"I was at the ceremony and a man came by and said" Thanks very much José Manuel ", he hit the box and went away, he did not say anything, I kept thinking about the millions of times he was not home, he was missing us, and the truth is that if he changed the lives of so many people, he did not do so badly, "he said about the role his father had as a political leader.
Finally, the daughter of the former governor emphasized one of the qualities her father had as a politician and person: "I listened to you because I knew for sure what I was thinking and I listened to you carefully, and the truth is that the insecure people being foolish They do not want to listen, they are reluctant to change their idea, he, no, he was convinced of what he believed, but he still listened to you.
