Albuquerque is one of the most crime ridden cities in the United States. Not only do we have a major crime problem,but we also have high drop out rates,high teen pregnancy and a major drug problem, on top of that, we have decaying schools and even worst, corruption in our police department. With all this being said,what does our mayor do?He spends our hard earned money,not on improving our community,but on a $300 million dollar Bus lane that we don’t even need!Some say so he can throw money at his contractor friends that way they can pay him political contributions when he runs for Governor. Our city has suffered the death of three beautiful children at the hands of criminals,crime is rampant,people are shooting up stores and the mayor spends money on a street project many of the businesses on central dislike and didn’t even get the chance to vote for,nonetheless sued the city over. Even more,the bus lane project is having issues being approved by the federal government for additional funding,this city is in a quagmire of a mess. One would think that a public official would look after the best interest of the people by prioritizing what needs to be done, when you have all theses serious issues that need to be fixed,a useless bus lane down central is the last thing we are concerned about;maybe next time when it comes to electing our leadership,we’ll think twice.
