Business As Usual

The PP Mayor of Estepona sacked an adviser after he was charged in connection with the Gürtel Corruption Scandal only to hire his live-in partner.

Ricardo Galeote stepped down when he was formally charged after being asked to do so by the Mayor, José María García Urbano, which is understandable, but what is not understandable is that Ricardo’s live-in partner was then hired by the Mayor to replace him, enjoying the same salary as her dismissed partner, a mere two days after his dismissal.

Alecksandra Iwona was appointed on the 11th of September thanks to a decree from the Mayor’s office, entitling her to a annual salary of 47,700 euros. The PSOE opposition pointed out that this generous amount is more than the Town Hall sets aside to help struggling families.

Readers might ask themselves, surely politicians must be aware of just how sick and tired the general public is of their collective shamelessness, but the truth is, they just don’t care – this can be the only explanation for it.
