Mayor Bibas at Jpost conference: MKs seek headlines, mayors work for residents

At the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference on Wednesday Haim Bibas, Chairman of the Federation of Local Authorities and mayor of Modi’in-Macabim-Reut, said that Israel’s mayors, not Knesset members, truly know and represent Israeli citizens’ needs and concerns.

“More than once, mayors have not hesitated to criticize their party’s representatives in the Knesset, for choosing to fan the flames, between Jews and Arabs just to grab the headlines and by doing so, cause much harm to society,” said Bibas, “We [mayors] can see beyond political views and differences, our mandate comes from our residents and we work to benefit their lives.”
