In addition, he stressed that “in the context of current politics, the figure of Miguel becomes relevant.”
Then, who made use of the word was the councilor Garibaldiwho was deeply moved. “Miguel left us with a very high bar for his very high commitment to Santa Fe, that’s why from Santa Fe we wanted to pay him a warm tribute”.
“He honored politics with commitment and honesty. He was a person with great projects and values”said the mayor and added that “Miguel left us great teachings.”
Later, the councilor of the Más Santa Fe block, John Joseph Piedrabuenathanked Lifschitz and Clara García “for making our cumbia great through the cumbia festival that takes place every year”. Who was also visibly moved was the councilor of the FPCyS, Laura Mondino, who recognized “The journey, the work and the commitment” that Miguel Lifschitz had with the city of Santa Fe.
“He toured the province from end to end, he did not leave a city without going and despite the difficult surname he entered the hearts of the people of Santa Fe,” said the mayor, who also resorted to a famous text by Galeano, Fuegos: “Each person shines with their own light among all the others. There are not two equal fires. There are big fires and small fires and fires of all colors. There are people of serene fire, who don’t even notice the wind, and there are people of crazy fire, who fill the air with sparks. Some fires, silly fires, do not light or burn; but others burn with so much energy that you can’t look at them without blinking, and whoever gets close, lights up “.
Due to a trip to Europe, the mayor of Santa Fe, Emilio Jatoncould not be present at the tribute, but sent a letter that was read by Leandro González. “Anniversaries, dates that marked us for some reason, are always moments that move us. They force us to rethink ourselves, they force balances, but they also make us remember the best of each story “, begins the text written by the mayor”he pointed.
“Miguel’s story is, to a large extent, the story of our province. I invite you to make the effort to think about Miguel and not see in the background the new Iturraspe hospital, Cemafé, the wingers, the schools or the smiling people”, highlighted the head of the Executive, adding: “Today we remember Miguel and we do it thinking about the examples that he left us and the most important, I think, was that of putting himself at the service of the men and women of Santa Fe. Many of us who are here have, as he had, the mandate of the people, that is why Miguel has to be a constant reminder that we must never lose sight of what our commitment is.”
