ALEX HERNANDEZ, spokesman for the Partido Popular at Ondara town hall, said that councillors need to take a pay cut.
Salaries should be cut by 50 per cent for all members of the municipal corporation while councillors’ attendance fees should be scrapped entirely during the coronavirus lockdown, Hernandez told the local Spanish media.
“The savings that the town hall makes this way could be used to buy essential supplies for Ondara’s health centre, the local care home for the elderly, the police, Proteccion Civil and the municipal cleaning and disinfection services,” Hernandez suggested.
“This is the time for all politicians to set an example to the local population by pitching during the exceptional situation that we are living through,” he said.
