  ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller's administration will focus on public safety, children's issues, addressing homelessness and creating jobs during the 2019 New Mexico legislation session.

The Albuquerque Journal reports Keller on Monday released his administration's legislative priorities. He says his administration is setting its sights on "tangible projects that can make a real difference in our communities."

Keller says he wants improved radio technology for better coordination between all emergency service providers in the city and the surrounding area.

He also wants to build two centrally located shelter facilities with onsite supportive services to help with the city's homelessness issue.

Keller says he wants more support for pre-K programs and two new child development centers.
