In his last three months as mayor of Bigastro, Raúl Valerio Medina wasn’t paid but then neither were the other council workers. Now he has sent a letter to the present council asking for the 7,258 Euros that are owed to him. Apparently this issue was raised in a council meeting last November and is still outstanding.
In reply, Aurelio Murcia said that it was shameful that the ex mayor should ask for his own salary first rather than the salaries of other council workers. He went on to say that, in any case, there is no money available in the council coffers to make the payments.
