I want to invest in education, it is one of the most heartfelt demands of the people of Coyoacán. Campuses with minimum conditions are required, with decent conditions for students to study. Why do we consider this increase to be fair? Because Coyoacán went from 14th place in the efficiency and transparency of public spending when we received the administration, to first place and, today, we are among the first three places in efficiency,” said the mayor, Giovani Gutiérrez.

I want to emphasize that they are 4 cents less than what we had in 2021, but with a higher cost of living,” he said.
