There is very interesting account published in a local free newspaper this week about the son of Socialist boss Antonia Moreno who boasted on his twitter account that he again has a guaranteed job for this summer, supposedly as a lifeguard on Orihuela Costa’s beaches, even though her government has not yet publicly awarded the contract.

Some would turn a blind eye to a summer job for the son of the woman who controls the Mayor but there are more sinister goings on with jobs for the boys, that involves the mismanagement of public finances.

A company was contracted by the PP of Monica Lorente in May 2011 to carry out the maintenance works for public areas in Orihuela Costa. Councillor Pedro Mancebo of CLR was very dissatisfied with this company as they were not fulfilling the conditions of the contract and their level of service was inadequate, most Costa residents would agree with him on this issue, indeed many concerned residents voiced their opinion that the service needed to be upgraded and be more efficient.

On investigation Mancebo found that this company did not even supply the correct number of staff stipulated in the contract for the service, which was required according to the terms of the contract, so the town hall was being billed for a service that the coast was not receiving.

In order to protect the public interests of the residents, Pedro Mancebo started to initiate the required legal process which is necessary to cancel the contract with this company.

He refused to pay the company for work that wasn’t done or badly done and would not sign the monthly payment request by the company until the works that were invoiced were verified. Mancebo wanted to be sure that the company fulfilled the terms and conditions of the contract before he paid out public money. When it was clear that they were not complying with the terms of the contract, Mancebo, finally decided cancel the contract in January.

Then unexpectedly, on 31st January Pedro Mancebo was sacked from his responsibility as councillor for the coast, the very position that had the power to cancel this contract. Within days, the socialist leader Antonia Moreno took over this contract and she authorised the payment of all the pending bills for this company without taking into account the verification that Mancebo had demanded.

Strangely enough, one month later in March, at least ten people associated with the socialist party were employed by this company, including a cousin of Antonia Moreno, also a well known socialist pedaneo (an appointed representative of the mayor in a village), the husband of another socialist pedanea, the son of another socialist pedaneo and brother in law of yet another socialist pedaneo as well as other socialist supporters.

When Pedro Mancebo was first sacked from his responsibilities it was clear that this was because he was the councillor that had his ear to the ground and was getting things done all over the municipality including the coast.

He was getting too popular and this was not going to help the socialist electoral plans for 2015. In addition in the months before his sacking he had opposed Moreno’s pet projects that would drain funds from the coast. Until she got rid of Mancebo she could not smother her cronies with rewards.

Now we are finding out more reasons why CLR’s Pedro Mancebo was sacked from the government, he was an obstacle for Antonia Moreno purposes as she intended to influence the town hall contracts and reward her people by getting them contracted to companies that usually work for the town hall.

It is now clear that CLR’s removal from the government by the Socialists and the Greens was because they were an obstacle to the real intentions of these parties who wanted to favour the Socialist leader Antonia Moreno’s family of and as many members of the socialist party as possible instead of looking after the public interests of the citizens and the correct development of contracts.

It’s against the public interest to turn a blind eye to a company that does not carry out the right service just because it employs friends, family and supporters.
