Although the Haarer Green bosses were re-elected, they also had to put up with a lot of criticism.

The criticism: The local association is outdated and discouraged.

Haar

- With 16 out of 18 votes, the Haarer Greens confirmed the two local spokesmen Ulrich Leiner and Ulrike Olbrich in their offices for another two years.

There was praise for the work so far from those present, but also criticism: the local association was too old, too few female members and too discouraged, were the allegations.

Eckard Maurus complained that there was only one green councilor “and only eight out of 32 women were among the members.

It's a disaster for the future. ”For Primavera Centonza, the party lacks youth and courage.

“Where's the 'wow' that the people of Haar say, that's great green politics?” Georg Feifel criticized the fact that the Greens in the local council had not approved the SPD's proposal to ban rock gardens and gabion fences.

"For me that would be classic Green policy, it works in other communities too."


"That shouldn't really be"

Leiner and Olbrich were self-critical. You have to improve, but you can't compare yourself to the CSU, which has well over 200 members in Haar. "Unfortunately we have to coordinate tactically from time to time, that shouldn't be the case," said Leiner. In general, one wants to strive for the youth and more women in the party and in daily work, but the work should be spread over more shoulders.


The Greens looked to the future.

For Leiner, three subject areas are decisive in the federal government, but also for hair: When it comes to climate policy, one cannot afford to do just a little;

Leiner: "Green politics and climate policy are not for an elite, but for everyone." Everyone in the local council would always nod when it came to the subject of the climate.

"But as soon as we say that it also costs something, many people dismiss it," said the local spokesman.

"But in Haar it's about the big projects like heat supply and thermal insulation."


"We have to eat regionally and with as little meat as possible"

When it comes to traffic and mobility, one must break away from the old idea that public space belongs to the car, regardless of whether it is a combustion engine or an electric car.

“We have to drastically reduce motorized traffic in Haar, the public space has to belong to the people.

But when we demand Tempo 30 in Leibstrasse, the nagging starts in the local council, ”said Leiner.


The third area is the turnaround in agriculture: where does the food come from, what will we eat in the future?

“We have to eat regionally and with as little meat as possible - although not everyone becomes a vegetarian or vegan.

For hair this means, among other things, an organic market and as far as I know it looks very good there, ”said Leiner.


Ulrike Olbrich's focus is on social issues and education.

The past 15 Corona months have clearly shown the problems for families or single parents.

When working from home, at school and at home, there were economic hardships.

"We Greens are the only ones on the municipal council who think about the little people, for example when it comes to daycare fees or swimming pool entrance fees," said Olbrich.

When she thinks of schools and how they cope with crises with broadband, online teaching and homeschooling, the only word that comes to mind is “crappy”.
