In late July, the Puerto Peñasco City Council approved a request to rename Blvd. Fremont in honor of the late Dr. Francisco Javier Carrillo Ruiz given his years of professional service and altruistic actions in the healthcare field. Dr. Carrillo Ruiz passed away earlier this summer amidst caring for the community of Puerto Peñasco during the present Covid-19 pandemic in his role as Director of the Municipal Civil Protection Unit and Fire Department.
Mayor Ernesto Kiko Munro thanked the Council for the approved measure, noting, “Once the late Dr. Carrillo Ruíz adopted Puerto Peñasco as his home, Puerto Peñasco adopted him as one of the community’s most selfless individuals.”
Following the request of Isabel Cristina Ledezma of Puerto Peñasco, the Council decided to recognize Carrillo Ruíz’s valuable contributions to his adopted community by renaming one of its main boulevards.
