Ciudad Real (EFE)
Ask: First measure that he will carry out if he is elected mayor
Canizares’s response: A battery of measures aimed at improving the relationship of the Ciudad Real City Council with its neighbours, providing it with personal and material means aimed at improving public service and proximity and organizing services to promote economic dynamism and attention to businessmen and investors.
Ask: Do you have any veto or red line to form a government?
Response from Canizares: We went out to win and govern with the utmost respect for the residents of Ciudad Real, who are the ones who decide. They will distribute responsibilities with their vote and we will solve problems and improve the city.
Cañizares, willing to agree with whoever seeks to improve Ciudad Real from moderation and consensus
Ask: Who are you willing to agree with?
Canizares’s response: We want to govern to change and improve our city and for that we need the entire society of Ciudad Real. We want to agree with her.
Anyone who seeks to improve our city from moderation and seeking consensus through dialogue and participation will surely be able to collaborate in the place that the polls place them.
We come from 4 years of a pact where the government has been the least prone to the agreement that is remembered. Neither motions nor amendments to the budgets were admitted to us because they did not even want to talk. That has to be changed.
Ask: If you are not mayor, will you continue in the City Council leading the opposition throughout the legislature?
Canizares’s response: I want to be mayor of Ciudad Real because I want to change things, improve it, make it grow and I will dedicate all my time to that in the coming years and that is what my head is at right now.
Ask: Three challenges facing the city in the year 2030.
Canizares’s response: Attract investments and companies that generate wealth and employment that takes us out of being the capital of Castilla-La Mancha with the most unemployment; consolidate, hand in hand with all, a city model where the quality of life leads us to be a benchmark in our province and region; and promote the pride of the city through our qualities, traditions and future projects that make us retain the young people who are now considering leaving Ciudad Real due to the lack of expectations.
He assures that the life of the ciudad realeños also influences the national and regional
Ask: Do you think that voters will vote municipally or will it influence national and regional politics?
Canizares’s response: Different things influence each voter. We have seen it in previous calls and so it will be in these. But it is clear that the general situation influences the local. Thinking otherwise does not seem very accurate either.
I work to offer an alternative to improve life for the residents of Ciudad Real, but I know that what happens in our region and in Spain also influences the lives of my neighbors.
Ask: What do you think is the main concern of your constituents and what solutions do you propose?
Canizares’s response: There are many, and in order to learn about them we have maintained an attitude of listening and attention during these four years. And in recent weeks with communication channels such as information tables on the street, web or whatsapp.
The demand for cleaning, maintenance of streets, sidewalks and sports facilities are very recurrent in all areas of the city.
The lack of expectations for the future is another of the things that most worries the population as a whole, given the inability to attract companies and investments.
Cañizares’ proposals to improve the lives of young people in Ciudad Real
Ask: What are your plans to improve the lives of young people (housing, work?) or attract young talent to the city?
Canizares’s response: Cooperation and complicity with the University must be strengthened to take advantage of young talent by connecting it with the business fabric. In the last 8 years, the Ciudad Real City Council has not addressed any housing policy, and this is another key factor.
As it is to improve the cultural, sports, and social offer to make us more attractive as a reference capital.
Ask: Highlight a quality of your main opponent or a concern you share with her about the city.
Canizares’s response: I believe that all of us who are presenting ourselves in these elections are aware of the stagnant situation that Ciudad Real is experiencing, and the need to attract companies and investments that create wealth and employment.
Ask: With what three words would you like those who live outside of it to define your city?
Canizares’s response: I highlight the three concepts that are necessary to work on and develop in our city model and that we have to achieve in the coming years: quality of life, economic development expectations and city pride.
If we manage to materialize these three concepts and define us as a city abroad, we will have a great future.
