    I received the following in an email correspondence and am trying to make sense of it. What would "está parada" mean in this sentence:

    "La señora alcaldesa está parada en que se continúe con el proceso…" ?

    I'm guessing that the mayor wants the process to continue. But I'd like to confirm this and also find out more about this expression "está parada."

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    I haven't heard that expression: está parada in this part of the country, but by context I'm pretty sure you're right. The meaning is that the alcaldesa is obsessed/determined/resolved to continue.

    Hope it helps :)
