Reggio, Falcomatà presents the new council but there remain… three empty seats


By John

The day of the revelation to present the new executive. Who knows the mayor’s passion Falcomata for classical culture he was not surprised by the choice of Epiphany for the announcement that has kept the city suspended for two months. And if it is true that “politics has its liturgies” to consume, it is equally true that “the mayor has the duty to respond to the needs of the city”. And so after a long tug-of-war with the majority parties, his PD at the head, Falcomatà breaks through. During the last council he had clearly said that he «does not recognize himself in the figure of the fearful Don Abbondio», he challenges the coalition «he leaves the mandate objectives unchanged which have not changed compared to 2020» but redesigns the team «invigorated with technical skills and capabilities professional”. An executive of professionals to change pace and approach. This is what he underlined several times during the press conference. Six councilors and three seats still empty, perhaps in the hope that an agreement with the Dems can still mature.
