A Letter from our ATP ABQ City Council Team Member


Regarding the resolution recognizing the importance of Kirtland Air Force Base and Sandia National Laboratories in the defense of the United States and the economic impact that it has on the city of Albuquerque.

I am writing to you today on behalf of the ATP Albuquerque City Council Team to request that you personally take action to write/email/call the Mayor and eight of our nine City Councilors to thank them in your own words for the recent resolution that was proposed and adopted concerning Kirtland Air Force Base and Sandia Labs. Too often, our City leaders hear only complaints and requests from the public, so let's take this opportunity to thank them for 'doing the right thing'.

A significant and somewhat controversial vote was taken by our City Council on Monday night Oct. 18th to recognize the importance of Kirtland Air Force Base and Sandia Labs, and show continued support of their missions and express appreciation for the continued positive impact they have on our community and local economy.

The text of the resolution, voting details and the letter from Mayor Berry to City Council President Sanchez to launch the resolution are included at the bottom of this email (at the time of this email, the city website shows the bill has passed the Council, and I expect the Mayor's final signature shortly).

Here are the Mayor and Councilor contact details:


Mayor Richard Berry             (505) 768-3000

D1 - Ken Sanchez                 (505) 768-3183

D2 - Debbie O'Malley            (505) 768-3159

D3 - Isaac Benton                 (505) 768-3186

(*note - Mr. Benton did not attend this meeting and did not vote)

D4 - Brad Winter                   (505) 768-3101

D5 - Dan Lewis                     (505) 768-3189

D6 - Rey Garduņo                 (505) 768-3152

D7 - Michael Cook                 (505) 768-3136

D8 - Trudy Jones                   (505) 768-3106

D9 - Dan Harris                     (505) 768-3123


(you can use the map on the ABQ City Council website to find your district)


We encourage you to view for yourself the discussion and tension the councilors had in reaching the final vote by watching the GOVTV web rebroadcast of the meeting at this website: . Scroll down to the middle of the web page and click on the link for the Oct 18th City Council Meeting. The full meeting ran 1 hour 53 minutes, and the critical councilor discussion starts at about 1h:38m and runs for 12 minutes to the final vote. The first 5 minutes of this section are Councilor Garduņo's (sometimes referred to as "Grandstand Garduņo) attempt to amend and water down the resolution, and when this fails to garner any support, he chastises the other councilors citing the many complaints he has received from constituents in his district and the councilors fears to 'raise their voice'/take a stand.

The introduction made by councilors Winter and Lewis to explain and support the bill starts at 1h:10m and runs for 4 minutes. There were 13 public speakers, mostly against the resolution, and that section starts at 1h:15m and runs for 23 minutes. I wouldn't be surprised if you view the entire meeting, and this bill in particular, that you become motivated to attend future meeting and speak your own views!

Good writing, speaking, and best regards,

A Letter from the New Mexico Democratic Party
to the Albuquerque Journal.


We received a copy of a letter that was sent to the Albuquerque Journal by the Democratic Party of New Mexico. We must mention that we have Democrats and Independents in the Tea Party that are appalled by the language used by the Democratic Party of New Mexico.

Why are they afraid of fair elections?

[Dear _____,

The Tea Party is trying to steal this election.

In a letter to the Secretary of State reported by news organizations on October 20, the leader of the local Tea Party movement pledged the group will be "monitoring" voters as they cast their ballots.

Here's an excerpt from the letter: "The Albuquerque Tea Party is asserting its rights as an election-related organization, defining itself as an organization involved in voter turnout activities, as evidenced by our...get
out the vote rallies."

(Photos omitted in our copy of letter.)

There's just one problem: they're not an officially recognized organization -- and they're just not observing the election -- but are already disrupting it.

As you read this e-mail, Tea Partiers are being trained by NM GOP in their offices to disrupt the election. You and I both know what's going on here -- the Tea Party is trying to sabotage this election and are hoping Democrats don't get out and vote. They know if we do, they lose the election.

But we can't let them, not this year. The stakes are too high.


New Mexico is at a crossroads, and this election will determine whether our state continues forward on a path of growth or if we allow Republicans to take control and return with their failed policies. And guess what? The Tea Party is doing everything they can to prevent your voice from being heard on November 2.

That is why every vote matters, and we need every Democrat to show the Teabaggers we won't be intimidated into not voting.  

Fight Back! Sign Up Today To Become a Democratic Party Precinct Challenger by calling 505-830-3650 or clicking here!

This election is up to you. Stand with us as we continue to grow our economy and create new jobs for New Mexicans. Don't be fooled by Tea Party activists who want to gut education funding and promote failed Bush economic policies.

Together, Democrats can prevail on November 2.
