Neighbors of Totana:
Last June our neighbors gave us the opportunity to represent them as CIVIL SOCIETY in the city hall.
A CIVIL SOCIETY represented by the civil platform â€śNOW TOTANAâ€ť;
that is working to try to fulfill each and every one of our electoral commitments, presenting a series of motions that serve to improve the coexistence, health, and well-being of all our neighbors.
A job in which we have tried to contribute the best of each one, also economically, to help our councilor in his task.
A job for the benefit of Totana and all totaneros, without boasting, without palm trees, without thinking about being in the lampstand or in the media.
Yesterday we fulfilled one of our promises:
Return the subsidy granted to our political group corresponding to 2019.
A grant that we have returned and that we will continue to give back throughout the entire legislature, because we have not needed it to work for Totana.
Those â‚¬ 1245.84 would be good for us to carry out our project, and the â‚¬ 9,200 that we would receive throughout the legislature would give us the opportunity to face the next election campaign with the same weapons, in which we could do big events, rent vehicles, buy advertising spaces and even hire consultants and staff.
But we sincerely believe it is money right now, where it is best in the municipal coffers and therefore in the pocket of citizens.
We would have liked to be able to choose the fate of that money, either for social, sports or any other purpose for the benefit of the neighbors but unfortunately it is impossible by regulation to allocate it for purposes other than the maintenance of the political group.
We hear criticism from councilors of the government team of â‚¬ 400 that the rest of the corporation charges for attending plenary sessions.
There is no charge for attending full only, it is charged for daily work preparing motions, attending meetings with groups and neighbors, studying the increasingly convoluted municipal plenary sessions, and many more activities.
Paradoxically we do not listen to the same protests for the money received by the political groups.
To say that we respect those who do not return this subsidy, even if we do not share their attitude, because we think that the current situation of our town hall is not to be detached from â‚¬ 171,200, which is distributed among all political groups throughout the entire legislature and that They could be used for many other things.
There would be no need to sell any official car to buy vehicles adapted for our elderly and disabled, we could buy 3.
A medicalized ambulance could be purchased and maintained.
Campaigns could be done to prevent drug addiction and gambling.
They could help the reintegration of these groups.
In short, that money could be allocated to many projects and actions for the benefit of citizens.
Let everyone draw their own conclusions.
