ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The City of Albuquerque is looking to honor the late City Councilor Ken Sanchez by naming a fire station after him.

Sanchez served Albuquerque’s West Side on the city council for 14 years before passing away on New Year’s Day following a medical episode. Now, two city councilors are introducing a resolution to name the fire station off Central and 57th the Ken Sanchez Fire Station 7.
