Mayor Berry immediately set upon, after Ray Schultz’s announcement of being given the boot, that he would have a “national search” conducted by an out-of-state firm. The cost is estimated to be around 35k to 50k. Why would a mayor send 50k out-of-state when we have people here who need work and a job? Helping out a friend somewhere? You are sitting there saying to yourself; “Why is the Eye On Albuquerque saying such a mean thing like this?”
Here is the answer, Berry is lying and we see through his lies. You see, Mr. Perry told the neighborhood association presidents that a California firm was already hired to find a new chief…Oddly enough, guess where Berry was at before he was mayor? You guessed it; he was in California with his construction company (really nice of Berry to give jobs and business to the folks in California). The question is why? Here is the rest of the puzzle.
Berry promoted two new deputy chiefs at APD. With these two slots filled and the national search locates a new chief of police; where will Allen Banks go? He will no longer be interim chief; his former position as a deputy chief has now been filled; Where-Oh-Where is Mr. Banks going to go? Here are the answer folks; Berry wants to “lock-in” the black and other minority vote. This is all a political move. The proof is replacing Banks’ former position. What makes this news even more discerning neither Roseman or Garcia has a stellar record. Both have been plagued with problems throughout their careers. These are just a few more of Ray Ray’s boys.
Meanwhile, Berry gave one of his friends in California thousands of dollars to do a search that is frivolous because Berry wanted Banks there to help his political career. Banks is the fruit of the poisonous tree; RAYMOND DANIEL SCHULTZ. Schultz and anyone he mentored or part of his administration must be cut away like a cancerous tumor. Both Eric Garcia and William Roseman are part of that cancerous tumor. That is the cold hard facts.
Could it be that Banks has been promised some other big dollar position in exchange for his help since his prior position has been filled? Banks should know, “When you agree to dance with the devil; you’re going to owe your soul.”In the end Berry as with any snake will simply be forced to slip, slide and away…Maybe Berry, Perry and Schultz can share an assisted living apartment?
