Foreigners to receive better service in San Miguel

Can't Post | Private Reply
The recent murders in SMA drew attention to the fact that gringos have largely
been shut out of the information loop due to both language issues as well as
lack of transparency. Contrary to what some people believe, I think that the
civil list and the recent broadcast of the Coffee with the Consul have been
beneficial in exposing these facts and have gotten the authorities' attention.
The State Attorney will today announce a special unit dedicated to providing
bi-lingual service to foreigners and Mayor Lucy has promised better
communication with, and investigations by, the Ministerio Publico. This is
really good news and, if accomplished, will lend credence to the image of San
Miguel as a community which takes the safety of it's residents and tourists
seriously. It won't stop all crimes of course but it will insure that the people
know whether they are actually being prosecuted. That isn't the case in most
Mexican towns.
