Today is an important day for Heraklion because after the big earthquake in Parnitha in 1999, in addition to huge human losses, we also had huge damage to almost all buildings. One of these public buildings that faced problems was the fourth primary school in Heraklion. It has taken us so many years to be happy to tell our fellow citizens that we are starting construction on a new wing, and they know that this did not happen by chance. Since 2014 when I had the honor of representing our city, one of the first things my classmates and I have done is see what we could do better with our schools and honestly until 2019 I found closed doors everywhere. I want to thank G. Patoulis since for the second time in this period the help of the Region was decisive. In addition to funding the addition of the new wing of the fourth elementary school after the new 2019 earthquake, when I asked for the District’s assistance with a $1.5 million damage restoration request, the District responded positively, noting that “children are the first”. I also want to thank the managing director and the president of KtYp, as well as the executives of the services. I really feel that for the first time someone has seriously addressed the problem of the 4th grade in our city.
