Federal and state funding from what I have been told is based on if you are a municipio as apposed to a comisaria. If San Carlos were it's own municipio then it could apply for state and federal funds more easily and then not have Guaymas skim god only knows how much off the top of the funds that come for said projects.

As I have stated in many articles on my blog, I don't think becoming a municipio will cure all of the problems we have. But there is little doubt, and decades of evidence, that Guaymas is not willing to deal with the problems of San Carlos.

And why should Guaymas care about San Carlos. There are perhaps 3,000 registered voters here? Guaymas has a population of 150,000 mas o menos. Guaymas does not have to care at all about San Carlos. In a nut shell Guaymas sees San Carlos as La Vaca Gorda. And they milk it for all it is worth.
