NTERVIEW ROBERTO TRIPOLI Councilman Sao Paulo by PV
Councilman most votes of São Paulo, the “green” Roberto Tripoli explains his pro-environment campaign
After winning 132,000 votes in the polls and ensure the seventh consecutive term in the City Council, Roberto Tripoli (PV) starred in the first skirt-fair ‘senior’ of the new municipal government by refusing to call the mayor-elect, Fernando Haddad (PT ), to lead the department and the Green Environment. The area that led to political life, this time, not the seduced. In an interview with BRAZIL ECONOMIC he explains why, and comments on the priorities of the Legislature in 2013.
Why Mr.. refused the invitation of Mayor Fernando Haddad to take over the municipal Green and Environment?
The issue here is not environmental. After analyzing the party secretary, came to the conclusion that she needed another profile and indicate Ricardo Teixeira (PV). I was elected to the City Council and not to the secretary. I have no attachment over, so let’s hope the Ricardo make a good administration.
And what is this profile?
The story is long. Are 1500 employees, with many of them installed in a building of three thousand square meters.Face already has to change to another five thousand (square meters). Has the issue of computerization of all processes. There is a lot of paper on top of the table, ten, fifteen years ago. Nowadays informatization you want to have faster access to environmental permits. There are also underpaid employee. How can one give a license to a venture of billions of dollars as the subway and have official who earns $ 3000? Can not anyone in the market to assume responsibility for that this value. Anyway, it is an administrative issue and I’m on the environmental issue. The party made a new option and give myself the right to remain in the House as the most voted city councilman.
Among its projects for 2013, Mr.. Board intends to take some aimed at improving the conditions of the registry?
That does not fit the Parliament is an initiative of the Executive. It is clear that collaborate in order to pass legislation that improves the situation of the employees. I work for the protection of animals and the mayor Haddad confirmed that we will usher in the beginning of next year another hospital for dogs and cats in the north, and let’s move on to open another in the south. About the kennel and the Center for Zoonosis Control (CCZ), is expected to make a full publicity campaign for the population to adopt animals to empty kennel. The projects are the same in recent decades, ie, we continue to struggle for what we believe, for the protection of animals and we are fine with the mayor. He tends to do a good government.
What will be the position of the PV in the House against the government Haddad?
I was never any basis for mayor. Looking for work, but never be based. We had a secretary in the government (Joseph) Serra (PSDB) and the party was much opposition to certain proposals even having its secretariat. Now will be the same. We will cooperate with the government. If you must criticize, let’s do it. The PV will not be base, but will help the party that tends to govern Sao Paulo Haddad, especially on environmental issues.
The PV will have representation on the Steering Committee of the Board and its committees?
I believe so. The PV is not attached to posts, but inside of proportionality, which is the proposal of the PT, the Green Party would be entitled to the 2nd Secretary of the Board. The PV also claims the presidency of a strong standing committee, which is now being negotiated by the bench.
About the opposition PSDB must be isolated in the next Legislature?
I believe will PSDB on one side and the other PT. But you can have a block PSB-PV-PSD, with fifteen councilors, in the near term. The question is dynamic. But it tends to be a consensus that the 1st of January there will be surprises (in plenary).
The sr. Haddad states that already have a large majority in the House, avoiding difficulties in the approval of projects?
The former mayor José Serra (PSDB) had no majority in the House and approved all projects that benefited the population. The Kassab secured a majority, but when it came to important projects he approved including opposition vote. Haddad would not say that you are worried about making a support base. He is opening spaces, even if the speeches, to discuss with all parties, including the opposition. Let’s wait for it to happen.
What are the priorities for the Legislature this year?
Has the Master Plan, which should be a matter for society to revisit what we want for the next twenty years, also proposed the Arc Future (campaign promise Haddad). I think the House will discuss many urban issues, zoning and architecture in the first half. Anyway, Haddad put their proposals in the Legislature.
And what will be his first project in 2013?
Not for lack of laws that the city is degraded. I’m not getting manufacturing parliamentary laws, despite having made the law of Shh, the Clean City, the Animal Welfare … are few laws, but in fact are working. Let’s expand the hospitals of dogs and cats in the city, a great novelty. It’s the day-to-day, I hope to match that got votes.
The sr. imagined winning over 130,000 votes in the last election?
He had not expected this, but I was always very well rated. Our theme is the same for all campaigns, speeches and the same entities that support us. This shows the impact of our work in the House.
The proposal of Mr.. defense of ecology, fauna and flora, tends to gain more appeal to voters of a city like São Paulo?
I do not work with the appeal of society. I come from the ecological movement of the 70s, I had several moments of environmental protection. I have no new proposals. We want to ensure that already exists, extend, continue the debate on protection of fauna. Not that I did have such a campaign to vote, campaign I do every day. I’m not doing it to say what people want to hear. Not only do the project, as I give support on the issue of the budget and also the update.
