The former mayor has already submitted the necessary documents to participate in the preliminary voting on April 19.
– I plan to be elected in Voroshilovsky and Pervomaisky districts of Rostov-on-Don, Aksaysky district and the city of Novocherkassk. These territories are united into one constituency under number 152, – said Kushnarev, – I am ready to share my ideas, as well as accept proposals from you.
According to Vitaly Kushnarev, he plans to support local producers, take measures to strengthen the independence of municipal budgets and return the program for the reconstruction of courtyards, which will allow for the repair and improvement of all courtyards in Russia.
– In the first place is the question of the financial dependence of budgets on subsidies. Rostov gives the lion’s share of income to the higher budget. About 20 percent remains for their own development – this is extremely insufficient. I want to help Rostov and other municipalities in solving this problem.
