This is Augusto Chacón, a member of Jalisco How We Are Going.
“We incorporated four new municipalities. Now we are evaluating six, not just Guadalajara and Zapopan, and I think that one of the benefits this has had is having direct numbers to disclose what has been done, what has not been done or what has been stagnant based on what they proposed themselves and the daily work of Jalisco Como Vamos has made the team of mayors more involved in feeling part of the accountability “declared Augusto Chacón, a member of Jalisco How We Are Going.
The municipalities evaluated in these administrations are Guadalajara, Zapopan, El Salto, Tlajomulco, Tonalá and Tlaquepaque.. This exercise established a baseline to determine where the administrations started in various indicators, their mayors set a base goal for each year and this will allow them to know how much progress they have made.

Each year it is planned to update the information with the goals set by the municipal presidents. In December of this year, Jalisco Como Vamos and Coparmex will present the progress, stagnation or setbacks of 2021.
“And that the internal people of the municipalities, who are the ones who also remain, take charge that their work has an effect to evaluate not only the mayor, but the entire administration, I think it has caused a good change, also in the look that from outside we put the work of the mayors, for example, knowing that it is very important that they take care to collect the property tax because if not there will not be the money to do things “Augusto Chacón concluded.
