Córdoba, Monday April 13, 2020. Vox has modified its priorities in the 2020 budget of the Córdoba City Council. "The best thing right now is to pass a budget that allows us to start working. There are projects that, due to the emergency situation that has been generated, will have to wait until 2021. At Vox we have added some amendments dedicated to the sectors of Córdoba that are having the worst and to families who need emergency aid due to this situation, ”he explained. VOX municipal spokesperson Paula Badanelli.
Vox abstains from the finance commission "With the conviction that in the plenary session on Thursday we will be able to support accounts that we all know are not the accounts that Córdoba currently needs but on which we can work".

Others also like ANFANE, which helps families not lose their homes due to specific problems ”.
Aid for trade, freelancers, SMEs, hospitality and the taxi sector
VOX has included yet another trade item “We have to help the small business to put itself on the market, to incentivize people to generate those much-needed purchases. We will do it through associations such as BNI, ATA, Aje, we do not include CECO because we understand that they have already allocated a sufficient amount to incentivize the business fabric ”.
From Vox they have also paid attention to the Taxi sector and of course in the hospitality industry, “sectors that have been greatly affected by the crisis, we understand that due to a health emergency, but of which many Cordoba families live, do not doubt that we are going to be with them. It is very difficult to take advantage of the economic advantage that the government has invented, they work in modules and they have to demonstrate 75 percent of the fall in income. ”
