“We are projecting an administration that will not stop a single second in 2018,” says Mayor Ricardo Villarreal.

This year, according to Villarreal, will see the inauguration of important works in which his administration has invested more than 100 million pesos. Among those works are the paving of calle No Me Olvides—connecting the road to Alcocer with the road to Querétaro. According to Villareal, this work had previously been classified as a new boulevard at an unpaved street that, like its name, “had been forgotten.”

He also mentioned that 2018 will be important because it will finally mark the opening of the C4 (Center of Computing, Communication, Control and Command) for the Secretariat of Public Safety. The new building, adjacent to the administrative offices, will feature advanced technology to surveil the city. (Read the interview with Ricardo Benavides on page 8.)

“San Miguel will have a successful year, because we are a city with healthy finances and we paid off an important amount of our public debt. We have the finances, material, and human resources to make more public works for Sanmiguelenses,” said Mayor Villarreal. He did not give specifics but assured us that this year, important public and private investments will arrive in the city to solidify it as a national and international touristic destination.

One specific that Villareal was willing to discuss regards the new park that will be constructed at Obraje—a space of 25 square meters where families will have green areas, a playground area, a sculpture zone, and possibly a parking lot. This year, he also expects the inauguration of the road that connects the general hospital with the road to Dr. Mora as well as the improvements to avenida Las Américas.

It will be an important electoral year in 2018, due to the elections at the 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. I want to clarify that 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.”
