With the name Vasily Bochkarev is the whole epoch of development and, perhaps, the heyday of the Penza region. Someone jokingly called him crazy, and someone, with awe, – “Governor.” And all because this man had an amazing ability to make plans, implement them and never stop. For him it was always hard to keep up. And journalists, and colleagues, and crisis. It’s amazing — what a difficult time the country was experiencing during the 18 years of his governorship, the region continued razrastatsya, and construction does not stop him even for one day. Today, we asked experts to recall and tell us what you remember most of them ex-Governor of the Penza region. Than primarily owes him his native region.
Vice-President of the Independent Foundation Center of political technologies Georgy Chizhov:
– Penza oblast is a very complicated region and the structure of industry, natural resources, and geographical location. In 90-e years it was a very hard crisis, but Vladimir Putin has managed to stabilize the situation. Now the region is good, the middling, and he Bochkarev already developed in the 2000s secured a strong place in the successful governors, favored by the Kremlin. But his path was not strewn with roses. There were moments when dissatisfaction with his work was very high. The voters and the administrative unit to evaluate his performance a mixed review. It was difficult to imagine that the change of the Federal government he will stay in his post. With the advent of Putin opponents Bochkareva many times attempts were made to secure his removal from office, but it had no results. The Kremlin appreciated Vasily Kuzmich. You know, in the Penza region have long walks is a saying: “to Live in Railway area”. It’s like, to live like Christ in his bosom. Prior to his governorship, Bochkarev was the head of this district and turned it into a prosperous region.
Head of Department of the information of GAU AT “Information center “Penzenskaya Pravda, Vladislav Belyakov:
– Vasily Kuzmich was a tradition on Mondays to arrange meetings. And they are always invited journalists. And between us, correspondents were constantly debate: who will once again go on that show. Because in other words, these meetings could not be called. All were eager for the show! For me and for my colleagues Bochkarev was newsmakers one. Us this Monday enough for the whole week, to quietly prepare for the release of the news strip. A substantial part of his projects was, of course, anecdotal. He urged officials to lose weight, I wanted bison to be imported from Canada, wanted all the fields to sow flax, oilseed, which can be food and fuel. During his governorship, we have become the sports capital of the Volga region (as fitness centres and swimming pools per capita not, perhaps, anywhere), our region has opened a new concert hall, the Philharmonic, theatres…. With investors it was quite good to negotiate. Singapore, Turkey, France… Yes, many countries have invested in the region. He loved to communicate with people, drive around the areas to see the business to get underway. There was a feeling that he understands all the industries. Teachers he taught to teach, doctors to heal… it Is at his initiative opened the Institute of advanced training of doctors, which operates to this day.Related posts:
