Beaches Were “On the Mat” Says New Director

By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 02 July, 2011

(Acapulco, NA 1 July) Rogelio Hernández Cruz, 44 was recently named by Governor Ángel Aguirre Rivero to the post of Director of Promotion and Management of Acapulco’s Beaches. In a press interview, he used a metaphor to boxing when he said, “I found the beaches ‘down and on the mat’ when I came into office. They were broke, economically speaking, with old furniture and appointments, and vehicles that did not operate. In addition, someone stole $5,000,000 pesos destined for salaries for personnel.” He added, we will do everything we can within the resources we have available.” Hernández has already announced the replacement of worn out beach umbrellas in the Traditional Zone and the construction of 200 new palapas along the beaches from Tamarindos to Icacos.

When asked who was responsible for the defalcation of $5 million from his budget, he said “Everything points to the last letter of the alphabet,” in a not-so-veiled reference to the previous administration of the State of Guerrero.
