Noelia Arroyo (PP), re-elected mayoress of Cartagena

Noelia Arroo CartagenaThe ‘popular’ Noelia Arroyo has just been re-elected as mayor of Cartagena. She will govern the port city for the next four years thanks to the 10 councillors obtained in the last elections, but she will do so in a minority, not having reached an absolute majority and not having reached agreements with any other party.

The newly sworn-in mayor of Cartagena, Noelia Arroyo, has pledged to lead a permanent dialogue with all the political groups represented in the twelfth municipal corporation to obtain the support she needs to develop the programme that received the most votes in the 28-M elections. And he has announced that he will incorporate the best ideas of the rest of the groups, promoting a permanent dialogue that goes beyond the monthly meeting of the ordinary plenary sessions.

In fact, she has announced that her first official meetings as mayor will be next Monday with each of the heads of the City Council’s groups’ lists.

During the speech he gave after taking office, Arroyo highlighted as fundamental lines of his government action the promotion of training as a path to full employment and to complete the modernisation of public services, with new contracts for street lighting, gardens and maintenance; in addition to preparing a new cleaning contract to overcome the limitations of the current one, which will be 30 years old; and to improve the public transport contract.

He has also pledged to seek the greatest possible consensus in the plenary session to promote the new General Urban Development Plan, which “must allow for sustainable growth in Cartagena, expand the possibilities of obtaining affordable housing in any part of the municipality, support the growth of business activity and organise and guarantee the major infrastructures. It must also protect the environmental values of our municipality, especially those of the Mar Menor”.

The mayor assured that “whoever governs” will maintain her style of “demanding collaboration” with all the administrations to speed up investments “which are essential for us and which have suffered delays and blockages that hinder the development of Cartagena”, and he mentioned the high speed train and the Mediterranean Corridor, the ZAL of Los Camachos, Barlomar, or “the development between the port and the city to renovate the seafront, the creation of a service and leisure area in El Espalmador that includes a beach and that, of course, excludes the CATE”; as well as the City of Justice and the recovery of the Mar Menor.

“With respect but firmly we will continue to demand unity and coordination in the protection of the Mar Menor. We demand definitive measures to cut off the entry of fresh water containing nitrates. This is the identified cause of the problems of the Mar Menor and the efforts of the administrations must focus on remedying it”.

He also pledged to defend the countryside, whose main threat is the cut in the water transfer. For this reason, he announced that the Government of Cartagena will continue to take legal action against the cut in the Tajo-Segura water transfer.
