Zepeda Munro believes that the responsibility of progress is shared by his staff and the society they serve. He calls to the communities to continue advancing and doing what is best for Peñasco.
The Mayor addressed rumors that circulated towards the end of last year that indicated changes amongst his staff and appointed officials, stating that the rumors were just that, rumors. He remarked that only minimum staff cuts to the local government were anywhere in sight.
Zepeda Munro has indicated that there will be no major cuts but minor changes may be needed when considered appropriate. Cuts may result in office rotations that will allow the local government to do more work with less people.
Third Pinacate trek
With participation expectations exceeded, and no serious incidents to report, the third annual trek entitled “The Steps of Kino in the Pinacate” was a hit and provided a concrete basis to provide continuity for these types of excursions, reported Amaranto Celaya Celaya, Municipal Chronicler.
Celaya noted that of the 85 people initially expected for the event, this number reached up to 106 in total.
He added there were also at least 40 who were not able to register in days leading up to the event.
In addition to being encompassed in a surrounding of relaxation, culture and nature, there was a true family feel to the excursion, as 53% of the adventurers were women, 27% children and 20% men.
Celaya remarked there were no major incidents to report, except for that of a child who fell into a water basin who was promptly rescued with no major problems.
He pointed out with this success, they are considering the possibility of continuing the treks, and even to hold two events a year rather than one as had been done during these first few years.
The city Chronicler reiterated the spirit of these treks is fully cultural, as one cannot ignore the enormous importance of the Italian Jesuit Missionary, Eusebio Francisco Kino, who also had the virtue of being a cartographer, geographer and astronomer.
The signified an unprecedented event, as it was first time a sitting mayor climbed the volcanic cone measuring 1,200 meters high, across a 24 kilometers trek, and also the first time that a group of this size participated in such a climb, as annually only a total of 30 to 40 people do so.
