Mazatlan Sinaloa. – Raúl Rico González protested this morning as General Director of the Institute of Culture, Tourism and Art of Mazatlán.

His appointment was approved unanimously by the members of the Board of Directors.

The Council session, held at the Ángela Peralta Gallery, was chaired by the Municipal President of Mazatlán, Edgar González Zatarain, who announced the integration of Rodolfo Cardona Pérez in the Administration and Finance department.

When announcing the appointment, the Municipal President of Mazatlán, Edgar González Zatarain, referred to Raúl Rico as a man who knows how to reconcile conflicts, unify cultural matters and stabilize financial matters.

The Mayor stressed that the new director of Culture will have the great responsibility of applying the budget to balance finances and that what is spent has a social, cultural and waste-free meaning. Regarding the work team, the Mayor specified that its integration will be the responsibility of the new owner of the para-municipal.

Before representatives of the media, he stressed that the new administration of Culture will have to carry out the cultural and artistic project of Mazatlán, without demeriting events that are already a tradition such as Carnival, in response to a very precise instruction from the Governor of Sinaloa, Ruben Rocha Moya.

In turn, Raúl Rico González stated that he will make an assessment of the conditions in which the Institute of Culture finds itself and based on that, decisions will be made to carry out the cultural project of the municipality.

Rico González emphasized that a priority will be to redo the educational project that is developed through the schools and workshops of the Municipal Arts Center, where artists who stand out on the national and international scene have been trained.

“If we let it get out of hand, Mazatlan would be losing what it had achieved,” he said.
