Elections closer and closer
Among many hunters hearing about an electoral appointment, the feeling is very close to that of an itch due to a strong urticaria and in some ways it seems to be shared. But if the allergy to the next messages that will begin with "dear hunter friend" is palpable, on the other hand we cannot escape this deadline, if only because we have seen in recent years too the importance of the regional institution with respect to possibility of carrying out our great passion. The regional law 26/93 in fact identifies the methods of our activity, in compliance with the national law 157/92, even with possible limitations of species and times deriving from census activities or from various environmental issues. We remember very well the openings, closures, limitations, some absurd, of the latest hunting calendars, which we hope will not repeat themselves. And the lack of positions with respect to many issues, one of all that of the rings who are questioning the very activity of hunting from a fixed ambush.
Lombardy Regional Council
Our fate does not depend only on politicians; Even the regional offices contribute theirs, and a lot, with their convictions and their fears of denunciations, always ready like swords of Damocles. In order for all this to be avoided, we must contribute to electing to the Lombardy Regional Council, on 12 and 13 February, less than a month from today, people who have demonstrated over the years and with deeds the true closeness to our category and our problems . Naturally without prejudice to the respect that goes to every candidate and every political formation that presents itself and contends for the seat on the Lombardy Regional Council. And since we like to speak clearly and give equally clear indications to our members and their families, we have gone through the list of candidates, no less than 120, for a seat in Brescia, knowing that only 10 can be elected, and that therefore the fragmentation of the voting does not benefit our world.
candidates to be elected
And we come to our indications, expressed only as a contribution to our cause of hunters, without different assessments of individual people for other factors, however real. For the candidate Fontana, our Alessandro Sala, former Regional Councilor and Provincial Councilor for Hunting and current President of ATC Brescia, appears on the Fontana President list; the outgoing Councilor Floriano Massardi is re-nominated for the Northern League, who on many occasions and with concrete proposals has made him feel like a hunter close to hunters; for Brothers of Italy the outgoing Councilor Barbara Mazzali is re-nominated, also a signatory of various proposals for our world in the legislature that is ending, and Carlo Bravo is also re-nominated, first of the non-elected in the last legislature, of our ACL hunters' association competitor but who if elected, we are sure, could only serve the interests of the whole hunting world.
For the candidate for President Moratti, Guido Galperti, also former Honorable Member and Provincial Councilor for Hunting, is presented in the Third Pole-Action list, always close to our world with facts. For the candidate President Majorino, the Mayor of Brescia Emilio Del Bono is a candidate in the PD list, of whose closeness to the Province and to the then President Mottinelli in the matter of containment of wild boars we are certain. So what to do? First, put aside the controversy and go vote. No one will vote for us and no one, even if they go, will do us the favor of voting for our friends. If we believe that something needs to be done to give more consideration to the past, even the recent one, as hunters, we must unite on these candidates while respecting our political sympathies. Of course we know that among the priorities that concern us as citizens there are certainly other issues, from health care to welfare, from work to school, from transport to tourism and the relationship with local authorities. But on these fundamental questions we believe that all the Councilors who will be elected will want to give their attention in a concrete way; certainly with the political differences that we have very clear and which, precisely for this reason, will determine a President and a clear majority. However, let us remember that it is useful to have elected friends even in the minorities that will be determined. Since the general rules are given by the Regional Council in its entirety, and for matters relating to hunting, most of the time also in a transversal way (source: FIDC Brescia).
