Governor Marcos Covarrubias Villaseñor Gives First State of the State Address
Baja California Sur enjoyed historical advances in infrastructure in health, drinking water, sport and highways with the highest level in investment for a first year government, “without accumulating not even one peso of public debt,” Governor Marcos Covarrubias Villaseñor declared as he presented his first State of the State address at the Teatro de la Ciudad in La Paz on March 15th, 2012.
At the invitation only event, which included politicians, civil servants, businesspeople, ex governors and special guests, Covarrubias Villaseñor said he would continue to be responsible for the entire State, to offer them all possibilities of life and well being, with safe cities and communities and certainty towards the future.
He stated that as the head of government, his social commitment to BCS is, “looking towards the future, with an open heart to the most sensitive needs to those who have little.”
Covarrubias Villaseñor also mentioned that his government has dedicated 476 million pesos to the renovation of health clinics in rural areas that were abandoned. In education, they have spent 276 million pesos in the construction and renovation of educational centers in each of the 5 municipalities. Also, they have historically spent 93 million pesos on synthetic turf for 11 sport fields in the state, an area where past governments have paid little attention to.
In security, the Governor implemented the State Police Creditable model with the support of a federal initiative and the work that is taking place in other states, to have a cooperative police force who give certainty to society by providing security. In equipment and infrastructure for security, they have invested more than 186 million pesos.
In tourism, the State Government is working closely with the federal government in the preparation and organization of the G20 Summit that will take place this June in Los Cabos, which includes the construction of the International Convention Center in Los Cabos.
Covarrubias Villaseñor, the former mayor of Comundu and federal deputy, was elected Governor of BCS during state elections on February 6th, 2011 as a member of PAN, National Party of Action.
