The Canarian Coalition (CC) assembly in El Rosario ratified the choice of Cristina Valid as a candidate for mayor in the elections to be held on May 28, a decision adopted unanimously by the Rosario nationalists. “Swaddled by my people,” she stressed that representing her party’s initials “is a very exciting challenge and in which I will be well accompanied by brave men and women, who take risks and are not afraid of the work and the enormous effort that we will make in the coming months to reach all corners of our municipality”.
Valid advanced that among the objectives is “to improve the quality of life of all of us who live here, the municipal services and benefits we receive, as well as to promote and support the local economy that generates wealth and employment”. Along these lines, he referred to the stagnation of La Esperanza, “without activity or adequate public spaces and without decent sports facilities”; and he criticized that El Rosario is “one of the few municipalities without an indoor municipal swimming pool, which has been promising and forcing young and old to move outside when needed for health reasons.”
When talking about the state of the municipality, he cited the lack of attractions, promotion, adaptation and beautification of streets and main squares, as well as the use of “a unique botanical jewel” such as the Bosque del Adelantado. All this, factors for which “we lose thousands of people who climb Mount Teide every day without stopping in the municipality.”
Among his priorities, he cited a comprehensive plan for the modernization and rehabilitation of the town, as well as a strategy to promote the local primary sector aimed at recovering crops and agricultural land that is now abandoned.
In that list, he also prioritizes “reinforcing the forces of the Local Police and establishing the necessary strategies so that in the months of massive assistance to our beaches, those who live there are not harmed, the accesses do not collapse and order is guaranteed, it is a challenge that must be addressed with the same urgency as the public transport that connects us and should facilitate mobility within the municipality, the connection between neighborhoods, between La Esperanza and the coast”.
In cultural matters, “not everything is fixed with annual subsidies that do not always arrive and whose amounts vary without explanation.” Valida proposes “a permanent programming and certainty, a firm commitment to local cultural production, an activity that is enjoyed and known in all corners of the municipality,” explained the candidate.
Cristina Valido defended that “in the coming years, the General Planning Plan must be approved once and for all, on which the availability of land for public endowments of all kinds depends. A decisive document for the future that we should all know and of which We must participate.”
a committed woman
The insular secretary general of CC, Francisco Linares, stressed that Valido is a “close, humble woman who is 100% committed to her municipality.” She also called for the mobilization of “each and every person from the party and the municipality to govern El Rosario and do it again in Tenerife and the Canary Islands. We have to mobilize street by street and neighborhood by neighborhood.”
For her part, the CC candidate for the presidency of the Cabildo, Rosa Dávila, attributed to CC the merit of the construction of the La Campana treatment plant – “the first defeat of the PSOE and Pedro Martín” – and the improvement works of the Polígono The Bell, “which was inexplicably delayed”. In this sense, Dávila committed the support of her government to the sports infrastructures of La Esperanza, with the pool as a priority; the incorporation of El Rosario to the Insular Sociosanitary Plan and the improvement of the connections between the high zone and the coast.
