Berry Spars with Brandenburg
During a recent media event Kari Brandenburg stated what she believes the condition of Albuquerque is in. Mayor Berry came back sharply at Brandenburg dismissing her statement and proclaiming the City of Albuquerque will continue to be grossly mismanaged while it is under his control.
Bernalillo County District Attorney, Kari Brandenburg, stated during a recent media release, “we are in a crisis that I’m not sure we will recover from; if we do, in my life time…” Finally, a local public official admits what we have been saying for a great deal of time. In response to Ms. Brandenburg statement, Mayor Berry stated, “I’m not gonna read anything in between the lines on somebody else’s comments; we’ll just do what we’ve always done!” To summarize what Berry stated: City leadership, or lack thereof, will continue screwing everything up as it has done in the past.
Here we are again, Berry making a fool of himself publicly. When a popular DA states the City is in crisis even a fool should take that statement seriously. But not our fool; he dismisses the statement and makes a childish rebuttal. Perhaps the DA’s statement is a “red flag” or a warning to the mayor and the city? Berry’s statement, “we’ll just do what we’ve always done!” The mayor’s performance as a top manager has been nothing short of a travesty for the City and APD. Now the mayor proclaims and reaffirms he will continue down the same destructive path he has set for the City and APD.
Here is a final thought with all sarcasm aside; Mayor Berry needs to heed to the signs he has been given and take immediate corrective action. This is a sobering wakeup call for the Berry administration. Brandenburg’s words were not soft or gentle but were true. Get off the highway to hell. Take the high road Mayor Berry, be a gentlemen and thank Brandenburg for her honesty and move forward with the business of caring for the citizens of Albuquerque.
