To vote or not to vote? It’s like that point in your life when you have to get out of a toxic relationship but it just seems so much easier to stay. Maybe because you don’t think your vote will count, like when you lack the confidence of knowing that you can do better. Change seems hard and settling may feel safer, like when you’re used to your bad relationship and staying is easier than the work of raising your standards, expecting more and moving on.
You can’t do better – You can
You can change him – You can’t
You think he’s cheating on you – He is
You don’t feel like a priority – You’re not
He’ll leave her for you – He won’t
Things will eventually change – They won’t
ABQ’s significant other in Mayor Martin Chavez is up for an unprecedented 4th term, because he petitioned to stay with us. Like the not-so-significant other of your yesteryear who would make grand gestures, or big promises, to stay in the game, but may only come through here and there with a little weekend getaway or a fancy dinner – paltry in comparison to a partner who truly, sincerely stands by you, works to make things better for everyone around them with their selfless deeds, action and follow-through.
Will ABQ. stay with the portly spender, with stars in his eyes, who promises “visions” and grandeur, or will ABQ. collectively grow-up and into an adult relationship with a partner who goes to bat for them. If we’ve been cheated on and lied to, plied with I’m sorries or befuddled with excuses it’s probably time to move on. Kick the cad to the curb, take responsibility for yourself, do what you can do to improve ABQ. starting with a clean slate. You have to look at the facts and the record – ABQ. when it comes to Marty Chavez, He’s Just Not That Into You.
Earn it, be voted it. Say it, own it. Didn’t say it, prove it. As they said back at the plant, “Do what you say, say what you do.”
Last week there was a minor hullabaloo in the local blogosphere and across television & radio airwaves as the incumbent ABQ. Mayor spoke his ~mind and apparently proclaimed himself the most “successful” mayor in the city’s history in a campaign video that was swiftly deleted and rebuked.
Decide for yourself by listening to the audio with 770KKOB Mornings show host Bob Clark as posted here.
And decide which direction you want to take Albuquerque when you cast your vote on Oct. 6.
This obviously doctored compilation of celebrities who’ve spoken out about their political ~thoughts is a simple reminder that these fools are just regular people and the only vote that counts is yours. So I hope all we fools get out and vote on October 6 in the Albuquerque Mayoral Race.
Brace for an onslaught of Paris Chavez smiling face photos at all city sites and sights while doing your mayoral candidate research. You may still register to vote in Bernalillo County – no later than 28 days prior to an election.
p.s. Sorry about the extra ear on ya’ in this photoshop experiment Mr. Ro-Mayor.
Brace yourselves – this “I see you, but you can’t see me” toilet may well be the jumping off point for the sitting Mayor’s campaign (pun intended). Turn that glass around and it’ll be, “You see me, but I can’t see you!” Allll the way through to October.
The omnipresent name and face of Chavez is causing a stir among the declared candidates who thankfully get some play in letting it be known that the surreptitious campaigning (e.g. the spontaneous onslaught of press, appearances, commercials, and city funded portrayals) is not going unnoticed.
An ingenious ad campaign for Route 66 Hotel and Casino includes a television commercial featuring some nonsensical bimbos (as opposed to strategically placed bimbos) driving around the state tossing old fashioned televisions off of buildings, into arroyos, etc.
Beyond the direct conflict with the state’s “Toss No Mas” campaign to prevent litter, the impact on the environment isn’t exactly taken into consideration.
Marty regularly holds Electronic Waste Recycling events to curb the impact of lead and mercury deposits in our landfills. Landfill-shmandfill – a bimbo can just toss your tube.
Not just a catchy little number by Alanis Morissette – Today the race for Mayor of Albuquerque begins. Yet to throw his bolo tie into the ring is our own current Mayor Marty Chavez.
After petitioning to become eligible to run again and being granted the right to do so, he’s so far reserved that right – it seems Marty may have his sights set on a run for Governor or better yet awaiting an appointment in the cabinet of our new President – Don’t hold your breath.
All New Mexicans esp. those of us in ABQ. should be asking ourselves one question today and many, many questions from this day forward. Today’s question: What have you done for me lately Marty?
Taking a cue from the nation which is now mulling over every BM of our Commerce Secretary of Hearts we oughta educate ourselves as to who this elected official is, has been and will be. Who elected him? Did you? Will you again?
Here are two bits o’ news on Mayor Marty as of late: Have YOU been pinched by Marty’s pet red light cameras? Well, Marty was popped for speeding late last month. Not to be overshadowed by the glaring mess of a gang registry that Marty signed into law nearly two years ago that sits astonishingly EMPTY, for lack of enforcement.
The web is such a beautiful thing to waste. I hope you too can use it to uncover, investigate, and verify as much useful info. on Marty, Alanis and other people whose hands reach for your bank account and/or are responsible for your safety and leadership.
