MÉRIDA, Yucatan, March 11.- The mayor of Merida, Renán Barrera, in the framework of the commemoration of International Women’s Day, recognized the work of women at the head of the municipalities of Yucatan with their defense of ideals, preparation, and spirit of service and called for unity and teamwork to improve living conditions and generate greater opportunities for all.

“My greatest recognition to their work, as they lead humanist municipalities where the central figure is the citizens, and their work revolves around the development of public policies and programs to improve the living conditions of the population,” he said.

In the meeting she held with twelve women municipal presidents, she emphasized that they have the enormous opportunity to continue strengthening the conditions of equity and equality for women, through programs and public policies that help them develop their potential in different areas, which, without a doubt, will always be reflected in the wellbeing of their families.

“I want to tell you that in me you have an unconditional ally, with the best disposition to share experiences, programs, and policies that we have successfully implemented and that you can replicate in your municipalities,” he added.

This event was attended by the mayors of Espita, Ixil, Kantunil, Muna, Muxupip, Sinanché, Sucilá, Tahmek, Teabo, Tinum, Xocchel, and Quintana Roo, Barrera Concha invited them to maintain their responsibility in each of the municipalities they represent, to become factors of unity, teamwork and coordination to continue the progress of Yucatán for the wellbeing of all those who live here.

Barrera Concha stated that at a national level, the mayors of Yucatan are an example of governance through dialogue, realistic solutions, well-informed decisions and executed with results that benefit the majority.

“The citizens expect us, as representatives of thousands of Yucatecans, to agree on the fundamentals: their well-being, quality of life, security, progress, and development,” he said.

Lorena Gamboa, Mayor of Kantunil, thanked Mayor Renan Barrera for the training provided by the Municipal Women’s Institute to the staff of her counterpart in her municipality.
“With an experience of more than 20 years, this support helps us to grow as a Women’s Institute, which translates into more actions in favor of the women of Kantunil,” she said.

She pointed out that, although at the beginning part of the male population did not accept that a woman was at the head of the municipal government, with the support of the women who approve of her work, a seed has been sown in Kantunil to promote equality between men and women.

In this sense, Neida María Heredia Leal, Mayor of Tahmek, commented that in her first of three municipal administrations, she has demonstrated that a woman can govern a municipality well.

“Since my first time as Mayor, I tried to support the women of Tahmek as much as possible, but it is only now that with the Women’s Institute that we have that we have been able to combat violence of all kinds and try to empower women,” she said.

She thanked the Mayor for the help that the Municipal Women’s Institute provides to her municipality, because when they feel overwhelmed with the cases they deal with, the Mérida City Hall supports them with legal referrals and even shelter.

For her part, María Minelia Quintal Cel, Mayor of the municipality of Quintana Roo (yes, there is a municipality in Yucatan named Quintana Roo), said that at first, it was very difficult for men to accept her as their municipal authority, but with the work, she has done she has earned the respect of this part of the population.

She said that for more women to dare to better themselves, she has worked very hard through the Women’s Institute of Quintana Roo, which promotes, among other things, actions in favor of female citizens to improve the economy in homes, through self-employment.

“To achieve this we have taken as a reference the work done by the Municipal Institute of Women because it has very good strategies that we are trying to replicate as far as possible,” Quintal Cel concluded.
