| The councilor of the Municipal Socialist Group Antonio Benito also wonders how much this second phase of Murcia Río will cost, "a pharaonic project that, as far as we know, will extend beyond this mandate" | The Municipal Socialist Group, as emphasized in the last Extraordinary Plenary and as it has been affirming throughout the state of alarm, is committed to prioritizing those projects and programs that allow all Murcians to advance at this stage equally without imbalances. For this reason, the socialist councilor Antonio Benito considers that "it is not the time for Murcia Río.
Our priority is to invest in social services in the face of the serious situation of risk of exclusion, improve mobility that is very precarious and tackle inequality in the municipality." "This project, whose second phase has been presented today, would be good at a stage in which we would not be threatened by poverty and unemployment," says Benito, who also points out that "at this time we should reserve ourselves for what is looming.
" The socialist councilor explains that the Socialist Group has a municipal project that involves finding balance, both geographically and between inhabitants and between the various areas of power of the City Council, since "only in this way will we be able to get ahead without leaving anyone behind." And he adds that "it is necessary to promote what will benefit Murcia, social services, employment or tourism the most, we should not be spending, like last year, twice as much in green areas". Finally, Benito points out a question: "How much is it going to cost in taxes to the thousands of Murcians who do not make ends meet this new whim of Ballesta? And as far as we know it is a pharaonic project that is going to extend beyond this mandate.
