The governor of Baja California, Marina del Pilar Ávila Olmeda, toured the community of Colonia Granjas Familiares Buenos Aires, located in the eastern zone of Tijuana, where she heard and dealt firsthand with citizens’ requests and channeled them to the proper government areas.
As part of her visit to the neighborhood, the governor was welcomed by neighbors who showed their support and stated that they trust that issues will be resolved by state authorities.
“Our government is about land and that is where we are dealing with the needs of the people of Baja California. That is our priority, that all people have what they need to develop fully and live better,” Marina del Pilar said.
At this meeting with citizens, the Secretary of Wellbeing of Baja California, Netzahualcóyotl Jáuregui Santillán, was present, who visited homes in order to find out these people’s point of view.
In addition, he highlighted that much social aid has been given such as basic basket foods, blankets, computers, and tablets for students, as well as enrolling people in several different state government programs such as those that provide aid for seniors, people with disabilities, women who are heads of their homes, among others.
For his part, the Secretary for the Management, Sanitation, and Protection of Water of Baja California, José Armando Fernández Samaniego, pointed out that, since water supply is one of people’s main needs, a communal water outlet will be installed to immediately benefit 600 people.
In addition to this, the first analysis and technical studies will be carried out to allow for the installation of a potable water supply in this neighborhood, which mostly consists of members of the working class.
Lastly, Governor Marina del Pilar spoke with families inside their homes and businesses, listening to their different requests while reiterating her commitment with citizens as the focal point of her government’s actions.
