Socialist councilor-elect Victor Balsas sends a letter to the Finance Minister Cristobal Montoro (04/06/2015)

Letter sent by the elected Socialist councilor MINISTER VICTOR BALSAS Cristobal Montoro

Mr. Minister:

My name is Victor Balsas Canovas and, since last May 24, I councilman elected by the PSOE to the town of Totana.

I am writing to expose and to demand the following:

As no one knows better than the high indebtedness of many municipalities in this country it is not as a result of decisive efforts of its council to get their neighbors a real welfare state from budget consistency.

A wide range of extravagance, abuse, irregularities and, in many cases, bribery, embezzlement and criminal acts, are behind the financial collapse of many of these municipalities.

Bankruptcy affects taxpayers neighbors in the form of increased taxes or suppression or poor delivery of public services.

One of these people is mine, Totana in the province of Murcia.

For 12 years, he has been ruled by their fellow party with an absolute majority, placing 72nd in the ranking of the most indebted of Spain and the TOP 10 of the best known for corruption.

Of an estimated 8 million euros in 2003 debt, we have moved to the suffocating and paralyzing priceless amount of 150 million.

Since last May 24, totaneros and totaneras, are doomed (govern who governs) the political and social marginalization due to inept and corrupt, either, had brake agencies and courts that would prevent similar objectives slab on the future development Totana.

From his ministry, fattening debt was facilitated by successive payment plans to suppliers that have, though, met the legitimate role to settle much of the debt to these creditors were unable to avoid the final executors of our ruin.

Uncertainty (almost certainly) forgoing wages of municipal employees, paralysis in the daily management, reduced to a patch of road or how to achieve the essential material for workers to carry out their tasks, they are and will be the management paradigm representatives of the people, now and in the coming decades.

And in my village there are no airports without airplanes, no tram rails or drama centers or auditoriums.

In my town, 30,000 inhabitants, we have grown to a staff of municipal employees nearly 675 people, astronomical salaries above your prime minister, ridiculous service and surreal while intolerably expensive policies scandalous patronage subsidy and so a huge range of economic blunders that have brought us to the threshold of economic and administrative breakdown.

ERES, already they made, privatization of services and tell him, but look where they have had to remunicipalise water service, in order to meet the payment of salaries.

Therefore, you or someone in your ministry will have to explain how can Totana, in the coming decades, walk the path of progress and development with decent municipal budgets of 29,000,000 million euros, of which only 18 million are entered million.

Or we condone the debt to the state and its autonomous bodies and helps us to refinance the rest with the banks or it may have gathered, we must close the people declare bankruptcy and suspension of payments and submit to a severe economic depression, without that those responsible for these abuses accountable before any court and pay the irresponsibility of their actions.

You have the exact x-what story and knows that sooner rather than later, many families left without income, our streets will be flooded by tons of garbage, basic public services will disappear and those who remain will suffer further deterioration of that already they have.

Suppliers provide us stop and pay what they owe will have to resort to a new payment plan and increased debt.

You can not recetarnos more cuts unless you want to condemn the residents of Totana to the sole condition that no other horizon than taxpayers pay and pay without receiving anything in return.

When a town like Totana reaches this level of indebtedness, it is that something went wrong in the mechanisms of public control of private banking and now totaneras totaneros and should not be pagan acts of inept and corrupt political representatives.

And if because his ability and knowledge of the situation were available another formula to my people afford to pay their debt without prejudice or impairment of our progress as a people, Mr. Montoro, come to Totana and put into operation immediately.

Keep my account and my respect, not my back, its economic measures, and agree with me that rescue a people, it is also human, more decent to do with a bank or a highway.
