A Christmas Message

By Jesús Aguado

The Atención spoke with Mayor Ricardo Villarreal, who wished happy holidays to Sanmiguelenses and their families. He assured them not to worry about 2018, because “it will be a good year for San Miguel.”

Villarreal assured us that his administration would close this year with lots of happiness, because the city has had dynamic and important growth, which he attributed to the almost 50 percent increase in tourism. The number of visitors per year has gone from 1.5 to 2.3 million, generating increased revenue and employment.

Villarreal cited figures from the Mexican Institute of Social Security, stating that employment has grown 25 percent in San Miguel, thanks to public and private investment in construction, the opening of new businesses, and the arrival of new companies to the industrial zone.

Currently, there are 400 public works projects in San Miguel. “Because we are doing more with less money, we will keep reducing the needs of the city government,” said Mayor Villarreal. He also cited the government’s commitment to improve 200 public schools, “because we want better education for a better future.” He thanked the parents who have helped to make those improvements possible.

The year 2018 will be an important electoral year due to the elections at federal, state and local level. Villarreal said he is focused on leaving everything in order in his administration because he will ask for a leave of absence between April and May to campaign for re-election—if his party, Partido Acción Nacional (PAN), allows him to be re-elected as mayor—or for any other available public position. “One thing is for certain, my name will be on the ballot,” he made clear. He said that while he is on leave, the citizens of San Miguel can rest assured that financial and human resources are in place to operate in 2018.

“If I am not here, the city will not stop its economic growth. I will be campaigning, but there will be public works everywhere. Regardless of the political turbulence, we will have a very good year.”

Finally, his message for Christmas and New Year’s was as follows: “I wish Sanmiguelenses a Merry Christmas in the company of their families. This is always a season to reflect and to recover energies to happily receive the new year. I also invite everybody to build a city where we all can live better.”
