Presidente Fernando Martínez Guerrero
About a month ago a group of women went to Cihuatlan for a meeting with some government officials and discovered there was quite a bit of money earmarked for Pinal Villa improvements. One woman mentioned that the money was sitting there because our community had not asked for help. Yesterday on the plaza we had a junta with the Presidente and a bunch of department heads. The purpose of this first meeting in a long time was to find out what was most important to us.
They made quite a show of intention with the poles, a road grader, two dump trucks and they painted the playground equipment. The most talked about issues were the road into Pinal and the Soccer field. Improving the water situation on the road was promised and this morning they brought in lots of good fill dirt to fill some wet spots. They also promised to install some large pipes in the few water crossings.
Of course, none of the soccer players showed up to give input about which area, of two, they wanted for a field and what to do with it. There are two stores on corners of the field and the owners had some pretty petty complaints about balls hitting the store or a car in front. We'll see about that later. Over all I was really impressed with the President.
