In this regard, the Mayor of Vallarta stressed that these works will be carried out without incurring a single peso of debt to the municipality, since for the first time in Vallarta’s history the budget will be used rationally, without corruption, without deviations and with the sole purpose to benefit the citizenry.
“I am proud to say that these 230 million+ are community resources. No debt will be taken out in your favor for these infrastructure works, as other administrations have done before, leaving us debts of more than 150 million for the construction of works they boasted and that today We continue to pay with your money,” he said.
The budget funds used for these projects are those approved by the city council, which drew national attention after a councilwoman publicly accused the mayor’s family of supplying her with money in exchange for her vote to increase the city budget.
