Trejo’s first government report
By Antonio De Jesús Aguado
On October 10, 2012, Mauricio Trejo began his three-year term as mayor, and a year later he gave his first government report.
On September 20, 2013, before the Guanajuato governor, legislators and sanmiguelenses, Mauricio Trejo presented his first annual report, in which he highlighted his government’s major accomplishments. Trejo told Atención that after one year he is pleased with the work he has done.
He also acknowledged that the administration has made mistakes and had successes, but in this second year they will try to improve upon the successes and commit fewer errors. Trejo remarked that after 2015 he wants to be remembered as a hard-working mayor, an honest person who did not steal public resources, a mayor who united the productive sector and as a firm mayor.
In his report, Trejo said that his administration started with a deficit of 30 million pesos, but thanks to the support of the federal and state governments it moved forward. He reported that in his first year of work the administration constructed 18 artificial dams for collecting rainwater in rural communities. He highlighted the construction of 6.5 kilometers of drainage networks as well as the
construction of 32 kilometers of roads. The administration also handed out (during the winter) more than 40,000 sweaters and blankets to people with low incomes.
According to Trejo, the largerscale projects that are still in progress, such as the center for retirees, the aerodrome, the convention center (which will be inaugurated soon) and the wine tourism project, will improve the economy of the city. Trejo reported that they already have 180 of the 200 needed hectares for the construction of the industrial park (which will be eco-friendly and will
not affect the urban image of the city), which will create 3,000 jobs.
Trejo urged Governor Márquez to create a trusteeship along with the municipality in order to start the construction of that project in the first trimester of 2014.
The mayor also remarked that during this administration more events that attract tourists have taken place in the city, and they have generated gross revenue of more than 190 million pesos.
He concluded by saying that in November he will travel to New York, where he will receive a recognition from the Condé Nast organization, which has named San Miguel as the number-one travel destination in the world.
