Accent on youth in Finestrat


FINESTRAT’S mayor Juanfran Perez Llorca is bringing the municipality’s younger councillors to the fore.

Hector Baldo, who at 27 is also the youngest member of the local council, is now the town hall’s spokesman along with his existing responsibilities at the head of the Culture and Fiestas departments.

Nati Algado, in charge of the Health and Youth departments, has also been named as deputy spokeswoman.

“We are working towards a Plan Joven, agreed and approved with the municipality’s young people,” Perez Llorca announced.

“Appointing the local government’s youngest councillors as spokespeople was the best way of demonstrating that our commitment to youth is genuine,” the mayor added.

“They are going to play a very important part in all areas and will also be our principal link with Finestrat’s young people.”

Hector Baldo is also taking on the newly-created European Funds department, Perez Llorca revealed.

“We are not going to let the European Funds pass us by,” he declared.
