No Government Job for Mayor Richard J. Berry

This petition had 326 supporters

Albuquerque Republican Mayor Richard J. Berry wants to stay in public office. Berry wants to run for Governor in 2018.  A new mayor will be sworn in December 1, 2017.  Republican Governor Susana Martinez can appoint Berry to a government job until the 2018 election.  Rumors are this may be general manager of the New Mexico State Fair.  

During his tenure as Mayor (2009-2017), Berry has destroyed Central Avenue - Route 66, pushed Albuquerque to national #1 for stolen cars, national #5 for violent crime.  Berry has allowed the police force to drop by 25%, he has reduced employee morale, let Route 66 rot from his ill-conceived A.R.T. project, shuffled money back and forth to his developer cronies.  Berry wants Albuquerque rezoned to eliminate neighborhood rights, allow uncontrolled construction, increase alcohol sales and "adult entertainment".  Berry wants to charge citizens more to live in Albuquerque.

Berry should not be rewarded with more political work after his term as mayor ends November 30, 2017.  NM Governor Susana Martinez should not appoint Berry to any political position.  Come December 1, 2017 Mayor Berry needs to go into political obscurity never to be heard from again.
