Ex-Newsman The New PR Person At APD

The Albuquerque Police Department has a new spokesperson as Mayor Tim Keller's administration continues to reshape things at City Hall.

Longtime newsman and PR pro Gilbert Gallegos started on Monday as APD's director of communications and community outreach.

He replaces Celina Espinoza, the PR lady who lied to the public about the Victoria Martens murder case.

Gallegos spent many years as a reporter at The Albuquerque Tribune, the city's now-defunct afternoon newspaper. Then he was a top aide to Gov. Bill Richardson, and then a spokesman for Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham.

Expect Gallegos to bring to APD the values of a real newsman: openness, integrity, timeliness and honesty.

Espinoza bailed from her $74,000-a-year city job on Nov. 13, the day before Keller won a landslide victory over Dan Lewis in the mayoral race.(See story posted below).

Independent Journalism

I've been a reporter, writer and editor for 37 years. I'm dedicated to honest, fair and hard-hitting reporting. I'm not conservative or liberal, but am just a reporter who tries to get to the truth at any given point in time. I don't believe in pulling punches or being a lap dog because that serves no one. A free and aggressive press is essential to human liberty. That's why the Founding Fathers put a free press in the Constitution. So on this site you'll get a variety of news, fearless opinion, analysis, humor, satire and commentary. It's kind of like a free-for-all. My motto is "Without fear and without favor."  But good journalism takes time and money, so I hope you will contribute what you can to these efforts by clicking on the "Donate" button above. I could use your help. Thanks, Dennis Domrzalski.
