Marina del Pilar meets with the five mayors of Baja California

Tijuana.- Governor Marina del Pilar Ávila Olmeda held a working meeting with the heads of the five municipalities, all emanating from Morena, as well as with the president of the Foundational Municipal Council of San Quintín.

This is the first meeting that the state president has led in the company of the heads of municipal governments since she began her government on November 1.

Ávila Olmeda shared a photograph of the meeting on his social media accounts, as well as a story; “Working in coordination with the mayors,” he wrote in the latter.

While, in the official image of the meeting, he shared “I am always pleased to have meetings like the one today, with all the mayors of Baja California, to work with the heart ahead for the citizens.”

A few days after the end of the administration of Jaime Bonilla Valdez, the mayors Montserrat Caballero, of Tijuana; Armando Ayala, from Ensenada; Aracely Brown, from Playas de Rosarito and Darío Benítez, from Tecate, formed a group called COMUN (Committee of Municipalities of Baja California), together with Jorge Peralta, president of the Foundational Municipal Council of San Quintín.

Although the governor has led several events in Tijuana, Tecate, Ensenada and Mexicali, as well as in San Quintín, where the heads of these municipalities have attended as a guest, it is the first time that the seven leaders have met.

The meeting took place in Tijuana, where Ávila Olmeda headed his first “morning” broadcast this morning to give a report from various government areas.

In this same, he pronounced on the approval of the Law of the Secretariat of Citizen Security of Baja California, an initiative approved by the State Congress a week ago and that after having been endorsed by the councils of Tecate and Mexicali, as well as by the San Quintín Foundation Council.

Therefore, it only requires one more approval to be published in the Official Gazette of Baja California and enter into force on January 1, 2022.

Given the position of the mayor of Tijuana, Montserrat Caballero Ramírez, who yesterday said she will vote against this proposal, the governor called for reflection, as she assured that the new Secretariat will help Tijuana’s security.

“I invite you to reflect on the issue of the Secretariat of Security, Tijuana is not only the most violent municipality in the country, but it is also considered one of the most violent municipalities in the world,” commented Marina del Pilar.

In addition to addressing this issue, Morena’s president announced that they would discuss other urgent matters, waiting for one more City Council to join this constitutional reform.

In Playas de Rosarito, he said, the reform is already in committees.
