The arrogance of political power!

A comment by BERTHOLD BLESENKEMPERThe Junge Union Bocholt demands the "funeral" of the BürgerKulturHaus project. This has long since "died," writes the chairman Lukas Behrendt, who is also deputy party chairman and parliamentary group leader of the CDU, in a press release. It also includes terms such as "insolence" and "million grave". Now you can be in the matter quite different opinion. But in order to make his point clear, one must not and can not engage in such a tone as an elected representative of the people. It seems as if the young politician his office has gone to hell if he evaluates the opinion Andersdenker so derogatory and thus demonstrates the arrogance of political power. To the point: The BürgerKulturHaus plan is first of all a citizen project of a community foundation. More than two dozen Bocholter associations are involved in it, whose honorary board members were looking forward to finally getting a home and organizing more beautiful events. To take your dreams is one thing. But then also verbally follow, a very different. Of course, Lukas Behrendt is right when he says that politics has set priorities differently. That is their right. But he has to accept that many citizens set other priorities. That is just as her right - all the more so, as some decisions can be called into question. Example Rathaus. It is difficult for citizens to realize that there is no money for their wishes, but a lot for the wishes of the top management. This is precisely the top management who has led the Council and thus the representatives of the citizenry by the nose and concealed the Unterdenkmal position of the controversial city hall until a demolition or other cost-effective solutions were no longer possible. Instead of violently clearing this opinion and giving it a reprimand, 6,5 is now building a fourth floor on the roof for XNUMX millions of euros, the cost-benefit ratio of which can not be presented. Example: City planning: For years, council and administration have here you are. That's why they just want to pump in a double-digit million sum to save what can not be saved at least. It does not use anything to repaint, to set up additional flowerbeds, trees and seesaw horses and to rename the city center in Altstadt, if still on Saturdays from 13 clock the large ESB sweeper drives through the market with din and with the waste also all visitors sweeps. What the city needs is a content concept. It could be the first car-free city in Germany, or even the greenest and coziest, or the most modern and digital. The main thing, it would first set a goal and then built only. Example Nordring: Here, the CDU is trying to make with the election promises of yesterday and blueprints of the day before yesterday's transport policy. She makes use of a bold label swindle. Since Daniel Zöhler has been a town planning officer, the ring, which has always been planned as a city ring and is still called that, suddenly no longer has a ring, but primarily a development road for new construction areas. After all, no one can have anything against new construction areas and development, so the idea. For how stupid do politics and top management actually feel about the citizen? In short: What Lukas Behrendt calls "insolence" is what I call grassroots democracy. The fact that citizens question decisions of the Council is not only their right, but even their duty in a city where there has been no genuine opposition for years. A proposal for kindness: If the Assembly of Deputies is so secure in the Prioritization to be right, she can indeed make a referendum by a council decision. Otherwise, the citizens will do it themselves. Hans-Josef van Hüth (Free Greens / The Left) has already publicly encouraged. [...]

JU demands funeral of the brewery project

The brewery project has died from the point of view of the Junge Union (JU) Bocholt. This is clearly made clear to its chairman Lukas Behrendt. The JU now demands to develop new ideas for the property as quickly as possible. Behrendt explains: "As the President of the Government Dorothee Feller explained in May, we as the city of Bocholt can not expect to receive millions for all our major projects. She made it clear that we have to make a decision here. This has fallen with the list of priorities and for the brewery in the list no money is provided. From the beginning, the policy has made the express condition that a possible promotion of the brewery may not compete with other projects. This was clear to all parties at any time. But now we know that such a competition does exist. Thus, all previous decisions are null and void. The policy has given the community foundation their chance. But the project has now died. This must be understood by all parties involved and the plans finally bury. Instead, playing off the brewhouse project against the town hall renovation and claiming any funds that may be released is an absolute impudence. With any savings, Bocholt would rather pay off debts or tackle important projects such as the Nordring or the rehabilitation of schools. Just as it is specified in the priority list. Although a larger event hall in Bocholt is certainly desirable. But a room financed by public money can not exist at any price. As it is now clear, the community foundation needs in addition to an annual operating grant in the amount of 180.000 Euro additionally an investment cost subsidy by the city in the tens of millions. This demand rejects the Junge Union in all clear. The brewery must not become a million-dollar grave for taxpayers' money, so a clear statement is important at this time. We thank the community foundation for their ideas and the work done. She has invested a great deal of volunteer dedication and heart and soul. But when millions of dollars of urban money are needed, politics is responsible for weighing costs and benefits and making a decision - even if it is unpleasant and it means the end of the brewhouse. A clear no to urban grants is better than constant uncertainty. The administration and all stakeholders must therefore now think about alternatives to the property and its use. A plot in such a location may no longer be broke and expire. I am sure that it is very attractive for a new development by a private investor - without even a penny of municipal funds. "[...]
