Baca Declares Victory
By Carolene Langie
The Associated Press

Jim Baca declared victory Tuesday night in the seven-way race to become
Albuquerque mayor. Baca was leading with 30 percent of the vote after 76
percent of the precincts reported totals. "I think people are ready for the
message that we should keep the city livable and safe," he said. Baca was
the only candidate who promised not to put a road through the Petroglyph
National Monument to ease traffic on the city's West Side. "Some people saw
this as a symbol for good managed growth and sensible growth," he said.
