THE LEADER WE NEED IN TIME OF CRISIS

Over the last eight years Mayor Berry and city leaders have let Albuquerque slip too far behind. We need a new kind of leader to bring us out of skyrocketing crime and a lack of well-paying career opportunities. Tim knows that after years of city hall making excuses and blaming others, it is time we had a mayor step up and own these challenges. Tim Keller is a bold leader who will not wait to tackle our toughest problems. As our State Auditor and a State Senator, Tim has demonstrated the skills and courage to actually get things done. Tim knows it’s the mayor’s job to bring a new vision that makes Albuquerque a safe, inclusive and innovative city that we can believe in again.

STANDING UP TO POWERFUL INTERESTS FOR YOU 

With our city at a critical crossroads, we need a proven leader who isn’t afraid to fight the status quo to actually get things done.
