If you live, work, or even visit Albuquerque on a regular basis you are likely familiar with the “Twin Towers” on Louisiana across from the ABQ Uptown shopping development.
These are some of the most spacious facilities throughout New Mexico, but they are not enough to contain the administrative bloat of APS. The District is close to opening a brand new $22 million “training” facility. This facility will NOT be open to students and will not benefit them directly in any way. Yet, voters are being asked to vote for a 19% property tax hike this February. That tax hike would be used to fund even more building by the school district.
APS needs to live within its means. Voters regularly approve bond measures offered by the district and district property tax collections have continued to increase. There is no need for a tax hike.
