Reggio, the former secretary of the PD joins Forza Italia. Will Zimbalatti follow him?


By John

New members of Forza Italia continue to join. The last chronological order is by the well-known lawyer and university professor, Giuseppe Strangio, an experienced politician, former provincial secretary of the PD. «I thank the hon. Cannizzaro who strongly wanted me in the team. I am honored to become part of this new Forza Italia, which was born with solid Calabrian roots and which has the ambition of restoring a different and better face of Reggio and Calabria to the rest of Italy. Cannizzaro didn't have much trouble convincing me – explains Strangio – a few words were enough for him. For him, the events carried out in Parliament in recent years speak for themselves, always for Reggio and Calabria, and in constant harmony with the parallel commitment of the regional government, excellently led by Roberto Occhiuto. In recent years, in addition to my teaching and professional activity, I have channeled my civil passion towards service associations, finding in Lions the right environment to grow. Then I must admit that Francesco has given me back the desire to get involved in politics, through the goodness and authenticity of his project, which takes the form of a tireless effort to put the South, Calabria, therefore Reggio and the 'Strait Area. Then, the candidacy of an extraordinary person like Giusi Princi in the European elections was the icing on the cake and motivates me even more to give my best. This new political entity, thanks to the inclusive commitment of President Antonio Tajani, opens up to those like me who aspire to find the right space to grow liberal and secular ideals like those that have always guided my civil and political commitment”.
«For Peppe Strangio his renewed enthusiasm and his CV speak for themselves – states the Hon. Cannizzaro, regional coordinator of FI –. In addition to the important role he held in the PD in another life, I remember that he was Chief of Cabinet of the President of the Regional Council of Calabria (by Peppe Bova, ed.), legal consultant of the Region and member of the evaluation bodies of the Municipality of Reggio and Regional Council, former member of the Fincalabra Board of Directors. Today, in addition to sitting in the Academic Senate of the IUL University of Florence, where he is a professor as well as director of Masters and Higher Education Courses, he is president of a service club. A symptom that he has certainly not lost the desire to spend himself for the city, for the common good. She was perhaps asleep. And Forza Italia, with its renewed values ​​and its ever-increasing credibility, has managed to reawaken it. In Peppe, as well as in many other professionals who are joining our rebirth and development project. In fact. With his experience and skills, I am sure he will make a great contribution to us. The stronger FI is, the stronger Calabria is… my motto – concludes Cannizzaro – has a very specific meaning, which day after day is reflected in the concreteness of our actions”.
Strangio's membership in FI is the prelude to the arrival in FI (or the exit from the majority) of the municipal councilor as well Nino Zimbalatti always in the same political area as Strangio. Furthermore – all that is missing is the official status – FI is ready to also embrace the former municipal councilor (and the most voted in the Democratic Party) Rocco Albanesewhich is now very close to the area of ​​the regional councilor Crinò.
