San Miguel de Allende.- Before one hundred Sanmiguelenses and members of the Ex-pat community, Mayor Mauricio Trejo spoke about the needs and advantages of living in San Miguel.

They discussed issues of security, economic reactivation, mobility in the historic center, water supply, public finances, local talent, and the aquatic lily in the Presa Allende.

Several of the residents, represented by their Rotary president Skip Essick and President-elect Lee Carter, appreciated the approach as municipal president after having previously generated this commitment before the Rotary Club.

In this dialogue convened at a hotel in the city, the municipal president stressed that the people of San Miguel want a positive change in the government and that his administration is focused on generating a better quality of life for its inhabitants and not just surviving in the face of adversities.

The main issue was security, in this regard Trejo Pureco highlighted the “iron hand” so that people’s human rights are respected, as well as the effort to keep the police in San Miguel as the best paid in Guanajuato, with the best life insurance in the country and with a real closeness with society.

He pointed out the support of the State Government, particularly the Secretary of Public Security, Alvar Cabeza de Vaca, as well as the National Guard and the Mexican Army, are lowering crime rates in practically all sectors.

Regarding the economy, he said that his policy has a local impact and is fundamental to reactivate tourism after the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, so that citizens, their organized unions, and not only large transnational corporations benefit.

Another point was the progress in the mobility strategy, mainly in the historic center. Trejo said that the traffic jams are caused by tourist service transport known as “Turibuses” as well as public transport units.

For this problem, he presented a comprehensive plan that allows tourist vehicles to also take walkers to see the attractions offered by this World Heritage city, such as the Atotonilco sanctuary, the Cañada de la Virgen archaeological zone, the Mirador, and other sites.

In addition, he pointed out that the municipality’s proposal is that the “Turibuses” become electric and will seek that the taxes collected by the state be used for this purpose, as well as for the renewal of public transport units.

Another relevant issue for the foreign community is the supply of drinking water, to which Mauricio Trejo exposed the damage to the aquifers due to the excessive exploitation derived from the uncontrolled growth of at least 300 new subdivisions.

Given this situation, the mayor pointed out that the current board of directors of SAPASMA is dedicated full time to resolving the deficit of this vital liquid, the lack of public services such as sanitary and storm drains, and the installation of wastewater treatment plants.
