Rueda highlighted that the success of the citizen consultation process lies in the fact that the municipality takes up all the suggestions and demands raised by the inhabitants, to enrich and improve the preliminary draft budget.

“Direct communication with the population is a practice that we have been doing since 2007, with our Good Government at the helm, Commander Daniel and our Vice President, Compañera Rosario and through our Mayor's Office, resolving the concerns, the problems that exist in each of the neighborhoods and communities. Every year we carry out this consultation process and from there we build our final budget with the valuable contributions of the population,” stated Rueda.

"The town councils are spaces that allow us to make our authorities aware of what our problems are. Today we come to submit a request to repair the road in the community of Cedro Galán 3, where the road deteriorates with the winter. so much so that it makes vehicular and pedestrian passage impossible,” said Patricia Cortez, a resident of the Nejapa region.
