As the Orihuela Socialist Group begins work on the configuration of its campaign team prior to next May’s Municipal elections, long time spokesperson Carolina Gracia has been officially confirmed as their candidate for mayor.
The decision, made this week, followed the opening of the election process of PSPV-PSOE candidates in municipalities with more than 20,000 inhabitants.
Gracia was quick to show her gratitude for having confidence in her with “the responsibility of leading an electoral list that I am convinced will become the impetus that Orihuela needs to recover the time that has been lost with the coalition government of the PP and Ciudadanos.”
The party’s local executive issued a statement saying that the process to select all remaining candidates is close to being finalised. “We want to create a committed team that works hand in hand with Gracia and, above all with the capacity to listen.”
In the coming weeks and months they say that it is the intention of Carolina Gracia itself to expand communication channels and listen to experts in different areas of the city, as well as social organizations and residents across Orihuela and its districts. “We want to generate a shared city project, improve the Orihuela of the present and design a new and improved Orihuela of the future, and for that we need to listen, analyse and act”, Gracia said.
