PROGRESO – Mayor José Isabel Cortés Gongora still doesn´t know how much he´ll earn, “because I’m mayor to serve and work, not for a paycheck,” but says that, unlike his predecessor from PRI Daniel Zacarías Martínez, “I´ll get paid my salary because I´m going to work. ”
In fact, the first non-PRI mayor of Progreso (who came to the post by New Alianza party) states that “anyone who is (on the payroll) will have to work to earn a salary.”
This means, he says, that he´ll fire all the city´s no-work “aviadores,” which number 200 to 300, according to a preliminary review of the municipal payroll.
However, when asked if PRI leaders, who at City Hall are known as social workers, will continue to receive money, Cortés Gongora said he found out that those employed “are not affiliated with any party” and mayors in turn will give them accreditation to work and receive compensation.
“We will support the ones that helped me in the campaign, which are like about 80; they will get accreditation to receive their compensation, ” he said.
The mayor also said he received “a little bad” reception from municipal administration and has had to resort to loans from friends to work.
