Un primar care da valoare expresiei "si-ar vinde si sufletul pentru un pumn
de bani"...  Si uite-asa, mai apare o stire negativa despre romani in presa
internationala.  Nu prea cred sa mai existe in lume multe cazuri de edili
care sa prefere distrugerea patrimoniului pe care, la momentul investirii in
functie, s-au angajat sa il protejeze si sa il puna in valoare.  Si cu
siguranta este o premiera: unicul primar care se opune includerii in
patrimoniul UNESCO a localitatii pe care o conduce.

ge/3444178/story.html> more important to mayor than heritage
Agence France-Presse
August 26, 2010 1:06 AM
It's a rare day when a mayor balks at proposals that his town be entered on
the World Heritage List next to such illustrious sites as the Taj Mahal.

But Mayor Eugen Furdui of Rosia Montana -- a picturesque Carpathian mountain
village with rich gold deposits and ancient galleries that tell the story of
mining back to Roman times -- is adamant.

Mining is still his priority, but the modern sort: a Canadian open-cast gold
mine project that is backed by officials but has split this town of 3,000
and drawn criticism from environmentalists, archeologists, historians and
some high-profile activists such as British actress Vanessa Redgrave.

"If Rosia Montana were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List, that would
automatically mean that mining cannot go through. And we want this mining
project to be carried on," Furdui told AFP.

Ahead of a January deadline that could tip the balance, the pros and cons
have mobilized anew at headquarters long set up in the town's Old Square.
Rosia Montana's green hills are said to hold more than 300 tonnes of gold,
one of the biggest deposits in Europe.
