  • Can our webmaster explain as to why there are no news reports in the area from the 5th August.
    Surely something of note has occurred.

  • I would have thought that Mayor Gorrin being dumped by his party would have warrented a mention.

  • I think he actually 'handed in his notice'. He might even be joining another political party!!

  • Well, that's made my day to know he's gone. Perhaps now we can have some of the issues he refused to deal with sorted out for the folk who live here.

  • Yesterday Mayor Gorrin sacked three of his councillors (News in the Sun) making Stephen Gerald Mckenna councillor No. 5.
    This morning Gorrin sacked another councillor making Stephen Gerald Mckenna councillor No. 4.
    At this rate Steve could be Mayor by the end of the week!!

  • Why there isn't much local news at the moment - I am getting virtually no press releases  from the Ayuntamiento.  I will not listen to local gossip and use guesswork,  risking the strong probability of posting wrong information.

  • This is an extract of today's Diario de Avisos report on the situation.

    Gorr?n tambi?n ha cesado a Jonathan Fumero, personal de confianza, presidente del comit? local de Coalici?n Canaria en el municipio y asesor "incondicional". El "recambio" ser? de concejales del CCN (Centro Canario), Antonio Mascare?o y Antonio S?nchez, quienes ocupar?n el lugar de los destituidos, aunque de momento no se sabe qu? ?reas asumir?n. Gorr?n anunciar? hoy "una reestructuraci?n de su gobierno" hasta las pr?ximas elecciones.

    For those of you who don't understand Spanish, may i suggest you copy and paste the quote on Google translate, it seems a perfect translation except for the fourth word 'cesado' which should read 'finished'.

    The knowledge of Google is indeed truely awesome  ;)

  • Apparently there was major activity last week in the Ayuntamiento.
    Stephen Gerald McKenna is now councillor No 3, responsible for Tourism, Local Police & Fire Brigade.
    Not sure which political party he is in now.
    Surely there must have been something in the Spanish press.
