As a committed European, I grew up on a farm in Austria. This is the reason why the future of our rural regions and communities is particularly important to me. No matter whether it is on local, national or European level: In the European Parliament I want to shape the future for our next generations.
Since I am a farmer, I am used to hard work. Furthermore, I have learned to appreciate principles such as family cohesion, homeland solidarity as well as a down-to-earth attitude. This is why I believe that politics need more common sense and a direct connection to the European citizens in order to improve our lives and home countries.
