Have your say in the coming elections

The Resident newspaper invites local residents in the Manilva and Casares area to attend an informal meeting at the Mayfair Music Club, Plaza Ginebra, Sabinillas on Wednesday 29 October from 6 pm.

This is the first of a number of informal meetings over the coming months in various venues in Manilva, Casares and Estepona to gauge the mood of the foreign residents and to find out their concerns and aspirations so that we can communicate these to the local politicians both in government and in opposition so that these concerns can be addressed in their forthcoming manifestos in the lead up to the forthcoming local elections in May 2015.

Some of the areas we are particularly keen to find out your opinions on are:

  • Security
  • Cleaning
  • Economy, Local Taxes and Business
  • Communication and Transport
  • The Town Hall and Foreign Residents

Please feel free to make any suggestions on concerns and aspirations you would like to see discussed on the night. Send them to
