RGF president talks ABQ City budget w/ KOAT TV

Albuquerque City Council recently adopted a $1.4 billion budget. Unfortunately, as RGF’s President tells KOAT Channel 7 in this interview, the budget is “status quo.” Nothing in it indicates that public safety and hiring more police officers is a top priority. You can see the story including Gessing’s comments here.

Gessing also told KOAT TV (not included) that the City has enough resources to spend on Zero Bus Fares and a new “free” ride share program. It should instead spend those to hire police officers and boost public safety.
