NM Tech Council Deborah Breitfeld CEO – Albuquerque Business First

The New Mexico Technology Council, an organization working to promote the growth of the state’s tech industry, has hired Deborah Breitfeld to be its new executive director, according to a press release Friday afternoon.

The Latest: Hundreds of Aztec students gather for ‘walk-up’

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – The Latest on the nationwide student walkout in New Mexico: (all times local):

11:35 a.m.

Hundreds of students at a New Mexico high school still reeling from a deadly shooting in December gathered Wednesday to remember the 21 students who have died in school shootings across the U.S. in recent months, including two of their own.

Student leaders at Aztec High School had asked administrators for time to “walk up” rather than walk out. Many students donned the school colors and one held a sign that read “Time for Change.”

Jesse Smith was among the crowd. The 17-year-old senior said the event was not about protesting for gun safety but rather for honoring the students who have died and setting the stage for what he called a positive movement.

Part of that movement at A...

Commercial property managers dealing with problems caused by homelessness

Kai Porter

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Property managers at Commercial Real Estate Management in Albuquerque say the homeless problem in the city is hurting their businesses.

They have pictures showing human feces, urine and used drug needles recently found on one of their 36 properties around town.

"A lot of times they will come to work to open up their store, and a homeless person is laying there in front of their store," said Amy Flores, the firm’s president.

Flores said homeless people and vagrants are leaving behind a big mess they’re forced to clean up for their tenants.

"They’ve also over the last couple two or three years been really demanding more and more security, which is pretty costly to the property owner, which is then passed through to the tenants," she said.

“He had all the paperwork. He seemed to know a lot about the house. He seemed like a decent guy,” said Kerns.

However, Sims is not a decent guy...
