Ponce Díaz has assured that "Mr. Gil Jódar has often had to ride with this occurrence when he started looking for volunteers for the Neighborhood Boards."
The Councilor for Citizen Participation of the City of Lorca, José Ángel Ponce, has been surprised at the statements made this morning by the spokesman of the popular municipal group.
Ponce has announced that "we will not accept lessons from a political party that decided not to support a municipal budget that, for the first time, contemplated a game aimed at the implementation of the Neighborhood Boards and that they now decide to claim."
The Edil has stressed that "of the Popular Party of Lorca we can expect very little but much less in matters of Citizen Participation. We cannot accept proposals in this area, they are not credible, because during twelve years of government they dedicated themselves to promising, insisting and to sell that they were going to set up Neighborhood Boards that never materialized because they neither wanted nor knew. "
Ponce Díaz has assured that "Mr. Gil Jódar has often had to ride with this occurrence when he went to look for volunteers for the Neighborhood Boards. Neither his own militants will believe it since he comes from a person who neither during his time as mayor or during his years as a councilman he was never able to put those Neighborhood Boards he now claims. "
The Councilor has denounced the realization of a claim "that they themselves have boycotted in that double standard of his so characteristic since we can not forget that it has been the PP who has blocked the municipal budget that we presented last January, in which tripled the game for Citizen Participation with two fundamental objectives: launching the Neighborhood Boards and Participatory Budgets, another initiative that the Popular Party was unable to implement. "
José Ángel Ponce has insisted that "they have never believed in the Neighborhood Councils, they have cheated the Lorca and Lorca and selling smoke and now, from the opposition, they remember to claim but that not even their own party partners will believe."
