Anyone who lives in and travels around Albuquerque sees the tents and shopping carts. Unfortunately, voters saw fit to give Tim Keller another four years as Mayor, but City Council MUST do everything in their power not to coddle and “help” the homeless, but to move them off of city property and enforce private property rights.
The “homeless” situation worsens day by day and the fact that this West Side family can no longer walk to school is a simple illustration that the City of Albuquerque is failing to provide even the most basic public services to its residents.
The story asserts that the “homeless” cannot be moved if they are on City property, but we know of no provision in City law that would prohibit their removal. If there is anything in ordinance, Council needs to make changing that top priority and Keller needs to be made to enforce the law.

I couldn’t Agree with You more. I do a Daily Crime Report on a Local Radio Station and the Homeless issues remains High on the List if Topics discussed and Concerns of the Listeners.
Thank You for bringing it to the Forefront. Mayor Keller needs to Address this issue Now instead of Passing the Buck to Solid Waste to take care of. A Perfect Example of Mayor Keller’s indifference to the Issues.
Something needs to be done about this already I feel bad for these people but I’m sick and tired of seeing tents and shopping carts in all of my city’s parks and grass areas it’s unsafe and jus flat out stupid that the city let’s this happen it makes me wanna move to a different city
The homeless situation is deplorable in Albuquerque! And YES! Most definitely the Mayor needs to become aggressively proactive, but don’t hold your breath. Until they move into his neighborhood he most likely won’t do anything. I warned people not to vote for him again! ♀️ I just returned after 3 years in Central California and you don’t see anything like Albuquerque is experiencing. If nothing is done soon there needs to be a recall on the Mayor before the homeless take over the city. That may seem unlikely but drive around and it will become a reality. It’s not just the way it makes the city look, it seriously contributes to the high crime situation Albuquerque is facing. Get to the root of the problem to stop it, not just superficially band-aiding it. Come on Tim, get on the phone and find out what other cities are doing to rectify their homeless situations! I wish I had the answer, but even if I did I’m pretty sure it would Fallon deaf ears. But then, I’m not the one who wanted the Mayor position or getting paid to solve these problems.
