City Workers Due Back from Añorve Campaign in Two Weeks

By: David Real | Real Acapulco News - 02 February, 2011

(Acapulco, JG, 2 February) Victorio Robles Blanquet, Human Resources director for Acapulco’s city government reminds everyone who took a leave of absence to help in Añorve’s political campaign that February 15 is the deadline for returning to work. Among those who withdrew from their positions to work for the PRI candidate were the number 2 man in the government, General Secretary (Chief of Staff) Vicente Trujillo Sandoval, the Secretary for Social Development, Érika Lührs Cortés, and the directors of Municipal Services, of Governance, of Fishing, and others. No explanation was given why the city could do without the services of these people for two whole weeks after the election; presumably it is to let them recover from the disappointment that their candidate did not prevail.

When asked if Añorve would be returning to the mayor’s post and if there would be “restructuring” within the municipal administration, Robles Blanquet avoided an answer. He said that the mayor, José Luis Ávila Sánchez, would be the person to ask about any possible changes in personnel. Since Sunday’s election, the city government has been officially silent with respect to the outcome.
