If José Luis Pech Várguez of the National Regeneration Movement (Morena) is elected governor of Quintana Roo, the needs of women will be a priority for his administration. He will make sure that women are hired for government jobs and appointed to administrative positions and will also support women with government projects.
Pech Várguez spoke of his support for women during a visit to Holbox Island, accompanied by candidate for mayor of Lázaro Cárdenas, Martha Loya Cobos and for state deputy of District I, Leslie Sáenz Vissuet. He arrived at Holbox Island at 2 p.m. after having breakfast with his mother for Mother’s Day.
He highlighted the important role that women play in the development of Quintana Roo, contributing not only hard work but also enthusiasm and support for families.
He recalled the support that he has found from women during his tenure as a public servant. He promises that at least 50 percent of his appointees to first level positions will be women, and that a Morena governorship would give special support to female heads of household who want to start businesses.
He asked for a vote of confidence from the dozens of Holbox residents that he spoke with, promising to fight corruption in order to consolidate resources for social programs, especially to improve health, education and security.
