According to Burkhard Köppen, leader of the CSU parliamentary group in the city council of Erding, you have to remember this name: Uwe Lallinger.
Erding - The 30-year-old has been the new chairman of the JU Erding for a week. At the CSU regulars' table on Sunday, Lallinger is likely to earn his first political spurs.
And although he is a trained carpenter, real estate buyer and administration specialist, Köppen taught him a few lessons – within the party as well as in dealing with political opponents. Köppern also assured Lallinger of "a good list position" for the 2026 city council election.
Köppen reported from the city council "that we have received a violent waddle in Erding-West". He was referring to the CSU's defeat in the referendum on the establishment of a food logistics company (we reported). However, he told the other factions: "There will be no settlement without logistics, similar to Baustoffe Auer, alpha or Erdinger Weißbräu. Just saying no is not a responsibility for urban development."
Köppen did not want to accept the argument that there are no forces for logisticians. He recalled the many refugees. "What unites us all is getting them to work as quickly as possible." There would be an opportunity to do so here. Erding is also falling behind in terms of trade and income tax revenues, also because the baby boomers are gradually retiring.
Lallinger proposed a commercial yard based on the Munich model for the air base. The city, or rather an urban company, could acquire land and pass it on to craft businesses at very low rents. "That would be economic development." Köppen praised the idea and said to the JU chief: "Propose this to the mayor."
Within the party, Köppen attacked the delegates who had inflicted an unexpectedly bad vote on the deputy CSU district chairmen Max Götz and Ulrike Scharf a week ago with 81 and 89 percent respectively. "In the CSU, I actually assumed swarm intelligence, but that was swarm stupidity." This is because both had been damaged as state or district council candidates.
Despite tight budgets, declining income and large expenses, Köppen said that there would be no way around renewing the school gymnasium in Langengeisling and building a canteen.
