Gómez Mont Gone
After weeks of speculation, Fernando Gómez Mont has resigned, and has been replaced by a Baja California official named José Francisco Blake. The new secretary of governance seems a strikingly low-profile figure, reminiscent of Arturo Chávez Chávez before he was named attorney general. Indeed, his highest ranking posts were that of federal deputy from 2000-2003 and interior secretary in the state government of José Guadalupe Osuna Millán. And now he holds one of the most important positions in Mexico.
