The last barometer of the Valencia City Council of this legislature, carried out already on the runway of the 28M elections, serves to put notes on the management of the different public administrations. From the 2,358 face-to-face and random interviews, it can be deduced that the best evaluation of the management is given by the consistory governed by Compromís and PSPV with a 5.5. One tenth behind is the note (5.4) that the residents of Valencia give to the management of the Generalitat Valenciana (with a Botànic government made up of the three leftist forces); The worst unemployed is the Executive of Pedro Sánchez who fails with a 4.4.
A trend that is reproduced in the question about whether "in general, in the last year the situation has improved". For 40% in the city, the situation is better, a figure that falls in the case of the Valencian Community (34.7%, although it is higher than those who believe that it has worsened) and falls even more at the state level ( 22.4%). More than half of those surveyed consider that in Spain the situation has gotten worse.
Another figure for the optimism of the municipal governments and that yesterday the Councilor for Innovation and Knowledge Management, Carlos Galiana, wanted to highlight is the satisfaction of living in the city, which grew to 8.4 points ―in December 2022 it was 8.1―. Galiana pointed out that other cities such as Barcelona celebrated having reached 7.5 when in these eight years of Ribó as head of the council, "the score has not dropped below 8".
This survey, number 21 and the last of the mandate, is dedicated to mobility and reflects that citizens value with 7.1 points the ease and comfort of moving within the city, they mostly walk on a weekday (65, 5%), and four out of five residents support projects to convert streets and squares into pedestrian zones.
The most serious problems facing the city, according to those surveyed, are the lack of cleanliness, traffic and circulation problems, and unemployment and low wages. This last problem is the main one in the Valencian Community and in Spain. Galiana wanted to highlight that taxes are not one of the issues that personally affect the residents of the city the most.
The survey also asks about the management of public services. The bike path, markets and cultural activities are the best valued. Only one is suspended: public car parks. Most believe that his management has worsened in the last year.
Another aspect covered by the survey is the perception of the four-day work week, which will soon be launched on a pilot basis. 40% bet on the reduction, which is evaluated with 7.8 points because it contributes to work-life balance, health and social life.
