Medellin and Antioquia start 2020 with new mayor and governor
The elected mayor of Medellin, Daniel Quintero began his term with a spiritual meeting and a tour in Santo Domingo. Around 6:00 p.m. He will take over as the new ruler of the city. On his Twitter account he shared the first images of the day, where he also had a meeting with the elected governor of Antioquia, Aníbal Gaviria. Both have chosen iconic places as symbol to assume the rule of the city and the department.
A las 6:00 a.m. en Santo Domingo Sabio cumplí mi promesa de pedirle a Dios en el cerro de La Cruz para que nos dé sabiduría guiando a Medellín durante estos cuatro años. #MedellínFuturo pic.twitter.com/Kklhc9OGHr

Quintero will do it on “Avenida del Ferrocarril”, between the University of Antioquia and the building of Ruta N. This is a symbol of its commitment to education and technology and the purpose of turning the city into a Software Valley.
Around 2:00 p.m., Anibal Gaviria assumed as governor in Parques del Río, a project that was one of his main urban projects during his mayor’s term in Medellín. This space, which has no scandal free due to its costs and delays, can represent the vision of the public infrastructure that the governor will have.
