detail of Totana


The mayor said that "transparency is never bad in a free society" (02/05/2016)

"In the government team there are no" dirt "because we are honest people. It is clear and can not deny that there are divergent views on very important issues such as the General Plan or how to tackle the economic situation.

These differences or problems are solved by talking, uncovered nothing to neighbors and looking for meeting points from the debate and confrontation of ideas.

It is clear that PSOE and IU WIN TOTANA are two very different projects, but not an obstacle to a much-needed understanding.

I do not share the idea that a debate between the government team will favor the PP in its irresponsible, cynical and hypocritical attitude.

This council is sunk and with little chance for guilt and responsibility of the Popular Party after 12 years of misrule.

Also, why not say, for the responsibility of those who have given an absolute majority in the polls three times.

Auparlos should they be returned to power, they would fall into the contradiction of "Stockholm Syndrome".

Whereby the victim (the suffering people of Totana) empathizes with his "Executioner" (PP).

Once cleared the doubt that the current mayor does not respect the culprit of the situation, step by recounting the most important episodes of this crisis that we will overcome:

- In October 2015, the Plenum, without dissenting vote, asked the Ministry of Finance an advance of 6.3 million euros.

It was a "bitter" dish, that decision because the Central Government imposed us to change an adoption of measures concretized in the obligation to submit an adjustment plan on municipal finances before 29 April 2016. I imagine that all / as we knew it that we voted and commitment.

- That money would serve to pay a portion of the large debts left by the PP.

Iberdrola, with the threat of power outage in schools and municipal institutions.

The company garbage collection, with workers 4 months without pay and strike, EULEN, dealership Cleaning Interior and dozens of small companies, businesses and freelancers who had their businesses threatened by the nonpayment and neglect Popular party.

- As it has done in other areas of government, from the Treasury should have been preparing the Plan of Adjustment and taking steps to fulfill our commitment to the Treasury and redirect the financial situation that every day go to more debt and imbalance.

Changes in municipal intervention and other problems have been the cause of the delay.

- For weeks, and given the warning of the Ministry of Finance, from the government team and the Technical Intervention, we have been discussing measures to specify in the Adjustment Plan with clear differences have very different concepts of economic management.

- As the deadline to present in Madrid, via Digital Platform, the Adjustment Plan approved by the regular plenary session to be held on April 28.

- On April 27 afternoon, after several meetings of the parties and of the government team, the proposed adjustment plan by the First Deputy Mayor, Councillor of Finance and the Mayor is signed.

That same night, the mayor orders the documentation sent to the Opposition that he was already far behind.

Salgo at 22 am Town Hall, on April 27, yet finished and ready, Mrs. Comptroller report and all technical studies.

- What it is my surprise when at 7.30 am on 28 April, the Comptroller tells me that the Councillor of Finance had ordered him to stop the delivery of documents already signed.

An hour later they served on the Mayor, the Deputy Mayor and Councillor of Finance, saying that the night before, had met urgently "Executive of the PSOE" and had agreed not to support the plan they had signed with me that day.

- I propose an "amendment" I consider was not acceptable because did not qualify nor was informed by intervention and not because Win Totana and the Mayor, after months of delay, we would change our position on the "Orders of the Executive of the PSOE" .

Do not mention it.

Ls confirm that the mayor will continue with the plan already drawn up by both parties, with technical approval and where their signatures will be changed by the Acalde who is responsible for the Proposed Adjustment Plan immediately sent to the opposition (PP and Citizens).

- That adjustment plan is rejected in plenary 28 (early 29) by the votes of PP and PSOE (13) and with the votes in favor of WIN TOTANA and Citizens (7).

Thus the Ministry is reported on April 29: Totana City Council has not approved the Adjustment Plan as agreed when he was awarded the advance.

- I Not in the plenary debate or the interview with the mayor on television on Friday made a single demonstration attacking the PSOE.

At this same meeting, I had to stoically endure the criticism of the Opposition (PP and Citizens) for providing information with so little margin of time.

Rightly meanwhile, I publicly accountable for that failure when it was not my fault.

- What it is my surprise when I read the statement of the PSOE and demonstrations by members of the Executive, with Alfonso Martinez Bathrooms to head, criticizing the mayor "for wanting to raise taxes and privatize water service".

Demonstrations and fabrications that this mayor is not going to allow anyone, much less to "Executive The" who waited to give orders to his councilors, when everything was signed and ready eve of the plenary.

- After this episode, the Ministry could claim 6.3 million euros and put the City on the edge of a very serious situation Intervention by the Ministry of Finance and unable to pay suppliers or ornot payroll.

I hope is not like that.

This is the story of the events that are of interest to my neighbors / as and I will not allow anyone misrepresents or want to take advantage (PP) of a situation that is the sole responsibility of the Right who has ruled 12 years ruining this town for decades .

My concept of government of the people is that the mayor and council members are elected by the residents to provide solutions and explain the problems with transparency who pay the consequences of actions and irresponsible governments.

If the City were involved, decisions would take other, unceremoniously, and representatives of the people and the same people would have failed and would pay dearly.

For these reasons, I have fulfilled and will fulfill my responsibility and commitment. "
