The Eye On Albuquerque ran a poll. The Eye Poll asked, “Darren White has claimed the City is $66 million in the red. Berry made a promise to eliminate the un-needed Public Safety Director’s position. Do you think Berry should eliminate the Public Safety Director position and all Public Information Officers?” Recently White has recanted and now claims that the red ink is $40 million dollars. Maybe it was just a little “White’ lie” or maybe White misspoke again.
Although, our Eye Poll is unscientific, the results clearly show by a 90% margin that Mayor Berry should eliminate the position of public safety director and all public information officers positions throughout the City. Below are the results:
333 (90%) Yes, I agree
27 (7%) No, I disagree
7 (1%) I have no opinion
A total of 369 people participated in our poll.
Do the citizens of Albuquerque even have a City Council? By the way this city is being run by the fascism style; it does look like we do. Our elected City Council has forgotten that they were elected to represent the citizen and the citizens’ best interest, not just sit back and collect a check.
Unscientific or not, this is the voting public speaking. It may behoove Mayor Berry to heed to this public opinion. What the Eye means by “heed” is eliminate the positions. Do not try and fool the public and transfer them to positions such as “Special Projects Coordinators.”
The Piercing Truth
This is right from the dictionary and seems to describe Albuquerque, Berry and Schultz. Fascism (f ash ,izem) noun An authoritarian right wing system of government and/or social organization. (in general use) extreme right wing, authoritarian, chauvinistic and/or intolerant views or practices. Fascism tends to include a belief in the supremacy of one group over another, national, ethnic, especially social strata or monetarily; a contempt for democracy, an insistence on obedience to a powerful leader, and a strong demagogic approach.
