The tenant of Palazzo San Giorgio, also as Delegate Anci for Southern Italy and the territorial Cohesion Policies, focused on the economic difficulties of the Municipalities – very often forced to respond to substantial rebalancing plans and cuts on state transfers they risk jeopardizing the delicate programming work – called ” to leverage external resources, such as the funds reserved for cohesion policies, which from extraordinary appropriations become unbearably supplementary funding. It cannot be possible “.
“C cuts – Falcomatà explained – that little or nothing affects the abyss of public debt. Rather, it would be necessary to concentrate more resources to give the possibility of assuming so as to let the bureaucratic and administrative apparatus of the Entity breathe, grappling with the ever more rapid sizing of the staff, and allow to stop the bleeding of young people who, as can be seen also from the last report of the “Migrantes Foundation”, they leave the South to go and find shelter and comfort abroad “.In short, from the mayor Giuseppe Facomatà came a dry and peremptory “enough” to the cuts and the request for a “more equitable and just” distribution of the state funds between North and South of the Country: “
It is more than ever mandatory to return, to the Policies of cohesion, the role of additional and non-substitute resources “. The example brought to the young people of the Training Course makes the context well: “At our settlement there was not even an open nursery. All facilities were closed due to cuts in education funds. We have reopened three of them, but only thanks to the CAPs, the action and cohesion plans, which should, precisely, serve as additional funding for the programming, but have become replaced due to the almost total absence of ordinary investments. Can it be possible? “ .
” Necessary “, therefore, appears the reform of the Accounting of local entities, given that ” the laws on instability and the predissesto have failed”.
In short, according to the mayor Giuseppe Falcomatà, “we need a general and substantial rethinking of the economic policies aimed at the local authorities that, in the daily activity, remain tight in the yoke of the lack of liquidity and of an increasingly complicated and endangered programming by the rigid austerity plans “.
The mayor of Reggio then dwelt on the value of political training schools in this particular historical phase: ” They are necessary and fundamental to create that ruling class which, at one time, was shaped in the parties and sections scattered throughout the neighborhoods and, at the institutional level, found sap in the smaller districts and municipalities. Nowadays, instead, these places tend, unfortunately, to be less and less effective delegating, very often, to the extemporaneousness of virtual squares the task of constructing the actors of political activity “.
