Experience, knowledge, honesty, responsibility and great enthusiasm are the words that define 2015麓s new electoral programme. We are a committed, open and tolerant group of people with only one goal, to contribute our best to that most passionate task which unites us: Benissa. The people that live in our village, both those that were born here, and those who have come from abroad, are the ones who matter to us the most. We are all equal and responsible for building a better Benissa. At the head of our team is our current Mayor, Juan Bautista Rosell贸, a person that you already know well. To him, politics is a vocation that involves selfless public service, the ability to listen and understand everyone, and to provide help to those who need it most. In order to keep improving, we have prepared this electoral programme with realistic proposals that have been created through discussions and the participation of many groups of people; people whose support we appreciate greatly. This is done with you in mind.
