The Issue: “Dangerous” should not be the word that comes to mind when people think of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Our city is in crisis with a rise in auto theft, property crimes and violent crimes. It’s no surprise that the recent jump in crime comes as there are fewer officers on the streets making arrests, and fewer criminals in our jail. We will make Albuquerque an unwelcome place for those who break into our homes, steal our property, and wreak havoc on our city’s neighborhoods.
To do this, we will embrace change, not the status quo!
Along with new Police Leadership, Dan will transform APD, leading from the front—not dragged along by the court and DOJ. Check Out Dan’s Public Safety Plan.
The Issue: Our city is plagued with slow job-growth and years of economic bust. I am totally unwilling to see our city and our businesses fail. We will lift families out of poverty, help small businesses thrive, and create high paying jobs, with a bold plan for economic prosperity. Check Out Dan’s Economic Plan.
The Issue: City leaders can no longer turn a blind eye to the City’s sole school district. APS has been plagued by scandal and failing outcomes for too long. Parents, teachers, and community advocates for our children have found that it is near impossible to hold district bureaucrats accountable. We will increase student performance by leading the charge to fundamentally change education within the boundaries of our city. Check Out Dan’s Game-Changing Education Plan.
The Issue: I recognize the need to bring our community together, to rebuild trust between the public and the people they elect to manage their city, to instill pride in a city where we work together to overcome challenges that have slowed our progress. We will become a thriving, stronger city when we break down barriers that divide us. We will remove politics and self-interest from City Hall and make the city work for people, neighborhoods, and small business, not the other way around. Check Out Dan’s “People First” Plan.
