    Default Mayor of Montellano

    This lady should be president. There is a ray of hope.

    Is it hype or does she really know how to think outside the proverbial box.

    I am thinking that it is only the Dominican ‘authority’ male that exudes the shameless, transparent corrupt (morally and socially) mentality.

    I applaud this person, has anyone ever met her?

    Yes, ...... I have met her several times in her business premises. I would be most interested as to why you consider her recent actions as transparent, uncorrupt etc.

    Was this not the lady who changed from the PRD just before the last election so that she could become Mayor somewhere?

    Please, don't respond with PM's as before as I will not respond to those, upfront confrontation on this thread is fine with me. ~ Grahame.

    Sosuanews makes her look like a saint in her crusade against Winston Spencer. LOL. You can't always believe everything you read on the internet though.

    Sounds like a nice lady doing good things especially making sure everyone in town has a job to earn some Christmas money.I hope this part is true. I feel anyone who wants to work and earn a living should be able to do so.

    I can't say one bad thing about her. When I was in puerto plata, she helped me with my residency papers and charged me far less than she charges other people. She helped me in many other ways too and guided me in daily life. I owe alot to her. In my books she is OK. Now I have no contact with her for the past 7 yrs so I don't know what she is up to now.

    Yes and now you can, too.

    She's the lady in the white suit. The person she is having a discussion with is Cesar de los Santos, Governor of Puerto Plata. This was filmed 5 weeks ago at the start of the Montellano city hall sit-in.

    Default I would like to see what she accomplishes.

    I just pray that nothing ‘happens’ to her and if so that her nemesis is put directly in jail and kept there.

    It appears he is an amoral slime with the conscience of a banana, oh, a typical Dominican male authoritative figure. (“one million pesos have gone missing”)

    Then again he will not be held accountable for anything he may do. Integrity and accountability must not have Spanish translations. (“But he comes from a rich family and his father has many friends among the important governors in this country.”)

    I really think that the issue is far more complex than one crusading Mayor (good person) vs. Winston Spencer (bad guy). There are historical issues over what was promised to the Mayor to get her to leave the PRD (where she had been a PRD Diputada for 4 years) and move with her followers to the PLD. There are transparency issues as to how this was presented to the people of Montellano at the time. There are items about Montellano becoming a municipality relatively recently & who was promised what in advance of this event. Then there are the alliances issues: allegedly, according to Dra. Fermin the Governor, Jose Cesar de los Santos, backs her whilst the Senator, Francis Vargas and Deputy Dr. Alfonso Crisóstomo back Winston Spencer.

    Then I think a bit of digging might reveal that less than saintly things have been done by both sides but I think someone with more in depth knowledge than me should comment. I do know that by the end of November even the Governor had had enough & removed himself from his mediation role

    I would urge those interested to keep an open mind on this one and to be very aware of spin, by both sides.
