231 Albuquerque Issues in the News and More

On this week’s podcast discussion Paul and Wally discuss the latest COVID 19 update from Gov. Lujan Grisham. According to her latest pronouncements, theaters, entertainment centers, and bars in New Mexico are not likely to open until there’s a COVID vaccine.  The Gov. also begs Congress for more COVID aid in her recent testimony. There were not many specifics or details, just “send cash!”

In a bit of good news, the City of Albuquerque Council rejected an ordinance that would have “requested” the Legislature place a constitutional amendment on the ballot giving local governments the ability to enact gun control measures.

APD police chief Geier has resigned (or been fired). Paul discusses what Albuquerque residents should hope for on KOB TV Channel 4.

Wally and Paul discuss the policy proposals put forth by the pro-GOP umbrella group Respect New Mexico.

Finally, the Albuquerque Journal over the past week released polling numbers seeming to indicate strong support among New Mexicans for the Gov.’s mask mandate and the policies being implemented by both Gov. Lujan Grisham and ABQ Mayor Tim Keller. As Paul and Wally note, the only poll that matters happens in November.
