"Políticos de pueblo" (05/12/2018)

There are many people who believe that street policy should always be the defense of the interests of neighbors by implementing initiatives that aim to improve their quality of life.

For a mayor or councilor of any municipality, defending the interests of their fellow citizens is to fight for everything that facilitates the daily life of the neighbors and improve infrastructures and services to obtain a harmony in their daily life.

I understand municipal policy as the instrument to meet the concerns of the common people, see their needs and address issues of transcendental importance and priority such as water supply, works and services, street lighting, medical, educational, cultural, social , of leisure,...

I think a mayor or councilor should be a manager and is that a city council, his government, is expected not to be prodigued with ideological approaches or philosophies but to keep the streets clean, to support as they deserve -economically through subsidies and technician with equipment and facilities - the activities of associations of all types of the municipality, committed to public safety, for an urbanism with a human face, responsible and sustainable, for a taxation nothing overwhelming for the pocket of the neighbors, ...

We all want the streets we live in are neat, that traffic is not chaos, that taxes do not bleed the pockets of families, businesses and businesses that create jobs, that there is no waste of pharaonic nonsense or corruption, ... That's what neighbors want to happen.

Something that should be considered as a sensible position at the municipal level.

It is not admissible and yes counterproductive for the governance of a municipality that is on the right track not to vote for effective, better people ...

The common perspective of the neighbors, a mayor and / or councilor should be concerned about realizing the functions that carry those charges or attributions.

A definition that would also have to include a personal trait, because, unfortunately, also in the life of a municipal government, it is necessary to face complex situations that, more often than not, cause the personal trajectory of an aedile to mix with politics.

Thus, the commitment to social improvement must head the agenda of every servant of the general interests of citizens.

There is always a difficult municipal task ahead, with many challenges and self-demands.

From the street we must be aware of the needs and opinions of the people.

Because carrying out day to day tasks of mayor and / or councilor is a great challenge, because first of all one is a person and neighbor and every representative of municipal life will want the best for their fellow citizens.

We start from a situation in which, in the mouths of neighbors of any town, it is commented: "something will get out, otherwise, it would not be there, the works and contracts are given to whoever they want", ... A string of comments that on many occasions they constitute the ordinary opinion of the street.

To dismantle these complaints, is to be legal, to make an acceptable local management, to talk every other day with the neighbors - leaving offices, carpets and ivory towers - to listen and accept their criticisms - quite often constructive and to be thankful-, all in a sample equally of proximity to the people, transparency and good work.

Sometimes it is good to hear that something has been done well, that every cent has been used to achieve projects for the benefit of all the neighbors, which has attracted many millions of euros for investments in the municipality, ...

It must be hard for those politicians of race, vocational, dedicated body and soul 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to the good government of a municipality to perceive this disaffection, that detachment of citizens.

In most cases the candidates to the lists are presented without any personal interest, but simply to bring to a successful conclusion an acceptable when not excellent work for our neighbors.

There are many who give their time to what they want and seek the benefit for their citizens.

In short, for a town politician, the most rewarding thing is to be able to make dreams, projects, and illusions come true, to have an electoral program go forward in the four years of the legislature and see how the neighbors improve their well-being.

As the admired socialist politician Enrique Múgica said, "democracy is the clarity with which problems are exposed and the existence of means to solve them".

We want to think that no mayor or councilman is at the head of a town hall to receive praise, on the contrary, he is there for the love of his people, because he does not want the municipality to stagnate, paralyze or go under.

A mayor or councilor proposes that his town has the maximum achievements and improvements for each inhabitant who gives life to that municipality and try to attract new people who fix their residence in the town.
