As the city settles in the shadow of the mayoral election, RJ's paper, the Albuquerque Journal, continues with their self congratulatory articles as to why and how RJ won reelection. The paper promotes RJ's success to the challenger's poor efforts to RJ's likability. Of course absent from any discussion is facts or any real meat regarding his endless failures. The paper endlessly bloviates aboute RJ this and RJ that in how he won. Or more interesting and objective review would've analyzed how RJ was not beaten and how RJ could not lose given the paper's endless fawning over RJ
Finally, out from the shadows comes RJ's political adviser: Jason McCleskey. Of the election, Jason says, "We made a concerted effort to reach out to voters who had not supported Republican candidates in the 2012 election, particularly Hispanics and women. Mayor Berry had a very compelling message that resonated across the board.”
Compelling? We at the Eye know what's compelling. What's compelling is how RJ has such a cozy relationship with people who have documented records of breaking laws and rules. So, while Jason enjoys the $250,000+ paid to him by RJ thanks to the many donors who we've listed. Here's a little hint of Jason's history...and his true nature.Jay McCleskey Jay mclesky
