After the extraordinary plenary session where it has been debated to enable the investment of the 2017 municipal surplus, and the approval of the budget project of 2018, the spokesperson for Citizens in Cartagena, Manuel Padín, has informed regarding the surplus that "MC and Podemos have been left alone in their efforts to wear down the Government of Cartagena not supporting the authorization of the almost 13 million euros of the surplus of 2017 to repay debt, pay suppliers, and invest in neighborhoods and councils.

On the other hand, Manuel Padín thanked the pressure exerted by the Federation of Neighborhood Associations of Cartagena, and the neighborhood groups of Santa Lucia, Lo Campano and Los Mateos, Santiago Urbanization, "we are sure that without their public pressure, the Popular Party it would not have rectified its decision and supported the investment of the surplus for the execution of the pending works of the participatory budgets, and for the neighborhoods and councils that need it the most ".

The spokesman for Citizens explained that thanks to the agreement reached between Cs and the municipal government, "an investment commitment has also been included for the Fénix Plan for comprehensive intervention in the Los Mateos neighborhood, and the improvement and expansion of the Vía Verde of Barrio Peral ".

The municipal accounts of 2018 have gone ahead with the votes in favor of PSOE, PP, MC and Ciudadanos and the Plenary has supported that all the amendments Citizens have registered have been included.

In this way, the orange training has managed to reserve 300,000 euros for the next few months to build a pedestrian access and the construction of a free public parking opposite the Santa Lucia Hospital, and 120,000 euros to increase the budget of the Local Development Agency and Employment to undertake a new program to combat long-term unemployment, strengthen the employment observatory and initiate a plan to support entrepreneurs that the Association of Young Entrepreneurs of Cartagena has designed.

In addition, according to the agreement reached, the Government has committed to carry out the 2017 amendment of Citizens for the refurbishment of Beatas Street and its adjacent ones for 350,000 euros.

Municipal auditor

It is public that Ciudadanos never liked the decision to place a socialist exoter and militant as municipal auditor, "we have never questioned his professional competence or his curriculum, but his political card, it is really complicated to expect neutrality and impartiality in an active political agent, that is why in the agreement signed with the local government we have included the summoning of the work posts of the City Council for officials with national qualification, equating the remuneration to the rest of the municipalities, to avoid that the squares return to be deserted ", has explained Manuel Padín.

The ridicule of PP

According to Manuel Padín, "the position of the Popular Party today in the Plenary has caused us a frightful shame of others, after publicly ensuring that all its amendments were non-negotiable, after seeing how the Plenary rejected almost all of them, as some were unviable and others because they coincided with the investment chapters of other parties, he has voted in favor of the budget. "

"The ridicule that the spokesman of the Popular Party has made today is something I do not wish even my worst enemy," said Padín, who understands "that the PP has been overtaken by the social clamor that was breathed in Cartagena and that He demanded that Cartagena already had a budget, they did not know where to put their heads and they voted in favor without negotiating, without working, without dialogue, only to avoid possible public criticism. "

"The PP has joined the approval of the budget in exchange for nothing, free, when all the fish was sold, probably with the intention that Citizens does not look like what we have been: a decisive game to reach consensus."
