Pedernales, Dominican Republic.- President Danilo Medina on Wednesday announced several works to harness the southwestern province’s tourism potential, but noted that he first win the May 15 elections at all levels.

The president and reelection candidate said despite the favorable poll numbers, no one can claim victory, and reiterated his call to see out the votes "even under rocks."

Medina said he will need Congress’ support for his plans to develop the south region during the next four years, and asked sympathizers not to split their vote in any of the ballots.

He said several development projects are in the offing for Pedernales and the entire region, which can expect times of progress in the near future.

“Good things are coming to Pedernales," Medina said, and announced the construction of a seaside promenade, an area for ??fishermen, an aqueduct wastewater treatment plants, and the expansion of Cabo Rojo Airport, starting in the next two months.

Medina spoke at a rally to support the reelection bid of ruling PLD party senator Dionis Sanchez.

Cement plant

The President drew applause when he announced that the Cemento Andino cement plant will continue to operate in the area after mogul Pepin Corripio acquired it, remaining as the region’s main sources of jobs with more than 700.

He forgot to say Maribel will be selling the Beaches to Millionaires she already has 10 she says. No peons on her beaches. She will accept payment to her bank account . Which is a joint account with Pat e Pallo. Upon payment and selling of all the beaches she can be reached in Miami! Pat e pallo can be reached at home in Amsterdam or his second home in A Swiss banking complex.

The master plan has to allow sufficient open beach areas to include public access and parking. The resorts and private interests have gobbled up beach fronts in the tourist zones of the country making public access to beaches difficult, if not impossible.

Re-election promise time. Other public works projects have been stopped because of lack of funding. Ask Cemex.

A Swiss banking complex can be successfully treated with many years of intense psychotherapy.
