Mayoral Candidate Isabel Ramírez: Campaign Proposals

Profesor Isabel Ramírez

Isabel Ramírez y un hombre de campo

By Jesús Aguado

Nueva Alianza (New Alliance Party) mayoral candidate Isabel Ramírez would like to see the construction of a structure over the Cachinches stream in order to turn it into a street. He also promotes reinvigoration of the campo with technology and subsistence farming for families.

Economic Development

“My concern is that with the crime problems and the lack of water [in San Miguel], tourism could decrease. For that reason, we should focus our ideas on the campo. It can be reactivated with technology and also by using organic products like sodium policromato, which preserves humidity in the soil until the next rain—during the rainy season.” If he wins, he would also promote the creation of family orchards to provide families with food.

Traffic and Infrastructure

Ramírez says he is definitely against parking meters. To decrease traffic, Ramírez proposes instead more floors in El Cardo parking lot. He would work with people who offer tourism services to promote that visitors to the city not use their cars.

He proposes that a bridge like the Bicentenario should be constructed at the El Pípila traffic circle. He also thinks that covering the Las Cachinches stream with a platform of concrete could help to use it as a street, which would mean less traffic at the Puente de Guanajuato bridge. He reassured us that he would conduct studies before starting this project in order to avoid the accumulation of gases that could lead to a deadly accident.

Urban Planning

If new housing developments are approved, they should be just for workers, he said. They must have associated wastewater treatment plants, schools, and enough shops to keep people out of the Historic Center. He proposes to review all plans for housing developments currently in progress to see if they fulfill legal requirements.

Safety

He would like to see the professionalization of the police force and offer them better equipment and bonuses. He also would reactivate the police school at Ejido de Tirado and increase life insurance payments in the event of an officer’s death from 100,000 to 500,000 pesos.

Crime is fought with a coordination of a well-organized society, emergency services, taxi drivers, and technology, he said. Ramírez proposes the use of schools in the afternoons for out-of-school activities for youths with no occupation. There must be art classes and workshops, he said.

What If…

If Ramírez wins the election, he would hire some of the current candidates to be in his cabinet: He would give Cuca González a post in the Sports Department. He would bring in Luis Alberto Villarreal as an advisor. He does not know Héctor Robles nor Ana Valeria Clares very well. He would hire Mario Hernández, because both men share a passion for the subject of public water. Maru Chávez was his student as was Ricardo Ferro. For that reason, and because of their abilities, there would be posts for them as well, Ramírez said.
