Councilor avoids motion to censure over Native holiday


ALBUQUERQUE — An apology by Albuquerque City Council President Rey Garduño on Monday ended days of infighting over how an Indigenous Peoples’ Day proclamation was handled. A councilor who had intended to request a vote to censure Garduño revoked the motion.

Garduño’s apology for public comments that were critical of three members who did not sign the proclamation came during a City Council meeting in which the agenda said he would also propose a measure that goes further in ensuring the second Monday of October each year is recognized as Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
