Our Eyes now tell us Mr. Berry appears to be washing his hands, for good, from his days as a contractor. You see his own company R.J. Berry Enterprises, Inc. has now folded and no longer holds a valid status with the State's Corporation Commission. With the company's certification in suspended status he may not legally operate the company. Not that this seems to matter for the mayor who has a healthy income from his position as Mayor, a city issued car, and his endless lack of accountability to the citizens for what can only be described as a failed administration. From public safety to employment everything is at the top of the list for worst job performance and effort. Remember folks, since Berry came into power, Albuquerque now holds the Nation’s record for the MOST JOBS to leave a city in one year.
We wonder, if Mr. Berry is indeed going to take ownership of the mess he created in Albuquerque, why all the delay in declaring his candidacy? Does he want to be last at the table? What advantages does he see in this? Mr. Berry, you are, at least in title, the Mayor of the largest city in the state and a metropolitan area that covers almost half of the state's population. Assert your leadership (or is CAO Perry giving you campaign advise...be careful Mr. Mayor, Mr. Perry has never won an election) Mr. Berry, or perhaps do the honorable thing and step aside and take responsibility for your failures! Allow a true leader with real leadership to take over and clean up the disasters you have created. You really owe the citizens of Albuquerque at least that much.
