October 25, 2012

In order to build a partnership for the benefit of the locals and the foreign community from the United States, the Mayor of Puerto Vallarta, Ramón Guerrero Martinez, held a productive meeting with Kelly Trainor, the American Consular Agent for the Puerto Vallarta region.

During the meeting, they discussed projects for visitors to the city and foreign residents such as a resource desk to offer legal advice for foreign tourists.

Guerrero Martinez announced that a legal resource desk will be part of the Social Services office and will provide services exclusively for foreign tourists, including a hotline that will provide 24-hour service with bilingual staff and immediate responsiveness.

Another program that will be launching is "Adopt Vallarta," through which the foreign or local community can support charitable causes by contributing their time, resources or materials in benefit of a school, institution, family, child or others that require assistance in the city. This scheme will be implemented through the Municipal DIF who will ensure that funds are directed to the intended causes.

Ramón Guerrero shares the consular agent's interest to install security cameras (for which they will be seeking state and federal financial assistance) to further enhance the safety of Vallarta.

He further noted he will also be asking the Jalisco Secretary of Education to enhance the curriculum of primary and secondary schools to include training, values and tools in vocations that will benefit and sustain the city.

Kelly Trainor, who called the meeting, told the new mayor that he has the support of the American community in all actions necessary to ensure the welfare of this city.

Also attending the breakfast meeting were the Municipal Tourism Director, Carlos Gerard, and General Manager of Hotel Miramar, Rafael Alejo, who served as an excellent host.
