U.S. Consul General David Micó, Consular Section Holder Suzzane McGuire and other members of the U.S. consulate staff who specialize in serving the needs of American citizens in the Yucatan Peninsula were present at an event co-sponsored by The Yucatan Times that took place at Hennessy’s Irish Pub on Friday Sept. 18; the event aimed to introduce the new Consul to some of the most prominent members of the expat community in Mérida, who confirmed their assistance via facebook.
Mr. Micó arrived at 7:30 sharp accompanied by his wife Denisse Crump Micó. The couple entered the premises while people gathered around them waiting their turn to introduce themselves, and have a word with the Consul.
Friday´s event was intended to provide the American expatriate community a chance to get acquainted with Consul General Micó and offer Americans residing and visiting in the Merida area an opportunity to discuss their questions and concerns with U.S. government representatives in the Yucatan Peninsula.
The diplomat expressed his interest in learning about the expat community living in the Peninsula, to get to know them closely and to learn the reasons for their relocation here. According to the consulate, approximately 4,500 American expats live in Yucatan currently.
Not only Expats, but also Yucatecans who wanted to meet the Consul in person attended the event, and in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, they were able to chat with Mr. Micó, who speaks fluent Spanish.
Consul Micó was introduced Aug. 18 as the replacement for the previous Consul, Sonya Tsiros. Consul Micó will serve for three years to represent the U.S. in the states of Yucatan, Campeche and Quintana Roo. He arrived in Mérida on Aug. 10.
