Baja California Election Results:
While San Diego conducted its own municipal elections, Mexico also celebrated the results of their municipal and state elections. The Partido de Acción Nacional (PAN) party, which represents Mexico’s more conservative and free enterprise-minded policy leaders, gained leadership of seven out of twelve states.
Baja California’s election determined the state legislators and mayors of Ensenada, Mexicali, Playas de Rosarito, Tecate and our neighboring city of Tijuana. It is important to note that the City of Tijuana has now gained PAN leadership which reflects the Baja State Governor’s party.
The Chamber team congratulates all newly elected officials regardless of party affiliation, and look forward to working collaboratively on common goals to strengthen the overall Cali-Baja mega-region.
