Antonio Hernando, Miguel Angel Heredia, Antonio Sanchez, and many Socialists in the Costa del Sol and Mijas were there to support Fuensanta Lima as the candidate of the Socialists in Mijas.
The common interest, public service and hard work will be the mainstays of Fuensanta Lima when she becomes Mayoress of Mijas after the forthcoming municipal elections to be held on May 22nd.
She thanked those who were there and those who have shown their support over the past years and still show their support to her. She assured them that “today is one of the greatest days of my life”.
She also thanked the Local Executive who elected her as a candidate, praised the work of Antonio Sanchez as Mayor of Mijas, and pointed out that she considers him a role model as a politician because he has been generous with his support and she is proud of him.
Being the first Mayoress of Mijas, but especially “the Mayoress who Mijas needs,” is my daily work, because what I know best is how to work, work and work, and above all cooperate ” said Lima. She also stated “I am capable, I will have a new team, they will be very well prepared. they will work with enthusiasm and without counting the hours, because that’s what the people of Mijas require”.
“I believe in Mija,s as it is a progressive city with a great future. ” said Lima, She also pointed out that the progress of the city will be linked to listening to the residents and “every euro invested in the city will be for welfare of its citizens.
She also said that her priorities, now and in the future, will be job creation, commitment to education and social policies because “in Mijas we attend now and in the future those who need help, but above all to those who are suffering due to the international crisis”
She mentioned a big project that she is very proud of, the Bureau for the Promotion of Tourism in Mijas, where not only various city councillors are involved, but also repesentatives of golf courses, restaurateurs, businessmen,, the school of Tourism , and even the political opposition. “This is what I believe in: collaboration,” she added.
Finally, she said: “I will communicate directly and face to face with the people of Mijas , without giving pats on the back that are worth nothing”, so for Fuensanta Lima “local politics consists in putting yourself in the citizens’ shoes”. She reiterated her pride and commitment to and for the people of Mijas, in being Socialist ; above all she wants to lead a progressive administration because she wants the best for Mijas.
The City and Municipal Policy Secretary of the Federal Executive of the PSOE, Antonio Hernando, noted how, despite the poor image of some politicians, due to some specific events that eventually transcend to a larger scale, “people who are involved in politics dedicate much of their time and effort and some people even leave their hearts and here we have a clear example “he said, referring to Sanchez, ” the sole ambition of Antonio Sánchez has been to work on behalf of his city and those who live here “.
Hernándo added that “Mijas is not just any Town Hall. In Spain we govern over 3,000 municipalities and Mijas is included in a catalogue of the best practices within 53 municipalities, with the campaign Vive Mijas As an example of the way Mijas demonstrates social involvement and good management, he cited the Gloria Fuertes infant school for children from 0 to 3 years old. This is one of the largest in Andalucia.
He also pointed out that “it has been a good transition,” and “I’m sure Fuensanta will do a great job. She will be a great Mayoress and she will be highly visible in the streets and municipality of Mijas.
Miguel Ángel Heredia wanted to highlight the work of Antonio Sanchez leading the Town Hall of Mijas, because “he has demonstrated his honesty and integrity in renouncing his candidacy.” He pointed out that the PSOE in Mijas has demonstrated “the strength of its project”, since “Mijas is a reference point for socialist policies in the province of Malaga as well as in Andalusia Mijas was the first city in Spain to develop the areas of Education and Active Employment Policy.. “
Similarly, Heredia recalled how the policies of the PSOE de Mijas have made it the city in the Costa del Sol which has provided the most employment with the two plans Zapatero and Proteja, In addition, The Town Hall has devoted more than half of the second Plan Zapatero to education. Thus, “employment, education and social policies, accompanied by austerity, transparency and good management exemplify the policies that are being carried out by the Socialists in Mijas, Antonio has been leading the Town Hall, and Fuensanta will do so after the elections in May.”
Antonio Sánchez, General Secretary of the PSOE in Mijas and Mayor reiterated his support for Fuensanta Lima and expressed his appreciation for the gestures of affection from all the citizens from Mijas and especially thanked the support from his family.
Other Socialist candidates in the Costa del Sol are Javier García León from Fuengirola, Javier Carnero from Benalmadena, Jose Ortiz from Torremolinos. These, as well as numerous provincial and regional leaders like Francisco Conejo, Susana Radio, Daniel Perez, Richie Lopez, or Jose Carlos Duran did not want to miss the opportunity to support the candidate of Mijas, Fuensanta Lima.
