At 14.00 of Wednesday, December 23, in the beginning of the 17th regular meeting session, City Duma deputy chairman Roman Petrukhin proposed to begin the agenda with the city head appointment, without objections from the deputies.
Following that, his colleague Ivan Krasnov read the excerpts from the Penza city charter on election of the city head, after which Roman Petrukhin called to begin the candidate promotion procedure.
Deputy Vladimir Mutovkin came forward with a proposal to elect Vladimir Savelyev, whose candidacy was supported by the regional United Russia party branch during the 21st local conference on December 22, as the new city head.
He was the only candidate suggested.
According to deputy Victor Vorobyev, Valery Savelyev is a good manager and chief.
“He knows how to listen to people who come to see him,” he said, urging the colleagues to vote for this candidate.
In his turn, Vladimir Mutovkin supported Victor Vorobyev, and stressed that Valery Savelyev knows and understands the troubles of the people, has been holding the chief medical officer post for a long time, and has the right managerial skills and personal qualities.
“Therefore, I support his candidacy and advise you to support him as well,” Vladimir Mutovkin said.
As a result, Roman Petrukhin motioned to advance the issue into secret vote, with only two options – for or against Valery Savelyev.
After the vote, the accounting committee of deputies Ivan Krasnov, Victor Vorobyev and Alexander Strelnikov left for the count, with a break in the session.
