Ignacio Torres with Horacio Rodríguez Larreta
The national senator of Together for Change Ignacio “Nacho” Torres launched his candidacy for governor of Chubut for the elections that will take place on July 30. As announced in a statement, the opposition leader has the support of the hard and moderate wing of the opposition coalition, including Gerardo Morales, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta and Patricia Bullrich.
The launch event was held in the town of Puerto Madryn, at the Hotel Rayentray facilities, where Torres was together with the candidate for Lieutenant Governor, Gustavo Menna. There, Torres presented the team that will compete at the end of July for seats in the provincial Legislature and in the municipalities of the different towns. “The worst thing that can happen to a people is to resign themselves and believe that this is normal. Everyone is here because they want to raise their voices and we have a unique opportunity in twenty years to change the history of our province,” Torres said.
“I am convinced that we have to learn from those pioneers who came when the province was an inhospitable place and who made it great; a province that had the same potential as now, which at some point was the showcase for the development of Argentina. Unfortunately, we all witnessed the negligence and mismanagement of public resources that led us to be as we are. We have to make the clearest and most sincere campaign of all: look people in the face and tell them the truth. Politics is full of ‘girls’ who say that problems are solved just like that. This province does not need messianic leaders, but rather leaders that tend to unite all Chubutans,” he said.

Torres highlighted the front that was formed in Chubut, made up of radicals, Peronists, and PRO leaders. “In short, a citizen movement that is what gives us the strength to move forward,” he defined. “The province is as it is as a product of deliberately bad decisions. Entire hospitals and schools were robbed, they promised things that they could not fulfill in order to win elections. And the result is that an entire generation of Chubutans had, in the last four and a half years, barely a year of school cycle. They mortgaged and compromised the future of a generation of Chubutans and that is inexcusable,” added the candidate for governor.

For his part, the candidate for lieutenant governor of Chubut, Gustavo Menna, highlighted: “We started a change, no one deserves to live in a province where children do not have classes, where public works are not finished and where the towns of the interior do not have energy, nor the shame of seeing public officials being detained in a patrol car from Government House; We don’t deserve to have no future in a province that has fishing, tourism, hydrocarbons”.
“Under the leadership of ‘Nacho’ we are going to change the province,” stated Menna emphatically.
The candidate for mayor of Puerto Madryn, Daniel Laudonio, said: “We are happy to host this great event and that Nacho has given us the opportunity for Madryn to be the city that launches the campaign” and expressed that “we have a lot of to do and we have to do it together; I am going to work for my community and I know that Nacho and Gustavo are going to accompany me”.
