After a few years of being less active due to work and moving around, I have found a new political home in CDU Bad Homburg. My main areas of interest working within the party are, as in the old days in Junge Union, press work and other means of political communication.
Although I am of course too old to still be a member, I still see myself as a friend of my old youth organization, with its local chapter Junge Union Bad Homburg.
An important political issue for me has always been economic policy, particularly the need for lower, simpler taxation, less buerocracy and a general reduction of government influence and regulation in the economy. An important advocate for these issues, particularly within the CDU, is the Mittelstands- und Wirtschaftsvereinigung MIT. I have been interested in the MIT for a long time, and now that I actually am an entrepreneur, I have decided to become active in the local MIT Hochtaunus.
Bürgeraktion pro Flughafen is a private Initiative supporting a quick expansion of Frankfurt Rhein-Main Airport to help Frankfurt maintain its role as a leading European trade and financial center.
Another key area of interest for me in politics is the future of our energy supply. Obstructing nuclear power, in which we were one leading in advanced technologies, and pouring billions over billions into photovoltaics, which contributes next to nothing to our power supply, I see Germany on the completely wrong track.
