U predigri smo svibanjskih lokalnih izbora. Od 1990. godine volimo reći „nakon prvih demokratskih izbora“. No i oni imaju svoju pa čak i kutinsku jubilarnu prošlost. Uostalom treba čitati i baciti pogled na izborne rezultate s tablica objavljenih prije deset godina povjesničara Hrvoja Matkovića u monografiji o Kutini. Sve, osobito stranačke izbore prate i velike skupštine. Najveća u kutinskoj povijesti zbila se 21. siječnja 1923. godine, dakle prije 90 godina na kutinskom sajmištu, čitamo iz knjige Dražen Kovačević – Franko Mirošević: Nemiri i stranački život u Moslavini 1917. – 1923., a koja ovih dana izlazi iz tiska. Kutina je tog dana bila domaćin za oko 20.000 pristalica i simpatizera HRSS-a. Došli su iz Garešnice, Pakraca, Novske, Siska i Čazme, a na skupu bio je kutinski kraj, organizacije iz Gornje Vlahiničke, Selišta, Ludinice, Slatine, Gornje Jelenske, Popovače, Mikleuške, Donje Vlahiničke, Ludine, Okola, Potoka, Volodera, Krivaja, Gračenice, Ilove, Husaina, Repušnice, dakle cijela Moslavina, piše u Slobodnom domu jedan od prvaka stranke August Košutić.

The History of Kutina
The name Kutina was mentioned for the first time in the Charter of the Hungarian and Croatian king Bela IV. The Charter regulates the boundaries between two estates of the Garić and Gračenica districts.
Kutina (KOTINNA) was first mentioned as a parish with the church of All Saints in 1334 and then again later with St. Catherine’s church in 1488. The documents of the Zagreb Chapter (Kaptol), dated 14 August 1363, as many as three Kutinas were mentioned: Upper, Lower and Great. Kutina as a settlement was mentioned several times later in 14th and 15th centuries as Kothennya, Kotenya and Katynna.
In 12th, 13th and 14th centuries, Kutina was an integral part of the Gračenica district. The lords of Kutina at that time were the Ruhovic (Rohfy), Vecerin and Geletic families, noble families of Bršljanovacki, Roh de Decse, Bakac, Auch and Cupors Moslavacki. Later, Kutina and Moslavina were linked to the Szecsens and Erdödys, whose palace in Kutina houses the Moslavina Museum. The members of these families were quite famous in the Croatian history. One of them was Demetrije II Čupor Moslavacki, who was appointed bishop in the old Croatian diocese of Knin in 1446. He is the author of the Kutina coat of arms: a gold-rimmed square with four times four red and silver squares in four rows on a blue background. A magpie, symbolizing striving for wealth, sits on the top of the square. During several centuries, the Čupors gave away their land to the hermitic order of Paulists, who left a profound mark in the culture of Moslavina.
Politically, Kutina became a county in 1745, was joined with the Pozega county until 1886, then joined the Bjelovar-Krizevci County, Osijek, the Sava Banovina and finally today it is within the Sisak-Moslavina County.
Kutina had its first teacher in the mid 18th century, and in 1789, the first school was built. At request of Count of Erdödy, Emperor Ferdinand IV proclaimed Kutina a market town on March 3, 1837 by a preserved original Charter.
At that time, Kutina already had a surgeon and a chemist’s. In 1850, a post office opened. Moslavina wines were exhibited at an international tradeshow in Vienna in 1857. The telephone was installed in 1895 and the railway was built in 1897. In 1886, a great fire broke out in the Kutina square that destroyed a large number of old wooden cottages, among them the today’s building of Moslavina Museum. The chapel of St Francis Xavier was also destroyed. Dr. Gustav Baron had a stone crucifix put up in its place in the park, which was moved to a place near the church in 1956. In 1901, lawyer Hoholac financed the construction of the main city square which has been one of town landmarks ever since.
On 750th anniversary of the name Kutina being first mentioned in writing, a sculpture, called Kutina’s Fairy (Kutinska vila) was put up in King Tomislav Square. It is almost like a living person in our time and space, communicating both on a symbolic and social level. It was made by Ivan Branko Imrovic, academic painter, in 2006.
