City councilor introduces bills addressing inequality

Politics - Government

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – City Councilor Klarissa Peña is introducing a series of bills at Monday’s city council meeting she says will address inequality. One measure would be to establish a community policing council that would be supported by a civilian agency, instead of the Albuquerque Police Department.

Another bill would direct the city to explore options for changing the appointment process for city boards and commissions, promoting diversity among their ranks. She says she will also seek to finalize a committee’s decision and seek community input on what will replace the Juan de Oñate statue in Old Town. The city councilor will propose two other bills she hopes will tackle inequality in Albuquerque.
