The mayor of Tacoronte, José Daniel Díaz Armas, shows his most resounding rejection of the investment forecasts of the Cabildo de Tenerife for the new financial year, since, in his opinion, “it once again mistreats the municipality and the residents of Tacoronte, relegating it to the penultimate place of the local corporations in the amount assigned and in the proportional distribution per inhabitant”.
Díaz, who claims to feel “doubly offended”, pointed out that “the Cabildo has shown that it does not have a single idea or project for the 24,000 inhabitants of Tacoronte” and affirmed that “every project that passes through our territory transversally is ignored in the island accounts, as evidenced by the fact that last year they left us with zero investment for infrastructure and that this year the distribution per inhabitant is 9.34 cents, which makes us the second worst financed municipality on the island” . A reality that, he asserted, “is curious that it only happens with municipalities that are not the political acronyms of the leaders of the Cabildo.”
Due to this, the president, who governs in agreement with Sí se puede and the PSOE, requires the latter to rule on the island accounts. In this sense, he recalled that, when the total absence of investment occurred last year, “I was willing to participate in a press conference in which they were going to protest against said distribution, warning me that if I attended, they would would break the pact in our municipality. Now, I am convinced that they are the ones who should take to the streets to claim what Tacoronte deserves”.
Díaz Armas affirms that “it is my partners in the Government who have the magnifying glass on themselves”, because, he adds, “the neighbors would like to know what the PSOE of Tacoronte thinks about their colleagues in the Cabildo and about the projects that are not are financing or the total absence of financing”.
According to the leader, “the position that I maintain as mayor is very clear, I will be in defense of the residents of Tacoronte even against my party, because I owe myself to them. Will my government partners do the same?”, he asks himself, and warns them that “if they do not agree to be part of a government that demands what Tacoronte deserves, it is because they should not be there”.
