Seville, September 29, 2020. The VOX Municipal Group in the Seville City Council has asked the mayor of Seville, the socialist Juan Espadas, about the growing shantytown settlement of the old chaterrería de Hermanos Madrigal, in San Jerónimo, and demands its eradication urgent for the second time in a year. The municipal spokesperson for VOX, Cristina Peláez, has stated that "From VOX we warned of this growing shanty town in San Jerónimo a year ago, and today we are again demanding its urgent eradication." Mayor Juan Espadas once again fails to fulfill his commitments with the neighborhoods of Seville ”.
Accompanied by the deputy spokesperson of the Municipal VOX Group in the Seville City Council, Gonzalo García de Polavieja, Peláez has held meetings with merchants and residents of the neighborhood, who have transmitted their fear that the area will continue to deteriorate, becoming a source of unhealthy and insecure. In this way, Peláez has indicated that “the problem becomes chronic, a year ago we asked the mayor in plenary session of the City Council about this matter Juan Espadas, who replied that he would solve it, and after this time the settlement has not only not been eradicated, but it continues to grow, with structures even made of bricks ”. "This is on the way to becoming a second Vacie," he said.
Peláez has asked Espadas that "how much longer do the residents of San Jerónimo have to put up with this serious problem?", And emphasized that "the shanty town settlement It is located on municipal land so the problem must be solved by the Seville City Council”. "The neighbors tell us that they are desperate to see the null municipal intervention in this issue.
"VOX is on top of this matter, we have denounced it in District Boards through our members, and in the City Council in plenary session, we have been from the first moment the voice of the residents of San Jerónimo demanding solutions, It seems clear that for the PSOE of Seville and its mayor Juan Espadas the problems of the neighborhoods do not exist nor do they care, they settle for the photo and the walk, and then they completely forget about the daily needs and demands of Sevillians "
Cristina Peláez has asserted that "the management of the municipal government of the PSOE towards the neighborhoods of Seville is disastrous and incompetent, and is paid by the Sevillians who They do not deserve a government that totally forgets about the real problems, and that adds entire districts to a day-to-day lack of cleanliness and security, with the consequent despair of their neighbors, who see how their taxes do not affect the improvement of its streets and squares, and that on the contraryor neglect, abandonment and degradation advance and expand, We have a clear example today in San Jerónimo with the shanty town that we are denouncing "
The portzvos of the Municipal VOX Group has demanded that Espadas "urgently initiate the necessary steps to proceed, before it is too late, to to eradicate this shanty town, to the cleaning and tidying up of the area and to the implementation, once and for all, of municipal plans that guarantee security ,the quality of public services and the due attention that the residents of San Jerónimo deserve.
