Mayor Dennis Weilmann

Mayor Dennis Weilmann
©Lars Landmann

Hello and welcome!

My name is Dennis Weilmann - I have been Lord Mayor of my home city of Wolfsburg since September 2021. I want to make sure that life in Wolfsburg continues to be good and even better. Together with you, the people of Wolfsburg, I would like to make my contribution to making Wolfsburg livable and lovable for the future.

A functioning urban society without voluntary work, for example, is inconceivable to me. And that is why the focus must be on this voluntary contribution to the common good. During my term as mayor, I will take numerous measures to strengthen volunteerism! But we are also seeing right now how important a healthy and functioning local economy is. An intact local economy ultimately also ensures that social and community programs and projects can be supported. Another main focus is on education, culture, sports as well as other important issues.

Our hometown has always been dynamic, bright and economically well positioned. But we must not stand still! We must move forward, make courageous decisions, always be a corner faster. This also includes the topic of downtown development. In the short term, we need a better quality of stay - it must be fun to drive into the city and spend the day there. That's what I'm working for: a lively, attractive, green center that appeals to all generations! I will work to ensure that all people who want to live in Wolfsburg also find a suitable home here - and above all that Wolfsburg also remains the home of the people of Wolfsburg.

For me, a citizen-oriented attitude and responsiveness is a cornerstone of good politics, which is why talking to you in person is very important to me. I look forward to your wishes and suggestions.

Your Dennis Weilmann
