The episode dates back to October: a child, while he was atmunicipal kindergarten, he had injured his hand in the hinge of one door fire break, procuring injuries by crushing the third and fourth fingers of the left hand. Injuries not permanent, but which involved three months of treatment. And eight months after the events, the mayor of Cream, in the province of Cremona, Stefania Bonaldi, received a warranty notice. She, in competition with other people, is criticized for having omitted the installation of suitable devices to avoid automatic closing. “I only hide this from you episode – Bonaldi said in the city council, where he gave news of being investigated -, since its occurrence it has been for me a source of great debasement, soothed only by the happy health outcome; however, today it is also time to focus on a system which, on a national level, needs interventions e corrective, also invoked by authoritators opinion makers and scholars in a transversal way, which increase the legal protections in favor of the mayors “. An appeal that has garnered the support of the mayors, starting with the president of theAnci and first citizen of Bari Antonio Decaro, and of Matteo Salvini who deems it “unacceptable to investigate and persecute mayors, throughout Italy, whatever happens” and recalls that the increase in “salaries e safeguards for the first citizens it is a priority for the League, i referendumgiustizia they will be an opportunity for everyone ”.
The solidarity of the mayors – “With Stefania we are all under investigation, if the state does not change the rules we will constitute ourselves part civil. We do not ask immunity O impunity, as we have already written in the appeal of last March 2, on the occasion of the affair that struck Chiara Hanger, we only ask to free the mayors from not own responsibilities. So it is no longer possible to go on ”, he warns Decaro, which announces: “We will parade with our 8 thousand bands, constituting ourselves ‘civic part’, in the courtroom where the mayor of Cream maybe one day to show up to defend against this accusation. We will be there with you, or with any other mayor called to defend yourself from faults that obviously are not and cannot be his. Why – he concludes the president of Anci – is not the mayor of Cream today to have been investigated but together with her we all feel investigated. Sooner or later someone will have to answer when Italy will remain a country without mayors“. From the part of Bonaldi also the mayor of Milan Beppe Sala, which is considered “between mayors who say that you can’t go on like this. It seems to me – he adds – that there is a long consent on this and I expect there will also be some decisive action by the mayors ”, he concluded. Solidarity via Twitter also from Virginia Raggi, convinced that “more clarity is needed on our responsibilities to avoid blocking administrative action. We mayors always on the front line ”, and by the mayor of Florence Dario Nardella who, again on the microblogging site, writes: “Now do you understand why nobody in Italy feels like being the mayor anymore?”.
Bonaldi: “Serving one’s community has become too risky” – It was Bonaldi herself who gave the news of the guarantee notice, who announced it in the course of town Council. “If a child gets crushed two fingers at the municipal nursery, fortunately without reporting damage permanent, and the mayor receives a warranty notice, it seems clear to me that something in the system (not in the specific case, it I repeat and I renew my full confidence in judiciary), functions inadequately, ”he continued. “After all – he added -, if today to find candidates available a very long process of persuasion is necessary, it is because serving one’s community has become too risky “and” they prove it situations painful like the one recently returned to the limelight with the acquittal in the second degree of Simone Objects, former mayor of Lodi because the fact does not exist, in the meantime the media pillory had demolished first the man and then the administrator ”. Bonaldi he also cited the cases of acquittal for Virginia Rays and of the sentence for Chiara Hangers and “it is no coincidence that the same has declared its unavailability for a second term, a circumstance that in a normal context would be very anomalous, because each mayor or mayor is willing and proud to carry on what he has sown”. “I hope this our each other, with less serious outlines than those just mentioned, and perhaps for this reason perhaps even more paradoxical, help to accelerate a serious reflection at the national level ”, he concluded.
