Citizens also urged the local government to study the possibility and the feasibility of a permanent detachment of the local police in the characteristics of the Neighborhood Association of La Aljorra facilities
Cartagena, 31 March- Thursday.
Socialist Deputy Mayor Ana Belén Castejon today has been rejected in the municipal plenary with the votes of PP, CTSSP-We can and Citizens.
In this municipal group we believe that the lost money (about 700,000 euros) for training courses for the unemployed in Cartagena that was offering the SEF has not been justified, nor has it had so far no consequence when it is the highest municipal authority employment and training, nor has duly justified the hiring of Alfonso Sahuquillo as secretary of the Socialist Municipal Group, (payroll pay all cartageneros and requires exclusive dedication) when it has been shown that this person lived in Madrid and could not properly carry out their work, and finally, we also find it unacceptable that the illegal construction of a swimming pool by his party colleague, councilman Francisco Aznar, shall be settled at the time with the classic 'and you more' when Mrs. Castejon he justified his companion recalling a similar case that had as its protagonist the Minister of Health in 2010, Maria Angeles Palacios.
From Citizens believe that all these facts, assessed as a whole, deserve the reprobation of Deputy Mayor Ana Belén Castejon.
Cease director of the ADLE
In other motions, Citizens Cartagena has requested that the City of Cartagena urge the Governing Board of the Local Development Agency and Employment to cease its director, Diego Peñarrubia, as it is directly responsible for the accumulation of errors committed in certain calls Employment Service and training and resulted in the loss of about 700,000 euros in funding for training courses to long-term unemployed in Cartagena.
The motion was approved by the municipal groups PP, CTSSP-We can and Citizens.
The spokesman for Citizens Cartagena, Manuel Padin, wanted to clarify that "although the mayor of Cartagena has tried to mislead the public by saying that the House is not competent to cease or not this man, Cartagena need to be clear that what adopted today is that the City Council urge the Governing Council to cease the director of the ADLE, and that clearly is competent, and it now has an obligation to do so. "
Nine proposals from Citizens
Citizens Cartagena presented at the municipal plenary session today to nine initiatives and proposals, including urged the local government to study the possibility and the feasibility of a permanent detachment of the local police on site of the Association of Residents of La aljorra.
The safety of our neighbors in the councils that have been enduring a while now the wave of robberies and violent assaults should be a priority on the political agenda of local government.
We have also urged, through a plea, that the City communicated to the competent authorities the suitability of looking elsewhere for the shipment of radioactive waste Palomares than the Port of Cartagena.
A few months ago was the news of the agreement concluded between Spain and the United States to decontaminate the land of Palomares, after the plane crash 50 years ago public.
This agreement states that 50,000 cubic meters of radioactive land still in the Andalusian village will be transferred to the United States, and that the port to ship this waste will be to Cartagena.
Citizens from Cartagena, consider a mistake to use the port of our city to ship these materials when other ports closer Palomares, Almeria and Carboneras ports or Garrucha.
With this option, the risks would be reduced, as 6,000 trucks intended for transport of toxic material should go a third of the distance, it is that Cartagena is located 100 kilometers from Palomares, while Carboneras is just over 30 kilometers, is even closer to that of Garrucha, only 10 kilometers.
We also believe that in this way the economic cost of this process is considerably reduced.
As has been happening since the start of the legislature, the answers to our questions has been quite incomplete and evasive.
Today in Parliament we have requested explanations from the Councillor for Education for not having convened yet, as is mandatory, the Municipal School Board.
The council has not justified this matter and has only indicated that they are involved in changing the regulation itself, a matter on which from this moment we will be very vigilant.
Another unanswered questions has been the detailed breakdown of the municipal subsidy to the Federation of Associations of Parents of Cartagena for tax advice of AMPAS.
Not only we still do not know the nature of the contest to award the grant to a company, but to our surprise, we are told that that subsidy have withdrawn the efforts to adapt to associations to comply with the rules on data protection .
Nor do we know how much is the individual amount of service for each association.
We regret that the local government with their votes, has prevented the inclusion in the Bureau of the Manifesto Phoenix of one representative from each Municipal Group in the city of Cartagena, and refusal to enable as multipurpose space a plot of municipal ownership in the cartagenera deputation of Miranda.
Decisions that we do not share, and against our arguments in the present and in the future.
