Richardson as they help Bill Talman kick off his 2011 campaign for the District 4 seat on the Albuquerque City Council. The event takes place on Sunday, May 1st, from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the home of Bill and Becky Tallman, 5909 Canyon Pointe Ct. NE in Albuquerque.

Is he running on public financing? If so, the Open and Ethical Elections Code applies. According to it, May 1 is within the Qualifying Period for City Council Cadidates. So it is legal to raise seed money during this period of up to 10% of the applicable spending limit. May 1 is also when campaigns can start gathering petition signatures and $5 qualifying contributions.
