    Default Not In My Town: Mayor of Santiago...

    Santiago.- Mayor Abel Martínez reiterated his decision not to allow the placement of (political) propaganda of any kind in the recovered areas of the city that represent the cultural heritage of the municipality of Santiago.

    The artist works that have contributed to the beautification of the city of Santiago will be preserved and he (the mayor) will not allow any company or political parties to place signs in prohibited areas.

    Excellent!

    Santiago has done an amazing turn-around in the last few years. I hope the trend continues.

    Santiago used to be the most clean city of the DR back in the days.

    As a Santiaguero who lives in the city, I think Abel is doing a fantastic job. Even those old folks who lived when Santiago had the reputation of being the cleanest city in DR say that right now is cleaner and better organized then back in the day. Besides, unlike other politicians who make 20 promises to fulfill one and a half Abel takes the approach of actually finishing whatever project his working on and then promote it, etc. Santiago most be the cleanest and most organized city in the island while San Jose de las Matas aka Sajoma has to be the cleanest and most organized small town in the whole island.

    However, I fear that once someone else become mayor, they will reverse all this progress and the city will regress to dirtiness and a state of chaos. It might be a pipe dream, but maybe this administration will set a precedent that future mayors will follow in order to win the votes of Santiagueros.

    Abel wants to be Vice President. Running with Leonel.

    Quite a feat for the guy who grew up in barrios and is reputed to be the leader of a group of "unruly" people in Cienfuegos.
