for since 2015. They have the money but they are too busy passing plastic bag bans and complicated sick leave rules that will hurt jobs and drive businesses away.
Tell county commissioners that we need them to concentrate on what matters most to the citizens of Albuquerque. It’s the CRIME, stupid!
Our elected officials are out of touch. Albuquerque’s crime rate is out of control. Merely hiring more police is not enough.
They have a legal obligation to ensure public safety; but instead they make busy work passing unfunded mandates on the businesses that are doing their best just to stay afloat.
City council is making criminals out of businesses owners rather the making criminals out of criminals.
In one week time period, there were three highly publicized crime incidents occurring on business property; two were fatal.
Businesses and our employees are alarmed and concerned that this illicit behavior continues to happen unnoticed by those who could do the most to address it, county commissioners and city councilors.
