The controversial mayor of Mazatlán, Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres, continues to give what to talk about. The displeasure of the citizens is still not over when they learn that the top that is outside the Cathedral cost the treasury almost 300 thousand pesos, and now it comes to light that “El Químico” paid an almost similar sum to Rigoberta Menchú, Nobel Prize winner de la Paz, to give recognition to this tourist destination, and consider it as a city of peace and inclusiveness, where human rights are respected. Nationally, Mazatlán is the city with the highest number of forced disappearances and the discovery of clandestine graves, as documented and reported by federal deputy Paloma Sánchez. Well, the praise that the municipal president received had a price, and it was paid for with the money of all Mazatlan taxpayers, as if there were no other more important things to solve in Mazatlan.
And speaking of waste of resources, in the public account for the month of July it is reported that the “Chemist” Benítez allocated 250 thousand pesos to finalize the twinning with the city of Parral, Chihuahua, where he attended last month along with his entourage and people from the Institute of Culture, whose travel expenses in a single night amounted to 25 thousand pesos, according to the expenses to be verified by his private secretary, Loar López.
And while the authority municipal is determined to show the beautiful face of this city to visitors, on the other side of the boardwalk there is an abundance of garbage in the streets and the drains dirty the streets. It is only enough to go through the main avenues to discover that something is wrong in the municipal palace, and despite the fact that the mayor has said that he would keep his officials in check if they do not get their act together, it is time that he does not act. The director of the Institute of Culture, José Ángel Tostado, played the slippery yesterday to avoid being interviewed. At 10:00 a.m. he arrived at the Municipal Palace and was approached, but he indicated that he was going to the presidency. “I’ll attend to them when they leave,” he said, but instead of being courteous to the journalists, he went to the Mayor’s Office. After several minutes he went down to the central courtyard of the City Hall to attend the event for the delivery of deeds to families. At the end, reporters approached him, but he spoke defensively. “What are they going to ask me about? If it’s the same, no, ”he expressed. He knew that the questions were about the crisis that has submerged the paramunicipal, but he better kept silent.
who are who are not neither the sun nor the heat are workers from the municipality of Escuinapa, who made a request to the Mayor’s Office to enjoy their vacation period, a request that was said to have been denied, arguing that the Sanitation and Cleansing area of the municipal palace did not could be discovered. In addition to this, there are recurring complaints that they are forced to stay in the room where the cleaning material is kept, which is not in good condition due to the intense heat that has occurred in recent weeks. Meanwhile, the senior official took a vacation period in recent days and her absence is frequently noted in the municipal palace, since she is a worker at the UAS Escuinapa high school.
