From Gonzalo Arcila

Thank you very much for your recognition.

The position I have been appointed to is of great responsibility and honorability.  It represents now a great challenge, yet an opportunity, to make a difference for the good of the municipality.

I have sworn, and I am committed, to perform with clarity and to give the best of my abilities, knowledge and experience.  I am committed to do so for the New Municipality of Tulum, and for Akumal especially.  You can be sure that I am putting my heart into it and I will do the best I can.

For those interested in what my duties are (probably you have no idea) here is a direct translation an extract of the Law of Municipalities of the State of Quintana Roo, which describes the faculties and obligation of my position.  Please feel free to share this information to any one interested.  After you read it you might be asking yourself a question: Why in the world is he doing that???  The simple answer is…. “Service to my community.”

Thank You
