López Pagán: "We demand that the regional government abandon the sectarianism and collaborate in the construction of the sports pavilion of Cehegín" (09/03/2018)

López Pagán and José Rafael Rocamora also demand that instead of expanding the auditorium, it should be invested in a residence for the elderly.

The spokesman of the Socialist Parliamentary Group Joaquín López Pagán has demanded President López Miras to abandon the disloyalty with the socialist councils and stop punishing the neighbors, preventing them from enjoying the infrastructures to which they are entitled.

"We ask the president to abandon sectarianism and loyally contribute to finding solutions to the problems of the citizens of Cehegín."

The socialist spokesman, accompanied by the deputy speaker Alfonso Martínez Baños and deputies Choni Ludeña and Jesus Navarro, have held this morning a meeting at the City of Cehegín with Mayor José Rafael Rocamora and several members of the Corporation, in order to analyze various situations of the municipality that need investment to improve the infrastructures, and with it, the living conditions of the neighbors.

López Pagán has been interested in the problems of the municipality and has called on the regional government to collaborate economically in the construction of the new Cehegín sports pavilion, which will replace the "Lola de Gea" pavilion, which collapsed in January 2017 as a result of the temporary of snow.

The Socialist Parliamentary Group presented in its day initiatives in the Assembly asking the regional government for economic aid to alleviate the disaster, because the City Council lacks the economic resources to face them.

In this sense, the mayor José Rafa Rocamora has complained that "the regional government has not assumed any of the requests made by the City Council throughout this term";

and explained that the City Council has land for the construction of the new sports center in the area of ​​El Almarjal, "but the regional government has denied without explanation the request for a small investment to support its construction."

He also complains that the Ministry of Finance has not authorized the City Council to request a loan of 1.3 million euros for this purpose.

Rocamora has stressed that the City Council is willing, as it is committed to investing for the project of the new sports center 300,000 euros, which will receive the Works and Services Plan 2018-2019, but to make the project a reality, the collaboration of community.

In the opinion of the mayor, "this lack of commitment of the PP Government is a burden for the development of sport in the municipality," whose basketball teams and rhythmic gymnastics are forced to train in Calasparra.

Another unattended request from the regional government has been the consolidation of the structure of the municipal pool, which would mean an investment of 200,000 euros, also rejected by the Executive of the PP, despite the risk to users.


Joaquín López Pagán criticized, also, that "another example of waste, lack of planning and common sense of the PP governments in these 20 years" is the auditorium of Cehegín.

"A building that was created in the context of abundance, without taking into account the real needs of the municipality."

From the City Council consider that it is not necessary to expand, as there are other priorities such as the construction of a residence for the elderly.

In the case of this auditorium, the City Council governed then by the PP, requested in 2006 to the regional Government a subsidy for its construction, for a total amount of 16 million euros.

The first phase, financed by the City Council and Autonomous Community for an amount of 4 million euros, was executed and justified.

However, in the second phase, with a contribution of 3.5 million euros for each of the administrations, no investment has been made in the work.

Rocamora stresses that currently the Socialist City Council and the neighbors do not consider necessary more cultural spaces and have proposed to the regional Administration to agree on a legal solution, so that it is invested in that residence for the elderly.

Arrangement of the T-517

Finally, they have tackled an important demand, such as the integral conditioning of the regional crossing T-517 (known as the Murcia highway).

The mayor denounces that nothing has been done at the moment, in spite of his deteriorated state.

For what has requested the investment of the regional government for its arrangement in eight phases, which has also been rejected.

López Pagán assured that the Socialist Parliamentary Group will continue fighting in the Assembly so that the initiatives that are approved are executed without taking into account the political color, "because the municipalities need a loyal regional Government".
