As Councilman, he supported the city’s mayorship of Sergio Fajardo and later that of Alonso Salazar. He was elected to the Mayor’s Office of Medellin, moving his focus to the year 2015. But, as with all mayors who had to face the Hidroituango project, he had controversies because of corruption. Daniel Coronell published a report on him claiming that he had hid the money in tax havens and was implicated in corruption.

Actually, he confronted former mayors he been a supporter of. He recently stated, “I have been standing in solidarity with those who are in the report because I don’t think that someone decides to make such a decision so that the tunnel of diversion falls. There is solidarity, and certain sectors have to be targeted by political strategies.”
