Mayor Marty’s Budget Exerts Fiscal Restraint

In case you missed it, I had an opinion piece in the Albuquerque Journal on Friday in support of Albuquerque Mayor Marty Chavez’s fiscally-restrained 2009 budget. While we have been critical of some of the Mayor’s priorities in the past, his willingness to cut spending and move forward with modest tax relief is welcome.
Albuquerque’s fiscal restraint is particularly striking when compared with the rapid growth of spending at the state level. Check out Albuquerque’s proposed budget here.
