Note from PSOE:
Councilwoman Elizabeth Casalduero socialist program called the Fair and Festival of this year's "mediocre" and "unimaginative."
Said the policy "anti-cultural" CP has been reflected in a reduction of over 30% in its budget, which is a new punishment to the popular holiday town.
Casalduero not assess the quality of the performances scheduled because "there colored tastes," but criticized the negative consequences of the drastic drop in the budget of the Fair, while regretting that the crisis "always pay them."
He said that in other nearby municipalities themselves will enjoy a celebration "decent" and that Lorca is losing, "too fast" regarding its regional qualifier.
On the Transfer of fair concerts traditionally held in the Plaza de Toros in a lot of Hotel Jardines de Lorca, the socialist mayor called the decision "incomprehensible, hasty and unwarranted."
He said the place of all is a traditional site with character reference for Lorca and "shocked by" the technical and safety issues raised by the PP government team at the site when there have been large concerts like Ennio Morricone with a philharmonic orchestra.
He therefore asked that reports be made public, according to the PP, advise the removal of actions from this cause.
It was also asked if Francisco Jódar think banning bullfighting plaza because it lacks the necessary security.
On this subject, he recalled that the only incident Lorca lived in the arena did last year for lack of foresight of the government team when developing an evacuation plan in case of rain.
On the new location, Casalduero criticized the government team did not respect the elderly living in the residence located at the back of the resort.
Finally, the socialist mayor asked the City Council consider the multitude of works in progress, and traffic and parking chaos that may ensue.
Therefore called for strengthening the system of free buses to the Garden of the Wheel, as well as running through the parishes, "without forgetting any, as Zarzadilla de Totana so many years without having a means of transport carrying the young people to visit the fair without having to take the car. "
Also asked to articulate the necessary mechanisms to minimize the parking problems by increasing the number of park and ride free.
He recalled that last year enabled the City Council for this purpose a plot opposite the fairgrounds, which was then exploited by an individual who took the parking "at the price of gold."
Casalduero called this practice "almost indecent" because the session was the gain of this particular, while the conditioning of the space ran "in charge of all Lorca."
Casalduero also conducted an assessment of Espirelia'09 and said he suspects that attendance figures at the concerts offered by the councilman of Culture in office, Joaquin Ruiz Montalbán, are "inflated" and, nevertheless, are "ridiculous."
He said the festival this year was "unworthy" of a city that had turned into national cultural landmark, and the Local Government's policy of PP in this area is becoming the "laughing stock" of the entire region.
In this regard, also regretted the lack of support from the Autonomous Region which it has contributed to the festivals in Murcia, Cartagena and San Javier have been a success.
He also criticized the "suppression" of Espirelia as it was conceived, has given "the last straw" to shops and local hospitality, they had in the summer festival an important source of wealth.
