The balance between management and efficiency was the idea defended by João Doria, mayor of São Paulo, in a lecture on Friday, 5. The event, promoted by Fecomércio SC and Florianópolis City Hall, brought together more than 300 guests from all over the State at Fiesc.
During the meeting, a cooperation protocol was signed for the sharing of innovative practices of municipal public management between Florianópolis and São Paulo. With the responsibility of leading the largest Brazilian city, João Doria talked about the challenges and learnings of the last five months. "We have accomplished in 120 days, 56 programs, advancing in the city of São Paulo during this period," he said, while advocating efficient public management, with investments in health, urban mobility and increased privatizations.
The mayor added that there is a long way for the changes to take place: "We have many challenges, a lot to do and I have to acknowledge that we have just started, we started well, in fact, the evaluation of our government is good."
On the possibility of disputing the next presidential election, Doria was incisive: "I was elected to be mayor for four years and the best contribution I can make to the Brazilian democracy, those who voted for me and those who did not vote is to be a good mayor, that's my concern at the moment."
