The proposed DUP is consistent with the objectives we set ourselves, with the resources available, with temporal sustainability, local economic reality and the city's welfare, which is not assistance but social well-being. It is a document respectful of the regulations, which is placed in the right balance between public and private. It would be easy to make a deficit budget, overreaching, but we play on equal terms, in fairness ". Minority advisors are critical to the document. Somaglia (Forza Italia): "It is a document of late consiliatura, without major news.

For Marengo (Somaglia per Bra) "more could have been done for the job, giving concrete help to the companies they hire. Among the public works, there is no mention of the failure of the tracks, and of the pavements in the street Orti, a cathedral in the desert ". "There is a lack of answers on important issues, such as the Verduno hospital, the return of the Justice of the Peace, the destination of Movicentro and Palazzo Garrone - Tripodi's comment (Bra Tomorrow) - and more could be done for road maintenance and the cycle paths ".
