The Eye On Albuquerque would like to offer our best choices for public office. We will give you both sides of the story from our point of view and you can decide how you wish to vote. We want people in office who are “community care takers.” Simply stated, we want people who really care about the community and who will work to protect and preserve our rights. We here at the Eye On Albuquerque wish to make it very clear; any candidate who has ties to the nefarious Darren White or Berry is un-endorsable.
Any doubts on your end? Use our search bar and type in Darren White or Berry. There will be story after story that will serve as proof as to why we will not endorse any candidate who has any ties to these two thugs.
Martin Heinrich is our current District One Congressmen. Heinrich has served the people of District 1 well. We see Heinrich as what we term as a “community care taker.” Notwithstanding, Heinrich whipped former Albuquerque Public Safety Director, Darren White, to the point it was embarrassing for White. Heinrich’s defeat of White is a milestone because the public finally saw White for what he really was and saved us citizen from a huge embarrassment and disappointment. Heinrich has a proven past and it appears like a reliable future. The Eye sees Heinrich becoming our next U.S. Senator.
Hector Balderas appears to be a “great guy,” but we see his problem at this point of trying to reach too high too fast. The Eye sees Mr. Balderas doing great things and reaching high places. For this man; it is only a matter of time.
Heather Wilson is an old “has been” who lives in a pretend world detached from reality. There are several issues that plague Wilson going back in time and to the present. Wilson has had strong ties to the nefarious former Albuquerque Public Safety Director, Darren White. This issue alone has to raise concerns to all of us about honesty and integrity. Wilson also declined to participate in a KOAT-Journal debate with her opponent Sowards. Why? Is she afraid to face reality? Wilson had spent three dollars for every dollar Sowards spent. This will not be a seat that is “up for sale.” Wilson in her politic ads attempts to “scare the hell” out of us in a pitiful attempt to get our votes. The Eye has and will never succumb to cheap shots or pressure. Wilson has already purchased her slot on the Republican ticket; the Eye On Albuquerque does not endorse this candidate for any position.
Greg Sowards is an unknown candidate, Sowards is a Las Cruces businessman. However, Sowards who is basically unknown still commands 20 percent of the popularity. We feel Sowards is a better choice than voting for the Heather Wilson/Darren White ticket. Fresh blood may be the perfect choice!
First Congressional District
Michelle Lujan Grisham appears to be the best choice overall in comparison to the other Democratic candidates. Griego is running a dirty smear campaign against Ms. Lujan Grisham which tells us that Ms. Lujan Grisham MUST be the superior choice.
Eric Griego does not “walk the walk or talk the talk.” In his TV ads, Griego claims he wants to put Wall Street in jail. Yet, he had eleven warrants for his arrest. What was Griego’s plan; to put Wall Street in jail from his jail cell? There are also allegations of DWI? Griego cannot advocate enforcement of the law for others when he has failed to follow the law himself. Is more simple terms, Griego is a hypocrite. Running a dirty campaign is not helping his plight either.
Martin Chavez is another old “has been.” Here we have another hypocrite. Chavez fought avidly against APD and AFD officers participating in the “Rumble in the Rio.” The Rumble in the Rio was a boxing match by public safety officers to raise money to buy under-privileged children bicycles. Yet, Chavez in his TV ads portrays himself as a boxer who can throw a “punch.” Oh yeah, Chavez tried avidly back in the day to keep secrets of domestic violence hidden away…Marty, his dirty politics, and his red light scamera’s have all been voted out by Albuquerque; let’s keep it that way!
Janice Arnold-Jones is running on the Republican ticket unopposed. Ms. Arnold-Jones will have to prove and earn her worth as this election moves forward.
Bernalillo County District Attorney
Jennifer E. Romero offers new approaches and fresh blood in the D.A.’s Office. Romero is well educated and educated in this current century. Her young at heart approach will breathe a much needed new life into the D.A.s Office. It is time for a change; change in the right direction. Romero doesn’t owe anybody and will start with a clean slate. After watching Brandenburg blunders, we here at the Eye On Albuquerque believe Romero is the best choice. Romero will prove herself as a “community care taker.”
Kerri Brandenburg is an old politician who has become a “has been.” It is time for fresh new blood in the D.A.’s Office. You will never see Brandenburg in a courtroom unless it would politically benefit her. Take for instance the Astorga case. Brandenburg was there to politic for office and not to fight for the death penalty. That case could have been better handled by several different D.A.’s in her office who have actually handled cases like this before and have the true expertise. Can anyone say, “Credit Hog?” Brandenburg owes her soul to the devil; that means it’s going to be hell to pay… Brandenburg lists all her education dating back to the 1970’s. She’s out-of-date and should be out of office. Brandenburg is another politician who has strong ties to the nefarious Darren White.
Senate District 18
Lisa Torraco is a highly educated attorney with a vast knowledge base. Torraco is a family woman who we believe has the best interest of District 18 at heart. The Eye On Albuquerque sees Torraco as an up and coming “community care taker.” She will serve us all best in the State Senate.
Gerges Scott may have forgotten about how women are supposed to be treated. There are skeletons in Gerges closet (AKA; Gerges Calderon); take a look at the United States District Court, CIV 99 0139 JC. It does not paint a flattering picture. Why did this candidate fail to disclose this information? We have other proof that he speaks derogatory of women. Guess what? Gerges is being back by the nefarious Darren White and Albuquerque’s CAO Rob Perry. Gerges is clearly a bad choice for any office.
