"It was truly a village kind of relationship where friends and neighbors looked after each other," said former Albuquerque chief operating officer Diana Dorn-Jones, who grew up in the South Broadway area.
Rep. Jane Powdrell-Culbert, Bailey and Dorn-Jones also grew up in the South Broadway area in the 1950s and 1960s. Dorn-Jones was stunned when she saw the affluent Baldwin Hills black neighborhood in Los Angeles. "I'd never seen so many black people in their own concentrations - well-to-do professionals. I was like, this is unbelievable, why didn't I get here sooner," she said. Although they read about racial unrest and saw it on TV during the 1960s, the Powdrells and Dorn-Jones said they felt sheltered in Albuquerque.

â€œI think you do make wiser decisions as you get older, although there are exceptions,â€� said Diana Dorn-Jones of United South Broadway Corp., a nonprofit community organization in Albuquerque that provides financial and mortgage counseling.
A joint University of Texas and Texas A&M research study, â€œWith Age Comes Wisdom: Decision-Making in Younger and Older Adults,â€� analyzed why older people make better decisions and basically found that their decision-making experience makes them better at weighing risks and rewards. The rise in credit scores with age also sheds light on the evolving relationship that the average consumer has with debt throughout his or her life, Dorn-Jones said. Regular checks are particularly important in New Mexico because there are so many common surnames, which increases the potential for information on someone with a similar name being posted to your account, Dorn-Jones said.
Describing the collapse as a "massive servicing mess," task force chair Diana Dorn-Jones, executive director of the United South Broadway Corp., said Wall Street banks service 70 percent of the outstanding mortgages in New Mexico and regularly fail to communicate in good faith with homeowners.
"They are losing paperwork, mis-posting payments and failing to provide a single point of contact for a homeowner to negotiate with," she said in an email. "The problem is urgent, as we expect foreclosures to spike in the coming year, due to re-sets on home equity loans and a high inventory of underwater properties, which homeowners can't sell when they can no longer afford them," Dorn-Jones said in her email.
