Cynthia Borrego thank you goodbye
I am proud of what we have accomplished in the last 4 years, and I appreciate the voters of District 5, including the over 5,000 voters who believed in our vision. Unfortunately, the race did not end up with the results that we wanted. I will always love this City, and I am ready to work any way that I can to tackle the big issues in our City — including public safety, homelessness and infrastructure projects.

First off, I would like to thank my staff — Matthew Gloudemans, Idalia Lechuga Tena, Adeo Branford, Khizar Saleem, Josh Martinez, and Ron Romero. You were amazing, and kept me going! I would also like to thank my incredible team of volunteers who knocked doors every Saturday, put up signs, made calls, and supported me in this race. I appreciate you more than you’ll ever know. This race has never been about me, it’s been about the people of Albuquerque. Together, we’ll finish the infrastructure projects on Paseo, Unser, Westside, Paradise and McMahon Blvds that I started, we’ll strengthen our public safety system, we’ll invest in after-school programs, and we’ll build a better and healthier economy for all of us.

Finally, I’d like to congratulate Dan Lewis on his victory. We both know what it means to run competitive campaigns, and I wish Mr. Lewis the best, and will look forward to working with him to build a better Albuquerque for us all.


Cynthia D. Borrego, MPA
