As of Thursday March 7th The San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) has a new Deputy Mayor. Councilor Mito Paz has been electedas Deputy Mayor by the other council members. According to Mito Paz the decision for electing a new deputy was in order to grant another council member some insight into the experience of a deputy to the Mayor.
During the SPTC’s first year of office, the major priorities were infrastructure in particular streets and proper garbage disposal to promote healthy living under the portfolio of the previous deputy Severo Guerrero Jr. Since Town Council elections in 2012, major changes have been enacted in the areas of traffic, garbage disposal and infrastructure.
In an interview with Paz, he stated to The San Pedro Sun that the municipality should expect major changes in the promotion of tourism in the coming months. As the deputy, Paz wants to immediately focus on the beaches of San Pedro, making them more attractive to tourists. Paz also wants to implement bilingual advertisement in order to attract visitors from our neighboring countries, especially during the slow season. “I want to implement the tourism strategy and really go after our marketing plan; we want to raise tourism during the slow season so we want to have different programs to attract visitors during the slower months.” The SPTC wants to encourage cultural tourism by heavily promoting our festival such as “Dia de San Pedro” and “Lobster Fest”.
The San Pedro Sun congratulates Mito Paz on his new post as Deputy Mayor. We wish him all the best.
