Cuca González; Proposals

Cuca González

José Cruz González

By Jesús Aguado

Athlete Cuca González, running for mayor with the Green Party, says he is the candidate for traditionalists, athletes, and manufacturing. Safety in San Miguel de Allende, he said, must be improved. In our interview with González, he told us that if he wins the election, he would hire some of the current candidates, and even told us what posts he would assign to whom.

On safety

This Green candidate proposes, firstly, to hire a Secretary of Public Safety from San Miguel as well as local people to be police officers. He said that currently, those in charge of our safety are not from here. That is why if they steal, extort, or assault a Sanmiguelense or visitor, “we need to know where they live, in order to expose them publicly, so they can be ashamed of what they do.”

“We will have the necessary police officers,” he continued. “San Miguel has more than 170,000 inhabitants, and we need to know how many [officers] we need. Currently, all hired policemen are not from here. If they do something bad, they leave and we never see them again,” González said.

On education

“Addictions are in our young people. In our neighborhoods, we need parks and culture houses, spaces where they can expand their talents in arts and sports. They may have the talents, so we are going to bring them the tools and specialized teachers to guide them and take them out of crime, if they are involved.”

On city planning

Candidate González remembered that two decades ago the last house in San Miguel was at the Obraje, where he used to run. Now the city has grown ten kilometers further out. “We need to conduct studies to find out if we need more housing developments or not, and if they are authorized, they ought to be self-sustainable in terms of water and must have a dedicated sewage treatment plant. This is because Mexico is one of five countries in the world that is losing its water quickly,” he said. Regarding the proposed airport in San Miguel, he said, “Why not? If we need it, the answer is yes,” and assured us that it would occupy the location of the current airfield.

On mobility

“We need traffic education. I say no to parking meters,” he said. “We need to conduct studies, if needed, and change the directions of the streets to have less traffic.”

On public works and infrastructure

“We need parks and gardens and recreational areas with professionals to teach children to try out different activities so that they can leave crime behind.”

On economic development

“We need to reactivate the manufacturing sector, because they generate employment in San Miguel. They need credits and equipment. We have tourism, yes, but for how long? Also, [I say] yes to industry at the industrial park.”


All athletes with [high] results should have a scholarship of 2,000 pesos a month. That is “my proposal,” González told us. The current municipal support given to athletes is 600 pesos every two months, and that “is not even enough for transportation,” he said.

In conclusion

Every person is free to fall in love with whomever they want, said González, and he added that he respects the LGBTIQ community. He also supports the idea of helping traditionalists to preserve traditions. He is in favor of abortion if it is legal.

If he wins this race, González said he would hire Luis Alberto Villarreal as secretary of the City Council and Héctor Robles as director of the city’s legal department. Luis Ferro he would make director of the Public Works Department, Ana Valeria Clares the director of economic development, and Mario Hernández director of the Ecology Department.
