They accused Ernesto Juárez and Teresita de Jesús Luis Ojeda – former municipal president – of wanting to manipulate and monopolize the works.
“We demand that an audit be applied to Teresita de Jesús Luis Ojeda and Magali Martínez, both former municipal presidents, who did not deliver works or municipal goods, and now with the current president, history repeats itself,” they lamented. .
They affirmed that the central office will continue to be occupied until the agreements are respected.
