Localities Without a Mayor
MARIUS TUCA - June 30 2004
If in all of these localities no mayor existed, there wouldnât be anyone complaining about that, there wouldnât be any tragedy happening! Furthermore, I think it would be better. Though this might shock you, I have to say that, this year, in the local elections, most of the mayors have been elected in vain, especially the ones in the small localities, cities, villages or communes. Together with the Jurnalul National Caravan, I have visited a lot of localities of this kind, lately, and I realised that the mayors are simply shackled as long as they donât have any money. They canât get anything out of the money for the City Hall they can at most fasten a nail, if they have where. Besides that, there is little chance to get funds from the EU. All these mayors have been elected to manage the poverty, having a budget equal to zero. The projects presented in their campaigns by these actual mayors, their promisses, were also based on the poverty and on the needs of the people. There has not been any promise or idea about the development of the locality. They have only promissed solutions for surviving. If in all of these localities no mayor existed, there wouldnât be anyone complaining about that, there wouldnât be any tragedy happening! Furthermore, I think it would be better. This is without taking into account that if this would be happening there wouldnât be any stealing, illegal arrangements or sprits. In most of these localities there is an extraordinary touristic potential, but there is no project of development for these places using this treasure. But, with all that poverty and resignation, which we are aware of, we want Romania to be a part of the EU. It is a good thing that we are going to members, but I wonder whatâs going to change for these places of Romania, for the profound Romania. What are the costs and what are the advantages of this? I donât think we need any extraordinary strategies in order to find solutions for these "localities without a mayor", as I called them, since they will only be official papers and nothing more than that. We need projects, we need specialists to create these projects for us in order to start having money from the EU coming into our country. If this doesnât happen, the unseen Romania, the profound Romania will remain for the next 20 years in the same dirt in which it has barely survived for such a long time.
