September 1, 2017. Political pundits were banking on the arrival of the promised garbage truck in Punta Gorda to be the launching pad for the re-election candidacy of incumbent Mayor Fern Gutierrez.
But the official handing over ceremony took place on Tuesday, and even with the chairman of the Untied Democratic Party (UDP), Alberto August in attendance, there was not even a hint of a candidacy for Mayor Fern Gutierrez.
Nonetheless, the arrival of the garbage truck is welcome news for residents of the town, who have had to endure many inconveniences with the collection and proper disposal of their garbage.
