This weekend the Popular Party of Ibiza participated in their national party convention held in Madrid, where Popular Party spokesman, Miguel Jerez, said that the convention has served to “identify the need to defend our policies and reinforce our principles and values.”
He concluded that the party’s proposals for the next election seek to “move forward on the path of growth, development and persevence in improving social policies”.
The mayor of Santa Eulalia, Vicent Marí, contributed to one of the areas of discussion at the national convention, with some advice for other municipalities: “political and budgetary stability are essential to ensure good municipal management,” and gave as the best example of all his own municipality of Santa Eulalia.
Mari explained that “in Santa Eulalia a good estimate of revenue and expenditure has allowed us to avoid generating deficits. A simple task, but one that it seems others cannot achieve. In turn, the surplus generated has allowed us to avoid the need for any rescue plan.”
According to Mari, “this economic stability has facilitated the signing of agreements with the region that have allowed us to anticipate funding to build a new school and reform a former school.”
On the other hand, Marí also referred to collaboration with the private sector. In this regard, he noted that “public-private partnership is required to create jobs, and we are working in our town.”
Finally, he noted that economics does not believe “in miracles”: “I believe in good management, on reliability, stability and confidence building and this is what has allowed Santa Eulalia to become a municipality leader in creating employment, economic growth and social development.”
