Tim Endorsed by AFSCME City Workers!
Thank you to AFSCME Council 18, which represents about 2,000 City of Albuquerque employees and an additional 3,000 workers who live in the city.
“Blue Collar workers ensure that our city parks are clean and safe for our children, that our city busses are running on time, and that our streets are clean. Our members work hard every single day to make our city beautiful and improve the quality of life for all of us. We are honored to endorse Tim Keller for mayor because he shares that same vision and will work hard to make all of us proud to live here,” said Casey Padilla, President of AFSCME Council 18 and Local 624.

Update from NM’s Nasty Women
In June Nasty Women NM hosted a forum where they were able to hear from each individual candidate. In doing so this group of women was able to hear what Tim stands for and his vision for Albuquerque.
On July 13th Tim officially received their endorsement. They share Tim’s vision for a “more inclusive, economically, just and environmentally sustainable city.”
