THE Mayor of Gaucin has flown the nest after bankrupting the town’s coffers.
Branded an “ostrich” for burying his head in the ground by opposition rivals, Francisco Ruiz (pictured) has seemingly disappeared without a trace.
“He cannot bury his head like an ostrich, he needs to come back and find solutions, as this situation is not only his fault, but also that of his team,” explained former PSOE Mayor Teodoro de Molina.
Molina believes the pressure caused by the town’s financial problems led to the Mayor’s disappearance.
“The role was too big for him. Everyone in Gaucin knows he has disappeared,” Mollina added.
Meanwhile, Ruiz’s deputy, Rosa Blanco, insisted he was on leave for personal reasons.
She explained that Francisco Macias was now the acting Mayor.
