Baja & Border News Translations: Bus Given to Agricultural School; Galarza Brings Christmas Gifts to 4 Colonies
Bus Given to Agricultural School (El Sol de Tijuana, 12/10/12)
Tijuana, BC – A local legislator Laurencio Dado Alatorre delivered a passenger bus for students of a technical/agricultural school of San Quentin, so students may be transported.
The PRI Deputy reported in an interview, a group of students requested the support so a unit was donated to be able to transport them from their community in which they live to the school.
"What we did was respond to a need for these students of the technical/agricultural school of San Quentin, with the aim that they do not abandon their studies due to lack of transportation. In the Congress of the State we are committed to youth and education, since it is the only way in which young people can get ahead and get a good job", said the legislator of the PRI.
These students have to travel a distance of 40 kilometers daily to get to school, sometimes some could not attend and therefore were hindered in passing their subjects, he explained.
We are going to find a way to provide more help to support a greater amount of students such as these who are unattended to in this area of the entity, because we want to see young people prepared, said Laurencio Dado. http://www.oem.com.mx/elsoldetijuana/notas/n2802032.htm

Tijuana, BC - A member of the new Alliance Party, Arcelia Galarza Villarino, began Christmas deliveries as in every year and on this first occasion the beneficiaries were women, older adults and children from 4 colonies in the 13th district.
Yesterday morning, Galarza Villarino and her team were in colonia Nido de las Águilas, and later fractionation Pegaso, then continued to Rinconada Uno and ended the day at Rinconada Dos. The last two colonies are located in Otay, Tijuana headed toward Tecate.
Support granted by Congresswoman Arcelia Galarza, consisted of blankets and pantry items for a little more than 350 women and older adults, who are the most vulnerable in cold weather. Also, in the different colonies visited, she delivered nearly 300 toys to boys and girls.
Arcelia Galarza, prior to delivery, reiterated her commitment to support the neediest, especially in at significant dates such as Christmas and the New Year. In her message, she noted that she would work to continue to obtain more resources for those who need it most.
"Christmas is coming and it is a good time to give, but remember, all year is a time to give and I am always aware of the need to support", was part of her message in colonia Nido de las Águilas.
On the next two weekends, the Congresswoman planned to visit other colonies of the perimeter of the 13th district to make more deliveries of pantry items, blankets, sweets and toys. http://www.oem.com.mx/elsoldetijuana/notas/n2802026.htm
