During his term in office, he established the guidelines to grant access to information to all people, in accordance with articles 10 and 12, responding in detail or in-depth to any queries from citizens. He thinks it is important to be the link with the requests, representing the government, and ensuring that the information is made known to the public, as well as supervising that everyone fulfills their responsibility of classifying, organizing, and presenting the information.
According to our ExaUDEM, San Nicolás de los Garza was the first municipality in the country to have a transparency page and it was also the first to have a citizen council that is 100% represented by citizens.
During his term in office, emphasis was put on the fact that the average response time to citizens was 5 days, but they committed themselves to responding within 3 days since they had pledged to improve the response time to requests and queries from citizens as Carlos considered it was very important to have the information and convey it to the citizen in due time and form.
