Adeje today is a cultural melting pot, a meeting place for people from all over the world, a place where people from diverse backgrounds have chosen to live together in peace and harmony. Together we have developed a tolerant society with respect for each other, but above all one which promotes consensus and solidarity.
Here in Adeje, as we look to 2014, we are working together to create a 21st century coexistence reflecting today’s multicultural, global society, a society that is part of the global village, a modern society linked by social networks.
So to all those in Adeje, including those who have come to live here from elsewhere, I extend an invitation to participate in celebrating Christmas here in Adeje, a place where everyone is welcome, a meeting place open to the whole world, where different religious beliefs and customs live side by side for the benefit of all. I hope that the different celebrations we will experience during this Christmas season will be precious moments where we can share our cultures, understand each other a little bit better and help each other a little bit more.
With that in mind I send heartfelt cordial Christmas greetings to everyone, and my greatest wish for the year ahead, and my promise to all is that we will continue to work along these lines, creating a borough where everyone is welcome, a borough that is prosperous, a tourist destination that creates jobs, employment, that is competitive, sustainable, and has a future. A future for our young people, a future for adults, a future for families, a future for everyone.
This promise I make as mayor, as well as wishing you all the best for 2014.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga
Mayor of Adeje
