According to the voters; Albuquerque is in the best condition it has ever been. The overwhelming amount of voters who actually voted made this statement very clear. According to those voters, Berry has and will continue to make things better. Everything from our realistic 14.1% unemployment rate to Berry's admirable control of the Albuquerque Journal, KOB TV Channel 4, KOAT TV Channel 7 and KRQE TV Channel 13.
We must all believe in the 11% or so who have voted the fate of our entire city. We must all believe that slain Civil Rights Attorney, May Han's, Murder was an accidental suicide. That although Ms. Han's 100 pound body contained enough carbon monoxide to kill a 300 pound man and her high dollar BMW was equipped with a sensor that AUTOMATICALLY SHUTS the car off when it detects carbon monoxide; was just a "suicide." Berry will make it better.
We must believe that now interim Chief of Police, Allen Banks, is a wonder guy even though we have all heard the recordings of him lying under oath to big dollar attorney Samuel Bregman. We must all believe Allen Banks did not desecrate Mary Han by taking pictures of her dead corps and texting them to vacationing Chief of Police, Raymundo Shultz. We must believe that then City Attorney Rob Perry, Former PSD, the Nefarious Darren White, Fired employee and rehired the same day employee, Tj Wilham, DCOP Paul Feist, DCOP Beth Paiz and a host of others who trampled through the murder scene of Ms. Han were all justified in their actions. We know from past experiences and experiences since then, this was a "one time thing" and it was perfectly fine to do.
Berry will make it better.
We must believe Rob Perry is a great guy and his huge salary is justified because of all the suits Perry has won. After all, the city has only paid out $55,000,000.00 in liability. Remember we could be paying out $100,000,000.00. Perry did not really lose $55,000,000.00; he saved the city $45,000,000.00. And to think "MayBerry" thought "they" got a real deal when they were able to get "Odis." Of course this is not MayBerry... Berry will make it better.
We must all believe the Ken Ellis Jr. jury award of over $10,000,000.00 after a trial of community peers is wrong and the jury award was wrong. Berry will make it better.
We must believe the Department of Justice wasted tax payer's money doing a frivolous investigation into police involved shootings. Damn DOJ, always starting investigations and taking over police departments across the nation for nothing. Berry will make it better.
We must thank Mr. Berry for keeping the APD intact instead of privatizing it. After-all; Saturday night there was still two police units to cover the entire Southeast area command of Albuquerque on graveyard. And we must all believe Berry will get us all the protection we will ever need; if we need it. Remember according to Berry crime is down since he took the helm. Berry will make it better.
Since crime is so low now with Berry perhaps we should do a RIF and cut APD down to match the SUPER low crime rate that Berry lauds himself over? Or is that what has happened? Perhaps, we should eliminate APD altogether and let other local law enforcement agencies handle things. Between BCSO and NMSP they could easily handle the super low crime rate (at least according to Berry). Do not think of the city as being short three hundred police officers as a bad thing but as a good thing. Think about all the money Berry is saving and now has available to use in "ABQ THE PLAN." One more thing to remember; three hundred police officers short and Berry is still providing all this WITHOUT a cut in service! Berry will make it better.
We must believe the animals left in hallways that have been put to die is a good thing. Disregard they were left there to die alone, humiliated, urinated and for the public to view is a good idea and is the fair way of conducting things at the "Speed of Business."
Berry will make it better.
We must believe Berry knows more about what we need than we do. He will bring in the bull dozers and the concrete trucks and make the Albuquerque Bosque a dreamland that Martha's Vineyards will blush at the thought of. Yes, the votes blew that one by voting down Berry's Boutique projects. The good news is Berry knows better than you and he will still get them done; with your vote or without your vote! Berry will make it better.
We must believe that all the closed storefronts in Albuquerque is for esthetic reasons and not because our economy is in the toilet and there are no jobs. Berry will make it better.
We must believe being at the top of every BAD LIST is a good thing! Why? Because positive Berry through his magnificent leadershit has placed us at the TOP of every list even if it's the top of all the bad lists. Berry will make it better.
We must believe that having enough money can buy any election. Berry raised around $900,000.00 which means Berry spent about $20.00 per vote received compared to Mr. Dinelli whose average cost per vote was around $18.00 per vote and Mr. Heh's average cost was $3.00 per vote. You can clearly see who the winner was in this race. It would have been cheaper to give $10.00 checks out to voters who went out to vote for Berry. Perhaps money can buy anything... Berry will make it better.
Our apologies for being so enthusiastic and euphoric but Berry is Mister Wonderful! We hope Albuquerque Voters and politicians who placed Berry back into office get their "Just Dessert." Berry will make it better.
We want to close this story with a parable as we move towards the next four years of "Berry will make it better."
There once was a trusting man walking along a path that was covered with snow on a very windy and cold day. The trusting man happened upon a snake that laid across his path. The snake made a special request of the trusting man. The snake respectfully pled to the trusting man, "please, please mister; I am cold and almost frozen, pick me up and put me in your jacket so that I may warm myself?" The man promptly replied, "Oh, NO! You are a snake and you will bite me!" The snake lying cold and shivering repeated his plea and reassured the trusting man that he would NOT bite him.
The trusting man picked up the snake and placed him inside his warm jacket. As the man continued down the path, the snake started to move around and became warm and snuggled against the trusting man's body. All of a sudden; the snake bit the trusting man. The trusting man fell to his knees and eventually was lying in the snow; cold, bewildered and perishing.
The trusting man asked the snake with his dying breath; "You were cold and dying; I trusted you and you asked me to help you and I did...why did you bite me?" The snake replied, "YOU KNEW WHAT I WAS WHEN YOU PICKED ME UP!"
So for those 11% of Albuquerque voters and politicians whom placed Berry back into office; keep stuffing your pockets with snakes...Let us know how that's working for you... Because, Berry will make it better.
