Do we have a comisario in San Carlos??? I heard that someone got appointed with the new administration, but then I heard that he quit or got fired. And, with not good things. Is there someone else now? If so, who might he be?

If you are on FB you can see who is trying to get supported for this new job.
She could be a good candidate ..

Vince Radice's wife? Since I keep myself out of the loop,  I am interested in you opinion as to why she might be a good Comisario . We lost a great comisario (Efrain Soto) because of poor  pay and no support . How will this be different ? ?

I have personally known Ines for many years, and she is well educated, cares about the future of San Carlos, and has spent many hours helping to better the community that she lives in. It gets old seeing people in the office of Comisario that are only serving self interests. A lot of talk and no action. Ines is a doer. She works hard, and her family is a good example as to how she is as a person. She has raised two exceptional children, who have values, morals, and respect for others. Very refreshing in todays society. She would be a valuable asset to the community.

Thank you for your good explanation LTR. While I do not doubt that she has all of these fine qualities, I'm curious about whether she has or will have the full support of the City of Guaymas government. This has been a problem in the past. 

I do have a deep concern. Will she be able to totally separate her job activities from her personal life when she leaves the office at the end of the day? I raise this issue because I would be hesitant to seek her help, possibly on personal stuff, to find that my matter would be discussed with her spouse who has a proclivity towards writing "National Enquirer" style articles about people in our community. Will his ideas become the "decisions" of the comisario? And will I find myself publicly named in one of his scandal sheets?

Ballanamar:  If you haven't done anything you shouldn't then what is the problem. My opinion is that Vince has only exposed those that needed it so if you don't need it don't worry.  He's been around a long time and Inez is one of the best people you will ever meet and I doubt very seriously if they would let personal feelings come between the betterment of San Carlos.Politics with Guaymas will always be a big issue since they want all our money out here.

Kiwi. Thanks for your comment. I respectfully submit that doing good or doing bad is a very naiive criteria for deciding the outcome of an interface with the comisario's office. I  have had an excellent relationship with Efrain Soto who helped solve a problem that affected all of our local sector (El Creston). Had Vince been involved, there would have been a big mess rather than a solution. He was always accusing Mexican people of corruption. It is not a constructive way of advancing new community ideas or solving problems . 

I have been involved with various conservation issues with Mexican colleagues where we purposely kept Vince out of the loop to prevent a bad result.  The issues regarding the removal of the estuary towers were kept secret partly to avoid the possibility of Vince accusing corruption while we were trying to get the job done. I speak from experience. I accept the positive recommendations of those who support Ina. But, based on my experiences over the last couple of years,  Vince fitting into the equation would be a potential  disaster. 
Of course, all of my bantering is moot because the appointment of a San Carlos Comisario is a Mexican decision.

Vince wrote a piece and interviewed the renter, Mr. John Poppell, of one of our clients houses. The issue was that Mr. Poppell moved out of the house without notice owing three months rent and stole my client's TV, dish and DTV box claiming that since he paid for them, they were his. Well yes, the perp did in fact pay up front for the items BUT was reimbursed 100% through rent reductions! The items belonged to the house but Vince believed Mr. Poppell and NEVER once called my office or came to my door to ask me about it. After giving Mr. Poppell the opportunity to pay for the items and his refusal, the issue was turned over to the Ministerio Publico and I was made the bad guy because he was arrested. It was a one sided story reported by Vince as fact and ignored my client's side and the 3 months rent owed. The MP did force Mr. Poppell to pay for the stolen items in lieu of jail time but he skipped out on the three months rent which was a civil matter as opposed to the theft which was criminal. I don't think this IMO biased kind of "reporting" should be anywhere near the Comisario's office which is an appointed position (by the Mayor of Guaymas).

 I agree that Efrain Soto was a good Commasario.  We have had some good ones but they have been few and far between.  I disagree with you on the fact that Vince picks on "mexicans" only......yes, probably more than others but then again you will have to give credit where credit is due....it's not all one sided and I would think that if you spoke to him personally on a project you would get better understanding between the two of you.  Just my two cents worth.

Vince means well, and tries to get things done. No one is 100% right about everything, and its not fair to sit back and take pot shots.

Ines is very good people. I would give her a chance at this job in a heartbeat, as I believe she can decide what's best to get the job done for the community, and still manage her marriage, which is none of our business. If she is like the typical Mx wife, she is probably the boss, so its Vinny who will have to toe the line. LOL.

I think that she can very well separate her personal life with her job. She has in the past. As far as the other statements made, there are two sides to every story, and I have heard both sides to a few of them. This is not the place to comment on them, because it has nothing to do with the topic. Yes, Efrain Soto was a good comisario and there were others, and then there were ALOT of bad ones that did ILLEGAL things against me and others. We all know where that goes....
So ....Ines is an honest person, and that is what I go for. Honesty, Integrity, and Transparency, three things that are lacking in our town.

As a Mexican Kim, you at liberty to comment on political issues in Mexico; as a foreigner, I am not. In fact, as a Mexican, you could run for Comisario! Now wouldn't that be an interesting turn of events?!

I am not interested in being involved in politics. Anywhere. Why would you even bring it up. That is not what this thread is about. Leave me out of your future posts Richard.

This is the point of the thread, three questions. The answers are "no, no and no one yet. San Carlos needs a proactive Comisario that will lobby for our community and try to keep our property taxes applied locally.

I have known Ines for many years and she has all my respect.
Without repeating what was said already by LTR , bullshiper and Kiwi , all i can say i second every word about her.
Giving her a chance in proofing her self. We need someone here who cares about San Carlos and nothing else.

Evidently he is in the Comasarios office and has been for several weeks.  I know nothing about him except was told he has a Facebook page and I don't.
