About District 2

The new District 2 was formed as a result of Albuquerque's redistricting in 2011 which combined the majority of old District 3 (that Ike Benton represented) with the North Valley’s old District 2. Today, District 2 stretches from the North Valley through Downtown to Barelas, and east to the South Broadway, San Jose, Kirtland, and UNM neighborhoods. With nearly all the city’s federally-designated “pockets of poverty” and its oldest infrastructure, the needs of District 2 are complex and challenging.
