My name is Andreas Boesen. I am 34 years old and born and raised in Horsens. My family have lived here for generations and now I live here with my own little family; my wife, Louise, who is a lawyer in Horsens and our little daughter, Asta.
I have a Master's degree in Political Science and Public Management, and I work at VIA University College in Horsens at the Engineering Department.
In my spare time, I love the outdoor life, play music and to use the city with friends and family.
I have been City Councilor for 12 years. I am a former Chairman of the International Committee and former Chairman of the Cultural Committee. Right now, I am the Deputy Mayor, Group Chairman of the Socialdemocrats and member of the Finance and Business Committee.
I am also Chairman of the local public water supply company where we work with climate adjustment, groundwater protection and afforestation.
I was elected to the City Council as the youngest member in 2009. Back then, I thought that we could do much for for young people and students in Horsens. Together with a lot of young volunteers, we managed to get me elected and since then we have build student accomodation, opened a student house, created more cultural events, been focusing on international citizens and gived young people a permanent voice in the local debate.
But, we have just started making Horsens a greater city and the potential is great. That is why I seek re-election and that is why I need your vote.
