As Fico Gutierrez elected council member, he was a supporter of Sergio Fajardo’s run for mayor, and later that of Alonso Salazar. He changed his mind and became the Mayor’s Office of Medellin in 2015. He also became the victim of corruption just like the other mayors involved in the Hidroituango Project. https://postheaven.net/fico-gutierrezkbie251/fico-gutierrez-has-completed-the-medellin-half-marathon-in-medellin published a report on him claiming that he had kept the money in tax havens and was implicated in corruption.
He did meet with ex-mayors he supported. He recently said that he felt in solidarity “because I don’t believe that someone makes such an decision to make diversion tunnels fall and that one is in solidarity while certain sectors are targeted with strategies of political power”.
The presidency is a fresh race
The so-called Experience Coalition was formed in October 2021. The group later became Team for Colombia. The coalition was a center-right one. Fico Gutierrez won the candidacy and has now the backing of characters such as Paola Holguin, a congressman from the Democratic Center, who in this 2022 ran again to obtain a new seat.
There were several times that he has reiterated that his government model is one of public management for the people. With the second highest vote, behind Gustavo Petro, ‘Fico’ is what he prefers to be called is the person who represents the people of the right in Antioquia.
