ALBUQUERQUE — The Albuquerque police union has voted "no confidence" in Public Safety Director Darren White, making it the second such vote in the lawman's career.
The daylong voting resulted in 84 percent of votes against White, union president Joey Sigala said. More than half of the union's approximate 1,100 members voted, the biggest turnout in a long time, Sigala said.
White refused to comment on the vote Thursday, though Albuquerque Mayor Richard J. Berry weighed in, saying he still has confidence in White.
