We pay, but how much?
Mayor Abbate has miraculously found a fair amount of money recently, unsurprisingly in the months leading up to the local elections. The problem is that the Mayor either doesnt know or doesnt want to tell us how much these projects cost. When you ask for transparency and the accounts, you meet a brick wall. Nobody seems to know how much these projects cost.
Given that the Mayor wants our votes for these projects, I see it as highly reasonable that he tells us exactly how much we have paid. Here’s a list:
The Museum of the Consorzio of Chocolate
The illumination of the Liceo Classico, Santa Teresa and other monuments
The visit of the Prince of Monaco
The visit of any so called VIP which demands the presence of the Mayor and a bar of chocolate
The Consorzio of Touristic Operators
The presence of the mayor at events where the Chocolate Consorzio is also present
The cost of every project sanctioned by the mayor without either a bando or a gara
