In order to foster and strengthen friendship and fraternity between the cities of Puerto Vallarta and San Francisco, California, finalized their relationship with the Sister Cities committee.
The interim mayor, Rodolfo Domínguez Monroy, led the twinning ceremony and noted that Puerto Vallarta is a growing city, and as a government, we work on a vision to develop our resources, improve infrastructure and take care of the environment, but also improve the quality of life of its inhabitants.
Accompanied by the General Consul of Mexico in San Francisco, Gemí José González López; the president of the tourism commission, Martha Susana Rodríguez Mejía and the director of Municipal Tourism, Ramón González Lomelí, the mayor recognized those who took the steps to form the relationship with the committee for the benefit of tourism in Puerto Vallarta.
“I know that they will do their best to ensure that the achievements in health, tourism, sports, ecology, culture, and technology are tangible for both cities because borders do not exist when working with will and conviction,” said Dominguez Monroy.
The councilor Susana Rodríguez Mejía, said that this is a joint effort, mainly recognizing the LGBT community in the city, a thriving sector that contributes to the greatness of Puerto Vallarta.
Also, she announced that for a year they have worked on this twinning, which today is crystallized with the support of the members of the Committee of Sister Cities, so she said that this fraternity will strengthen ties with a destination that receives two daily flights from the city of San Francisco, in addition to sharing a love and inclusion for the differences and communities that both cities represent.
Oliva Izaguirre, national president of Sister Cities, pointed out that Puerto Vallarta is an example city, with optimistic, enthusiastic and intelligent people, that is being united with important cities to strengthen bonds of friendship, to share experiences and to work in the different areas such as culture.
