Mayor, Larry P. Abraham

Mayor Larry P. Abraham

I feel very honored and privileged to serve as the Mayor of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque. We have, without question, one of the nicest villages in New Mexico. Nestled between the City of Albuquerque and Rio Rancho, our Village is unique in maintaining its pristine rural atmosphere. The Rio Grande Boulevard and Guadalupe Trail corridors are treasures that must be preserved, not only for our Village, but also for the State of New Mexico. The Village of Los Ranchos is the 33 rd largest municipality in the State. We are larger in population than Taos, three times larger than Moriarty or Edgewood, and eleven times larger than Chama!

In order to maintain our identity and independence, I feel we must create the perception that there is value not only in our name, but also in doing business within the Village. During my term as Mayor, I will work hard to create and maintain an identifiable image for the Village. I will ask all residents and businesses to join me in using the full name 'Los Ranchos de Albuquerque' as often as possible, including in addresses, on business stationery and cards, and in all advertising.

I assure you all that my administration will have in place a fiscally responsible budget, and will always use public funds wisely and efficiently. I will maintain an open line of communication to ALL residents. We have created the monthly Village Vision to keep our residents informed, while promoting the Village's restaurants and businesses. We will continue to keep our web site as current as possible with agendas for future meetings, as well as minutes of previous meetings. We will maintain a calendar current for all upcoming events.

My administration will try at all times to uphold the spirit and integrity of the 2020 Master Plan. As a businessman, I would like to increase the recurring monthly gross receipts from our Village businesses, and decrease our dependence on new construction gross receipts. I will work hard at stimulating the economy within the Village, and to that end, I am urging the reformation of the Los Ranchos de Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce. I encourage all our Village businesses, including our many home occupation licensees, to take an interest in and join the Chamber. It will provide many advantages for all its members, and will help spread the word that Los Ranchos de Albuquerque is a great place to do business.
