Mayor election Albstadt 2023

Dear fellow citizens of Albstadt,

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the trust you placed in me during yesterday’s election for the office of Lord Mayor. I am very aware of the responsibility entrusted to me by the voters. I want to live up to these expectations.

It will be about shaping the future of our city TOGETHER – that is why it is clear that I want to be a mayor for ALL citizens. Also for those who could not give me their vote yesterday. Let’s tackle the challenges ahead together!

Best regards!
Roland Tralmer

Roland Tralmer, Candidate OB Election Albstadt, Your Mayor for Albstadt 2023

OB election Albstadt 2023

For several months now, I have been approached by many citizens of Albstadt and asked to take this step. The decision to apply for the office of Lord Mayor of our home town of Albstadt was therefore not made on a whim or under the aspect of a “local political career ladder”. In consultation and discussion with numerous fellow citizens – but first and foremost with my family and wife – I have decided to throw my hat into the ring. This is because I believe I can make my contribution to a good future development of our city.

I grew up in Albstadt and like living here. My professional existence with my own law firm was built up here over the last decades, here I am active in numerous associations on a voluntary basis and since 2014 I have been active in the municipal council as chairman of the CDU municipal council faction. I am therefore pleased that my party also unanimously supports me. Party politics, however, is of less importance at the local level. That’s why my candidacy for mayor is expressly non-partisan.

My home is and remains Albstadt. I’ve always lived here and I don’t have to promise to move first if I win the election. I feel like an “Albstadt resident”. Albstadt can only function if each individual district is treated equally. This has always been a matter of course for me and therefore does not need to be an election promise. However, it must not remain lip service, but such self-evident facts must also be implemented by an administration. That is my goal. Our city will only move forward in difficult times if we have a modern city administration that works at “eye level” with the citizens, is also open to criticism and suggestions, and sees itself as a service provider for its residents. Therefore, the mayor is not first and foremost the “head of the city”, but the frontline worker of the inhabitants of our homeland.

Roland Tralmer –
Your Lord Mayor for Albstadt

I bring with me the prerequisites to lead Albstadt into the future: This both due to my legal education and experience in different legal areas, especially in cooperation with our medium-sized businesses. In addition, also through many years of political activity in a wide variety of functions. I am networked on all political levels through my continuous work – a circumstance that is also advantageous for the city of Albstadt with direct contacts on the state and federal level. Since 2019, I have also been a member of the Zollernalbkreis district council.

Albstadt is the largest city in the Zollernalbkreis and the largest payer of district levy. That is why from the very beginning it is necessary to represent the interests of our city at the district level. Here, too, it is possible for me to start immediately at “100%”.

Together with all of you, I would like to change and leave well-trodden paths on which our administration finds itself, where this is necessary for the future viability of our Albstadt. To become and remain fit for the future, a “jolt through the city” must go. A simple “business as usual” is not enough.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the trust you have placed in me in the OB election on 19.03.2023!

    OB election Albstadt 2023 – directional decision for our city.

    Mayor election in Albstadt:
    Where do we stand, where do we want to go?

    Safe living and a functioning economy in Albstadt as a key task

    Albstadt is beautiful and worth living in – and yet the challenges of the future are enormous. As the largest industrial city in the district, Albstadt feels economic fluctuations directly. In economic times as difficult as now, the city must do everything possible to provide relief to citizens and keep the economy running while ensuring the city’s infrastructure.

    This is not easy: In the past decades, a large investment backlog has built up – in halls, schools and other city facilities. That is what we have to manage: Without disadvantaging individual districts, but also with the courage to take unpopular measures. Difficult times require concentration on the essentials: Not getting bogged down with constantly new programs, “work stores” and plans. Instead, focus on the projects that are feasible and indispensable for the future of Albstadt and its residents: Safe living and a functioning economy in our city as a key task.

    In addition, a strengthening of the self-confidence of the people of Albstadt internally and externally in the district: Our city does not need to hide, quite the opposite. Each of our nine districts brings its own special good qualities to the city and must be allowed to develop in its own way.

    You can be a Burgfeldener, Pfeffinger, Laufener, Lautlinger, Margrethausener, Onstmettinger, Tailfinger, Truchtelfinger, Ebinger, as well as Albstädter. Diversity is our strength.

    We need a mayor with management qualities without a training period

    These are the tasks of the future mayor: It is not primarily about representing as “head of the city”. What is needed now are management qualities, leadership skills and anchoring in the economy and associations of our city – the current problems do not allow for long familiarization periods.

    In a city the size of Albstadt, the Lord Mayor must be a “team player”: both in relation to the other mayors and to all other employees. Only when everyone is motivated will a good “product” be delivered. However, this also requires that the mayor sets clear guidelines within the administration and defines the “red lines” for the development of the city as a whole. Leadership skills are needed here – both politically and from the private sector. Important projects must be defined, planned and then also implemented in a targeted manner together with the municipal council. Projects “for the drawer” are not targeted investments in Albstadt’s future and a waste of important resources.
