Albuquerque—“Just because the mayor’s race is over doesn’t mean I stop weighing in on important issues affecting the city. I was a cop for over 30 years before I ran for mayor, I don’t just stop thinking like one because Mr. Berry got re-elected,” stated former Albuquerque mayoral candidate in his first public comment since the election on October 8, 2013.
“Last night I saw coverage on KRQE-13 about a report that addressed current CAO Rob Perry’s activities involving a city worker. I know from reading the city’s own Inspector General’s report that Mr. Perry may have violated state statutes and that a further investigation was warranted. Given Mr. Perry also swung his weight around at Mary Han’s death scene, this is very troubling. Darren White was forced to resign even when the IG found he didn’t do anything wrong, but here Mr. Perry is found to have committed misconduct and there’s no accountability. Why?”
Mr. Heh stated he will be holding a press conference on Friday, October 11, at 2pm at the end of Candelaria NW, west of Rio Grande NW. Asked why he was doing this, Mr. Heh said, “There are two things I want to address. One, I stand by what I've said regarding Mary Han. Even though APD Chief Allen Banks called me before the election and tried to get me to stop talking about things that are relevant to Ms. Han’s incident, some things need to be said and I will say them tomorrow. I also want the public to know that just because the campaign is over doesn’t mean I’m going away. For 25 years I worked to make this community a better place and I’m not about to stop just because I didn’t win an election. I was outspoken about corruption before I ran for mayor, I won’t stop being outspoken now.”
When asked why at this location, Mr. Heh responded, “This is where Mary used to spend a lot of her time running, this is her place.”
