The question why do the poor suckers who pay taxes on San Pedro, and it is very unclear how many of us actually pay this. Without a doubt it is less than 40% of the residents that live and own property on the island.
The monies appear to be given in ludicrously long contracts for the mayors friends and associates. so when you see the administrators and maintenance peopl congratulate them on the bonuses and the severance pay that they will ultimately receive.
Remember you are paying a huge amount of money for the luxuries that they all obviously deserve, and unfortunately none of the repairs to the roads etc. are able to be paid for.
