Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - In the early hours of Monday morning, Puerto Vallarta's mayor-on-leave, Mayor Arturo Dávalos Peńa, made a public statement thanking the voters and his campaign team for his being re-elected as municipal president for another term.
In a speech made in front of his followers, he acknowledged that the computation of ballots had not yet ended, but said that since he was leading by more than 13,000 votes, the trend was irreversible.
When the final count confirmed that Arturo Dávalos had indeed been re-elected, he made history as the city's first two-term mayor, a feat made possible by recent political reforms.
During his speech, Dávalos assured the crowd that he would continue to strengthen the service and attention that his government provided to the citizens of Puerto Vallarta, and that this vote of confidence has only increased his commitment to the municipality.
First elected in 2015, Dávalos highlighted what he considered were the accomplishments of his administration - adding more police patrols, certifying honest officers, equipping fire fighters, finishing public works in many needy neighborhoods, paying down the municipal debt, and more.
"We are going to grow tourism in a safe and clean city," he vowed.
In his message, Dávalos pointed out that the triumphs of Enrique Alfaro in the Jalisco State Governor's race, and of Clemente Castańeda and Verónica Delgadillo in the Senate, mean that the city council will be working with allies at the state and federal levels.
He also celebrated the positive results in district five where, in addition to Vallarta, the Movimiento Ciudadano party was victorious in Mixtlán, Atenguillo, Mascota and Tomatlán.Sources: informador.mx • nmpolitics.net
