He warned that he will resort to other instances so that this crime is punished. “El Químico” reiterated that he has never been in a lawsuit with the councilors or with anyone, because I always go for the interests of Mazatlán, ” Not for partisan interests. He asked the mayors that they bet on Mazatlan and the Mazatlecos.
