... San Juan municipality of which Cruz is the mayor has a population of 389,714, the San Juan metro area is comprised of San Juan and the municipalities of Bayamón, Guaynabo, Cataño, Canóvanas, Caguas, Toa Alta, Toa Baja, Carolina and Trujillo Alto, is about 2 million inhabitants; thus, about half the population of Puerto Rico now lives and works in this area.
Each of those municipalities has their own mayor elected every four years. coordination is difficult with 77 other mayors operating at the same level ...

The above simply explains this:


"... Puerto Rican local leaders like Cruz who govern in large, wealthier, or heavily populated areas like San Juan hold even more political power than their counterparts in the continental U.S. who lead city governments of similar size and population to San Juan ...
... During recovery from Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico will likely still have to rely on mayors like Cruz to desperately become the voice asking for help ..."

Clyde I agree with you on the power of the mayors in PR but what I am saying is that Cruz is the only one in the metro area that is constantly in the news complaining about the recovery. You have 9 other mayors in the metro area that between them have the majority of the population, and you hear nothing pro or con about the the recovery from them. only from her and its all con, that seems to smell political. Yes she is concerned about her people but I believe if everything was as bad as she says then the other mayors would be backing her up.
as one of the articles says this is her step up to run for governor.

The major problem that PR will have is no tax base. They are leaving at the rate of about 2000 a day an most probably won't return.

To say Cruz is a con and is complaining about the recovery is not something I can agree with, on the basis of fact.
Again, information on
other Mayors was provided here, excerpts below:

"Like other mayors across storm-ravaged Puerto Rico, Perez has been working from early morning until late at night since Hurricane Maria struck the island, managing public shelters, delivering food and water to residents and handing out tarps."
"In rural Salinas, a town of 30,000 people located 50 miles (80 km) south of San Juan, Mayor Karilyn Bonilla Colón is visiting residential areas, walkie-talkie in hand, and focusing on basics."

"The other big need, Bonilla said, is tarps. She estimates half of Salinas’ 3,000 displaced residents could re-enter their homes, at least temporarily, if they had something to cover the holes in their roofs.
Not everyone in Salinas was impressed with Bonilla’s efforts."

Puerto Rico mayors play outsized role in hurricane recovery

And when you say this:


"Yes she is concerned about her people but I believe if everything was as bad as she says then the other mayors would be backing her up.
as one of the articles says this is her step up to run for governor."


It shows signs of clinging to a contradictory belief which you seem to espouse. In my mind, Cruz either cares for her people or she does not, but not both.

Once again, the evidence shows that other mayors are supporting Cruz ... Here's more evidence:


SAN JUAN MAYOR ATTACKED BY FAKE NEWS ARMY DURING TRUMP'S PUERTO RICO VISIT
BY CHRIS RIOTTA

... The mayor's name was plastered all over the web by the time the president walked off Air Force One on Tuesday, as bots and trolls shared misleading news reports claiming she had funneled government money to support a violent protest a year before the storm ...

Is San Juan's Mayor Sabotaging Puerto Rican Relief Efforts to Make President Donald Trump Look Bad?

A woman claiming to be a police officer in Puerto Rico suggested that federal relief was not being distributed after Hurricane Maria in order to politically damage Republicans

Despite this lack of evidence, the rumors were immediately picked up and distributed as fact. We are looking into them, and we will update this page as soon as we find more information.

This is a page in progress.

I know this is my first status update since 2020 begin, but all of us agree that 2020 delivered a low-blow
to each of us with the miscellaneous events we have recently seen which brought all of us great displeasure.
