Current mood: cynical

My completed survey from the City of Albuquerque about “ABQ the Plan,” as formulated by Mayor R.J. Berry:

Mayor Richard J. Berry's plan for the future of Albuquerque.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on ABQ the PLAN.

Your opinion will help shape Mayor Berry’s presentation during the 2011 State of the City address to Albuquerque.

Working together, we can make Albuquerque an even better city.

Other Project Ideas

Take any money left over from this year’s budget (if any) and either give it back as a tax return or set it aside for next year. Or put it towards repayment of some of the city’s existing bond expenditures.

Get over it – this schtick about "there’s nothing to do" in Albuquerque is bunk. Take a look at the local newspapers – Alibi, Local iQ, the Journal, etc. – and you’ll see plenty of things to do listed.

If you really want to "invest in the future," cut taxes, cut regulations on business, and cut regulations on private property. Let us in the private sector grow the economy by getting government out of the way.
