The mood at the Starnberg CSU is consistently positive.
The chairwoman was confirmed in office, and the local branch took a position on pressing issues in the city.
Starnberg - Praise from the district chairwoman, pride in the election result, smooth board elections and an optimistic view of the future: At the Starnberg CSU, the protagonists shone with the sun over the lake on Tuesday evening.
The 27 members present unanimously confirmed the previous chairwoman Dr.
Charlotte Meyer-Bülow in office for two more years.
The 38-year-old lawyer took over the chair from Stefan Frey two years ago. "She is good and great," said the district administrator in his greeting about his successor. “We need women like that.” Rudi Nirschl, with his 50-year membership in the CSU, said: “Hats off.” Meyer-Bülow and her team had a “super election campaign” last year. The CSU had grown from six to eight city councilors in the local elections in March 2020 and was able to celebrate Patrick Janik's success in the mayoral election.
The biggest urban problem currently is the very difficult budget situation, said Meyer-Bülow.
“Starnberg has no money.” Additional income could only be achieved by increasing the trade tax - and then via the new Schorn industrial estate.
Against the background of “considerable nature conservation concerns” and “problematic transport links”, the CSU boss was ready to talk on one point: “The size of the industrial area can be discussed.” She was very optimistic about finding a solution.
CSU is happy about its own priorities in the city council
Meyer-Bülow looked back on the first year of the current city council period with a certain satisfaction. On the one hand, the mood under Patrick Janik had changed for the better, on the other hand, the CSU had succeeded in setting its own priorities. Among other things, she mentioned the reintroduction of school buses, digitization in schools and a comprehensive proposal to improve the situation of bicycle traffic.
Long-time local councilor Gerd Weger wanted to know what the status of the lake connection is. "We are looking for a solution that is affordable for everyone," replied Meyer-Bülow. The railway is also coming towards the city in the ongoing talks, she said, citing the location of the platforms as an example. “It's going well,” added Deputy Mayor Angelika Kammerl and praised Patrick Janik. "He's an excellent negotiator."
Kammerl was elected secretary in the subsequent election of the board of directors - as the successor to Andreas Weger, who in future will be one of Meyer-Bülow's deputies alongside Robert Weiß and Stephanie Weber.
Thomas Beigel will remain the treasurer, while Rudi Nirschl will be elected for the first time.
The assembly elected four established members of Stefan Frey, Gerd Weger, Karl Müller and Johanna Frühauf as assessors - and four newcomers: Xaver Klingler from Leutstetten, Katharina Hutterer from Söcking, Marcus Schweiger from Hanfeld and Christiane Blomeyer-Kühner from Percha.
District chairwoman Stefanie von Winning praised the CSU's largest local association in the district with 191 members (70 percent men, average age 60.7 years).
He was the most active in the county, she said.
