Although conservative New Mexicans secured many victories in the 2021 municipal elections, including our state’s mayorships, city council seats, school board positions, and other local offices, the work is not yet done.
Two conservatives, Reneé Grout (District 9) and Lori Robertson (District 7), are vying for positions on the Albuquerque City Council after they both got just shy of the 50% threshold in the November 2 elections.
Grout faces off against far-leftist Robert C. Grilley, Jr, who has the endorsements of Sen. Martin Heinrich, abortion up-to-birth group Planned Parenthood Votes New Mexico, the eco-Marxist group the Sierra Club, pro-illegal alien group Dreams in Action, among far-left legislators.
Robertson faces off against another leftist, Tammy Fiebelkorn, who has the endorsements of billionaire Mike Bloomberg’s gun-grabbing group Moms Demand Action, the Sierra Club, as well as far-left former city leaders.
If these two candidates win the runoff election, the Albuquerque City Council will shift power from a leftist majority to a conservative majority — putting a huge barrier on Tim Keller’s apparent unchecked power with the current makeup of the Council. This election is a critical one, especially since the fate of New Mexico’s largest city hangs in the balance with this runoff election.
In the past, far-left Albuquerque city councilors have attempted overreaching gun bans, eco-leftist proposals, plastic bag and straw bans, and “demilitarization” of the police: code for defunding the police and leaving them defenseless against the enemy. More of this extremism will creep into the Albuquerque City Council if Grout and Robertson do not win on November 7.
