Néstor Grindetti: “The country is a ship adrift and no one takes the helm”

“I am convinced of the central importance of culture and training in our social fabric, since they constitute the pillars that form the basis of our future. On a daily basis, we work intensely to interconnect the different educational, artistic and cultural activities, with the aim to ensure that Lanús is the cradle of new products and true references at the local level, ensuring that Culture transforms reality to grow and to build citizenship”, he points out.

Grindetti and criticism of social plans

In the midst of this controversy, it is worth remembering that the mayor a month and a half ago had published a letter in which he asked to decentralize the social plans and that they be administered by the municipalities.

The administration of social assistance should be decentralized to the municipalitiesIn this way intermediation is eliminated and the social plan reaches directly the neighbor who needs it, in return a task must be carried out for the community. Cutting off the streets is no longer an option,” said the community chief of Lanús.
