Action, the political movement of the ex minister Carlo Calenda, “lands” in the regional council in Lombardy. Niccolò Carretta, Bergamo regional councilor of the Lombardi Civici Europeisti, announced the move to Action, joining the mixed group. “I put my person and my work in the regional council at the disposal of this liberal-democratic, credible and serious project – declares Carretta -. I am sure that in addition to the battles on health, the economy and young people that Action has been carrying out since its birth, I will have the opportunity to implement the regional path with an eye that focuses above all on the revision of the health system, environmental sustainability and the improvement of transport services “.
Niccolò Carretta, born in 1991, is an energy engineer. Municipal councilor of the civic list in Bergamo since 2014, supports “his” mayor Giorgio Gori in the race for president of the Lombardy Region in 2018 by running for the Bergamo board in the Gori list, being elected. Subsequently the list changed its name to Lombardi Civici Europeisti. Carretta was a member of the Democratic Party until about a year ago.
Calenda: “Carretta’s adhesion is wonderful news”
“Joining Carretta’s Action is wonderful news for our movement – observed Carlo Calenda and Matteo Richetti, respectively MEP and senator -. Action was born to aggregate and enhance experiences such as that of Niccolò and all those who make politics for service, and without losing relationship with the territory and the needs of people. In recent months we have worked together improving the measures of the Lombardy Region on the front of the health and economic emergency. Now we will do it within the same party and with the involvement of all territorial groups of Action “, they conclude.
“We are happy for the accession of Councilor Carretta with whom an intense and profitable work on regional and other issues has already begun. His presence will give voice to the many proposals that come from the Lombard territories and on which the Action thematic tables are already working. Together we will give impetus and strength to the establishment of a liberal pole which the current political scenario needs to break the dualism between populists and sovereigns “, declared Mariasole Mascia and Giancarlo Pignone, Lombard Action coordinators.
