Congraultaions Cynthia Borrego, it is a big night for voters in ABQ, and big night for Bosque Strategies.
Seven months ago I got in this race because I was sick and tired of the direction this city was headed, the crime that plagues this city has to stop, we must bring back our economy, and we must invest into our children's education. This has been a hard fought race, and I am humbled by tonight’s results, voters are hungry for real change, they want to be taken seriously and make sure the issues are actually being addressed.
On day one I will work with Mayor-elect Keller to reform APD, and help get crime under control.
I want to thank every single volunteer who gave time out of their busy days to help my campaign. I want to thank every voter who believed in me, I will work tirelessly and won't let you down.
I want to thank Tim Keller, the ABQ firefighters, ABQ police officers, AFSCME, Planned Parenthood, EQNM, CLC, Sierra Club, Senators Heinrich and Udall, Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham, Attorney General Hector Balderas, City Councilors Gibson, Pena, Davis, and Benton, Commissioner Debbie O’Malley, PRC Commissioner Valerie Espinoza, State Treasurer Tim Eichenberg, Brian Colon, Patricia Madrid, James Lewis, Javier Benavidez, Marty Chavez, Debra Haaland, Cheryl Harris, Idalia Lechuga Tena, Marjorie Germain, the Democratic Party of New Mexico, Bernalillo County Democratic Party, and State Rep Daymon Ely, and many many more. I am humbled by all the support.
Let's get to work!
