Do you remember the dog in the gardener? Surely: He who neither eats nor lets eat. Well, something like this happens to the PP of Xàbia with the projects that were not able to move forward when they had the opportunity (and the obligation) and that are now going to come true.
In 2005, when they ruled in Xàbia and in the Generalitat, they signed a commitment to build a municipal swimming pool in our town. Then the economic crisis had not yet erupted and administrative procedures for public works were substantially easier than now. That is, they had the money, the means and the opportunity. But they failed. They stayed in a first stone that must be there, buried somewhere.
The fact is that now, 14 years later, they see that the pool is going to be done with governments of the PSOE in Xàbia and in the Generalitat. And they are not managing it with political sportsmanship. So instead of joining this collective triumph, they put sticks on the wheel. They do not accept that the economic context and administrative norms have changed and are more difficult. And that with all this, getting 3 million euros (at least; the government team will continue working to increase the amount) for a project whose maximum cost will be 5, is a great success for Xàbia.
If they had worked 14 years ago, with the same intensity with which they protest now, surely we would not have had to pay a single euro to achieve this project. But his party was then to other things that the Valencians and the courts already know.
Today, while the last steps are taken to build the pool, the works of the Auditorium continue their course. And the local PP forgets that they improvised a very expensive model to take it to the Municipal Music and Dance Board ("ací teniu l'auditori!") That stayed in nothing. Although the most serious thing is not that, the dramatic thing is that they lost a subsidy of about 60% of the Generalitat within the 92 Music program to build it. That is, if they had carried out a correct management, we would have left less than half the price as it happened in other towns of the Marina Alta. The model should be there too, next to the first stone of the pool.
Unlike then, this time Xàbia has fought for what is fair. We have worked together to defend the interests of citizens. We have not yielded and that is why the objective of having a quality cultural infrastructure is closer. The key is to have clear priorities, work every day and respect the word given. That is why, now that projects that are objectively positive for thousands of residents of this town do not vote, that they call "junk policy" to the fulfillment of the commitments and to the success in efforts in which they failed due to disability or neglect, it does not stop Give some pity.
We would like to share with all political groups these historical achievements for Xàbia, but for that they must make peace with their own past. Add instead of hinder.
Deputy Secretary and spokesperson of the local group of the PSOE of Xàbia
