He Socialist Josele González has revalidated the Mayor’s Office de Mijas this Saturday after adding the support of Ciudadanos (Cs) and the elected candidate of Por Mi Pueblo, Juan Carlos Maldonado, in an investiture plenary session in which it has been marked as a challenge to face access to housing and make the municipality ” the economic and employment engine of the province”.
The recently re-elected councilor thanked the commitment of the new government team and especially the councilors of Ciudadanos, José Carlos Martín and Mariló Olmedo Olmedo, and the councilor of Por Mi Pueblo, Juan Carlos Maldonado, “for their commitment to Mijas and for put the interests of mijeños above the initials to reach an agreement that will provide stability to the city.”
During his investiture speech, González has alluded to the challenges facing the municipality during the present legislature, such as “access to housing“, just as he has opted to make Mijas “the economic and labor engine of the province of Malaga”.
As he pointed out, the pact “will allow continue developing necessary projects for Mijas as is the case of the urgent need for the construction of VPO housing, the improvement of health and educational infrastructures, the creation of a residence for the elderly or the improvement of sports facilities, among many others”.
Likewise, González has vindicated the electoral results achieved on May 28 “and in which the PSOE won the municipal elections again after 16 years, which demonstrates the good work carried out during this mandate despite having to face an unprecedented pandemic, all of which is the result of the effort and commitment of the government team that has accompanied me during this time”.
Finally, he pointed out that “there are many demands that still remain to be resolved and we are not going to stop vindicate both the Junta and the central government so that these are resolved once and for all and the residents of Mijas can count on the facilities and services they deserve”.
The agreement sealed by the three formations will thus focus the efforts of the local government on improving the quality of life of residents in the town “prioritizing the execution of several points collected in the decalogue as main lines of action in order to provide stability and advance the town in economic, social and labor matters over the next 4 years”.
The signed decalogue includes the creation of 500 Official Protection Homes (VPO) to provide a solution to housing needs in Mijas; the promotion of citizen participation in all areas of local action, the commitment to finalize the process for the construction of the Residence for the Elderly and the Day Center in the urban center of Las Lagunas or the creation of a sports city in the old Costa del Sol Hippodrome facilities that cover grassroots and high performance sports.
