Education was the top issue for many voters who went to the polls in the first consolidated election of its kind in Bernalillo County on Tuesday.
“As a native New Mexican, I’m tired of being in the bottom percentile for education. I feel like there needs to be some massive revamping,” Reginald Johnson said before he walked into the voting center on Wyoming Boulevard in the Northeast Heights. “… I saw a lot of potential in young people. If we don’t take advantage of the young people, their minds, the ideas they are capable of having, then we’re going to squander all of their talent.”
