The mayor clarifies that his salary proposal to be discussed today in the Plenary represents a saving in relation to the previous Government Team of € 39,000 / year (15/07/2019)



"Tonight, among other issues, a Mayor's proposal on the dedications of politicians in the Municipal Structure will be studied and voted on in the Plenary, as we have promised in the electoral campaign and has been our argument, I propose a moderation and reduction in the spending of politicians.

Step to explain the proposal regarding "liberated"

Mayor: 2,714.29 euros month (gross) in 14 payments.

5 Deputy Mayor.

2,071.43 euros (gross) month in 14 payments.

This proposal supposes a saving in relation to the previous Government Team of 39,000 euros a year.

I recommend reviewing the report of Mrs. Interventora that enclosed and clarifies the entire proposal.

The Mayor's Lieutenants will receive (if approved) a little less than the councilors released until the month of May.

Read to the end, please

This proposal was delivered and explained to the Spokespeople several days ago, making me available to clarify or modify what they considered.

Today, July 15, no one has asked me anything or submitted amendments in the period that marks the ROF.


Simply for the following:

Because the agreement (PSOE GANAR TOTANA) of 2015 was to release the Mayor, the First Deputy Mayor and 5 councilors of the Municipal Government.

When we started the government, the PSOE comrades wanted to be liberated.

To which I refused in round because we could not exceed the salaries of politicians of the Previous Government.

("Released" plus Trust staff).

After almost two months of disagreements between them, of the 5 approved councilors, Ganar Totana "freed" Antonia and Agustín full-time and Lali part-time.

Halfway through the term, Inma replaced Lali in part-time work.

The PSOE, apart from Andrés, "liberated" 4: Ana, Gertru, Victor and, obviously, Carlos Ballester.

That is, they distributed two and a half salaries among four "liberated".

As they were distributed 2.5 among 4, they left less salary.

But that was his decision.

I hope this concept is clear before the disinformation or the anger of Carlos for having been on the verge of not being elected.

His anger is normal, because "the ballot boxes are loaded by the devil" and, sometimes, they do not value politicians as competent.

These things usually happen and we have to accept them as if we were athletes.

If everything is won to be the third, I imagine it must be a difficult to assimilate.

And let's not say of the "not elected".

Anyway ... things that happen.

In the annual calculation of expenditure, the total reduction is greater than 39,000 euros.

The Lieutenants of the mayor would charge a little less than the councilors in 2018. Logically since 2015, salaries have increased according to the law. Something that, it is supposed, goes in the DNA of the left.

Someone will think that this demagogic argument and trilero of salaries in politicians can give results to him and recover with the lie what the ballot boxes deny.

By the way;

Nobody questions the salaries of Regional Deputies?

A money that comes out of all pockets, like the Mayor or the councilors.

Nobody listens to fights in the Assembly from Podemos to VOX about their generous emoluments.

And it's just an example.

We can take a look at the agreements we see these days.

From Alhama, passing through Santomera and other municipalities.

Another thing is profitability.

Of which, if we are allowed, we will talk later. "

Juan José Cánovas, mayor of Totana
