About Debbie

Debbie O'Malley brings over twenty years of strong, effective public service to the Bernalillo County Commission--first as a neighborhood leader, championing the revitalization of her working-class Hispanic community, to nine years as a City Councilor, focusing on workforce housing, neighborhood planning and redevelopment. 

As founder and first executive director of the Sawmill Community Land Trust, Debbie spear-headed the planning and development of Arbolera de Vida, a multi-million dollar, award-winning, nationally acclaimed redevelopment project in the Sawmill/Old Town neighborhood.

She has served as City Council President and is currently the Chair of the Bernalillo County Commission.  An Albuquerque native, she has lived the economic challenges facing working families.

With her husband of 40 years, Mike, she has raised two bright, caring and responsible daughters and is the very proud grandparent of two wonderful little boys and a beautiful little girl.
