The Yucatan Times had the opportunity to briefly interact with Jaime Heliodoro Rodríguez Calderón “El Bronco”, independent presidential candidate who was walking along the Paseo de Montejo, under the Yucatan sun at 12 noon.
While the candidate was strolling along the iconic avenue of the Yucatecan capital, he was walking into the different shops and businesses, and a large number of reporters and cameramen were following him closely.
TYT: Candidate, what do you think about the situation that prevails in the state of Yucatán?
Bronco: In Yucatan there is a lot of poverty, and I can tell you for sure that this situation is the result of being in the hands of the PRI and the PAN political parties.
TYT: Candidate, what do you propose to fight poverty in Yucatan?
Bronco: The formula to end poverty is work, not the assistentialism proposed by other candidates. People have to be given: education, well-paid employment and development opportunities. The minimum wage must be at least $ 350 pesos per day, and not $ 100 pesos as indicated by other candidates.
TYT: What would you say to the people of Yucatan to make them vote for you?
Bronco: I would tell the people of Yucatan and all of Mexico that what the country needs is a government that emanates from the civil society, independent from any political party, since the political parties are the real evil that afflicts our country.
We need hardworking people who can go out there every day and give everything for their family, their community, their people. Not politicians who are only thinking about how they will get richer, stealing from the treasury, without doing anything good for the people or the nation.
TYT: Thank you very much Bronco.
Bronco: God bless you all.
