Domingo Trabalón: “Our first measure has been to reduce political spending by 20,000 euros”.

Domingo Trabalón took measures affecting the City Council’s finances in his first plenary session.

The mayor of Zurgena Domingo Trabalón, who was elected on 28th May with an absolute majority in the municipality, made his debut on Wednesday at midday as president of the municipal plenary session.

Twelve points on the agenda allowed, among other things, the formation of the municipal groups and spokespersons, setting the frequency of the plenary sessions, the creation of the local government board and the recognition of the dedications of the three free people that the Town Council will have, “two less than the previous corporation”, stressed the new mayor.

In this sense, Trabalón highlighted the value of the policy of cutting political spending; “in this legislature we are saving 20,000 euros a year in political salaries, with two fewer free officials than the previous corporation. With that money we can attend to many needs in our town”.

“In my case, I will receive around 2,300 euros a month for dedicating myself exclusively to the Town Council. I am a nurse by profession and my salary is around that figure, although I would earn 2,800 euros for on-call duty”, he assured those attending the plenary session with pay slip in hand.

In the plenary session, Trabalón reminded the opposition group (PSOE) that “you have even hired us groups for the fiestas, but there is no money to pay them. In the drawers there are invoices for more than 300,000 euros and many others that we are trying to find out what they are about. To this must be added payments of more than 200,000 euros that were made between 29 May and 17 June, and we will find out to whom and for what purpose they were made.

With regard to the finalist funds, “there should be 838,000 euros of real balance in the municipal coffers and we have detected that 338,000 euros are missing and we are seeing what they have been spent on. You can’t use finalist funds to pay bills or political salaries.

“They have taken four latest generation mobile phone terminals that belong to the Town Hall and we are going to reclaim them. Because they weren’t there, not even the baton was there. I had to take over as mayor of Zurgena with a stick lent to me by the mayor of Tíjola. It is a pity about the disastrous management of the money of all the people of Zurgena,” said the new mayor, who in the first week of his mandate “is already 700,000 euros short and we still haven’t finished looking at all the papers and accounts of the Town Hall.
