Araya brings his wish list to Casa Presidencial

There are four priorities in the agenda of Johnny Araya, who won election Sunday as mayor of the central canton of San José.

He met Wednesday to discuss his plans with Laura Chinchilla Miranda, at Casa Presidencial.

Araya revealed on election night that he seeks to construct a trolley system in San José. That was one of his priorities. He won with about 60 percent of the vote.

Older residents were pleased by the idea because they remember when a trolley line ran up Paseo Colón and when it was covered over with asphalt.

Araya and the president also discussed citizen security, the creation of more technical colleges and preparation of the country for the Central American Olympic games.

Ms. Chinchilla said she saw the necessity of the central government helping municipalities to improve management and advance projects for the benefit of residents, said Casa Presidencial. She won her party’s presidential nomination in a race that included Araya.
