Ziliotto thanked Fernández for “respecting the word pledged”

The governor of La Pampa, Sergio Ziliotto, thanked President Alberto Fernández on Tuesday for fulfilling the promises he made during the 2019 campaign, and highlighted that attitude by pointing out that “today, at a time when politics is bastardized and everything the bad thing is politics, we have here a clear example and it is nothing more and nothing less than respect for the word pledged”.

“I sincerely want to say thanks to our President of the Nation, not only because for the first time in the history of the province of La Pampa a president comes three times to tour it, to chat with the people, to see the productive activity, learn about the problems in order to make the best decisions,” Ziliotto said when speaking at the Cabinet meeting in one of the “Alternative Capitals,” the Pampas city of General Pico.

In this sense, he especially recalled the commitment signed in Rosario by Fernández on August 7, 2019, prior to the closing of the PASO campaign, with 12 provincial leaders, plus three elected governors and several candidates that established five specific points of an “agenda Development” for each jurisdiction to be implemented as of December 10, 2019.

In the case of La Pampa, they have already been fulfilled, assured Ziliotto, and highlighted what Fernández proposed at the time, that his management would be for “a country governed by a president and 24 governors.”

When mentioning the points of the agreement with La Pampa, the first was “to recognize the historical debt that the national government had with the province, which was paid”; build houses, an item “where we already have quotas for houses for 4,000 units”, while the previous national government gave “(Carlos) Verna 63 houses in 4 years to build”.

In terms of routes, he said that “today we have contracts in execution for pavements with national funds for 12,200 million pesos, it was a promise and today it is a reality”; as well as “today we have many urban sanitation works for 3,700 million for Santa Rosa, which is in a health emergency.”

Ziliotto placed special emphasis on the national financing of the Río Colorado-General Pico aqueduct, for almost 17,000 million pesos, “which will travel 405 kilometers, and since drinking water is a scarce element, we give importance to this natural resource because we know how that it costs us to achieve it, and we demonstrate efficiency not only in production but also in what human consumption does”.

He specified that “the other great challenge, in addition to federalism, was to create work, and despite everything that happened to us, we have achieved it, in the face of unpayable debt, Covid, the global war that affects us. However, 13 months that private employment grows in Argentina, and in La Pampa the unemployment rate is the lowest in the last 5 years”.
