Raúl Granero, new mayor of Cóbdar

The councillor of Cóbdar, Raúl Granero, has been sworn in as mayor of this municipality. The president of the Provincial Council, Javier A. García, attended the municipal plenary session in which Granero took over the mayoralty following the resignation as mayor of José Fuentes, who will continue as a councillor within the government team.

Raúl Granero is 50 years old, an engineer and works at Drago Extinción de Incendios. His father, Miguel Granero, was mayor of this municipality between 1999 and 2003 and his grandfather was also secretary of this town council in the Sierra de los Filabres. Granero made his debut as a councillor in the current legislature and is passionate about sport.

The plenary session began with the constitution of the age table formed by the oldest and youngest councillor assisted by the Secretary; after the investiture speech, Granero asked the President of the Diputación to speak in this plenary session.

The President of the Diputación was proud to be able to accompany the residents of Cóbdar on this special day and dedicated a few words to José Fuentes: “Dear José, you have done an excellent job during all these years in which you have given yourself to others through your vocation of public service, earning the affection and admiration of all the people of Cóbdar. You have been an approachable mayor who has been concerned about every problem your neighbours have presented to you as if it were your own, providing solutions and, above all, listening. Because that is one of the main tasks of a mayor, even more so in a small town, to know how to listen and that the neighbours know that, in the face of any difficulty, their mayor will be there to be the first to support them”.

He also assured that Raúl will be a great mayor because he has the support and experience of José and his own father: “That experience, your confidence as a sportsman and the complicity and affection of all the neighbours will make you a great mayor. A period is now opening up that the municipal corporation and all the neighbours must assume with enthusiasm to continue conquering the future and for towns like Cóbdar to continue growing. With a corporation that, beyond political acronyms, remains united in everything that is beneficial for all the people of Cóbdar”.

Finally, he stressed that the municipality can and will count on the support of the Provincial Institution: “In this new period, and as we have done so far, you can count on the Diputación de Almería as your strongest ally to continue creating services and infrastructure to improve the quality of life in Cóbdar. As in those great projects that you have underway and that aim to promote tourism. I am referring to the future rural accommodation or the swimming pool. Projects that will boost the municipality by attracting visitors and prosperity to take advantage of all that Cóbdar has to offer”, he added.

Raúl Granero thanked the authorities and neighbours for their presence and expressed his pride in being able to “represent my town, respond to my neighbours, and listen to them”. He also recalled that “We are one of the smallest villages, we all know each other, our children play in the street, our houses have open doors because there is a value that resides in this town: trust”.

In addition, the newly invested mayor thanked the president and deputies for their presence and the support of the council: “We face the hotel, the new pool, the niches and cultural and sporting activities that give life to our people.

On the other hand, he thanked the mayors for their support with their attendance and assured that “working together we will go far and the work of civil servants who give sanity to our ideas”.
