REPORTING FROM MEXICO
San Agustin Tlaxiaca in the Mexican state of Hidalgo is very fortunate in having an honest mayor as their leader. Arturo Hernandez, the newly elected mayor of this picturesque town, opened a bank account where he will deposit and donate his entire government salary; thus, fulfilling a campaign pledge that he made to the voters. His salary will go to finance health care in his city.
Mr. Hernandez, who is a wealthy businessman, owns a shoe factory in San Agustin, states he did not become a politician to serve himself but to serve others.
The actions of this admirable man should serve as an example not only for local officials but to those that serve in the Mexican Congress and Senate whose salaries are higher than those of their American counterparts.
In a nation covered with corruption, one man stands out from the rest, his name is Arturo Hernandez, mayor of San Agustin Tlaxaica in the Mexican state of Hidalgo.
