Beyond the amount spent, the really shameful thing is that Mayor Luis Guillermo Benítez paid to receive the recognition of Mazatlán as a Destination Guarantor of Peace, Human Rights and Inclusion. The note was that it cost the City Council more than 280 thousand pesos for the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Rigoberta Menchú, to deliver the award to Chemist Benítez, a pity that everything won is lost because it ended in a montage.
The visit of a Nobel Peace Prize winner is definitely positive, but the Government of Mazatlan literally bought the recognition she received. The first expense was for the payment to the Menchú Tum Association, Towards a Culture of Peace AC, later came two more payments for transfers and travel expenses.
The information from Transparency that went viral reveals that the recognition of Mazatlan as a Destination Guarantor of Peace, Human Rights and Inclusion came to the public treasury for 280 thousand pesos. It seems that the philosophy is that millions are spent on LED lamps that are not installed, that a prize is not bought at a “good price”, that is the way things are.
In contrast, something that could be presumed for these summer vacations is that Sinaloa appears in third national place among the best states to sunbathe on beaches in Mexico. Only below Quintana Roo and Baja California Sur, as revealed by Consulta Mitofsky.
In Mazatlan a mayor is needed, the complaint is coming before the State Prosecutor’s Office for the millionaire purchase of LED lamps, the big question is whether it will proceed and they will let it advance. Without a doubt, there must be several very uncomfortable officials and others from the past six-year term as well, so be very attentive.
SINALOA. Yesterday, the State Congress began the vacation period that will last until August 12, so during this time they are considered non-business days. Work will resume on Monday, August 15.
Last Sunday, the deputies closed their second period of sessions with what concludes the first year of exercise, the Permanent Deputation that will be chaired by the Morenista Ambrocio Chávez was also integrated, the PRI member Feliciano Valle will be the secretary, while the members are : César Ismael Guerrero, Verónica Guadalupe Bátiz, Juana Minerva Vázquez, Rosario Guadalupe Sarabia, Deysi Judith Ayala, Viridiana Camacho and María del Rosario Osuna.
The Permanent Deputation was very weak, apparently it is only being processed, everything indicates that there will be nothing relevant during this period, the good will come in the plenary sessions and the agenda for the start of the second year of exercise, so stay tuned and for now there are vacations in the Congress of Sinaloa.
OUTSTANDING. That from August 1 to 15 they will be registering older adults who turn 65, so that they are beneficiaries of the Welfare pension, announced the delegate of Development Programs, Omar López Campos.
Continuing with the superdelegate, last weekend they received more than 18,000 Pfizer vaccines against covid-19 and another 24,000 pediatric doses that will be applied to children and adolescents. It must be said that the position fit Omar López like a glove, everything continues at a good pace in the Social Programs delegation in the state.
DIARY. Yesterday afternoon the delegate in Sinaloa de Morena would present the results of the election to councilors last Sunday, due to time constraints we could not wait for the complete information, tomorrow we will make a detailed analysis of who the winners were and who is shaping up for the party presidency.
