Splake 127 is running in the local constituency of Kossfeld-Steinfurt II – a CDU candidate has won there in the past. Frederick Ostendorff, who went through the list and is no longer in the upcoming federal election for reasons of age, joined the Greens in 2013. In addition to Spalke, Mark Heinrichmann (CDU) from Havixbeck, Johannes Waldmann (SPD) from Eschberg and René Aring (FDP) from Kossfeld are known in the autumn in constituency 127, who want to fight for the citizens’ vote.
“I am very happy, this is a great result,” Spelak said to our newspaper after being shortlisted. For Billerbaker, who has been with the Greens for only five years, a jump from “zero to 100”.
She initially applied for 19th place in the list, but was subject to another candidate. In the next attempt for 21st place, it worked, where she was ahead of Maria Nisteriu from the Duren Green District Association: Spleck had 231 votes out of 263 votes. The affected 53-year-old in the state addresses the conference over the weekend with a committed speech in which he has focused on strengthening rural areas and regional structures. “We only borrowed the earth from our children,” he held a poster with which the Greens campaigned in 1983. Spleck pointed out that the energy transition is taking place mainly in rural areas. It plays a central role for the ecological future and that is why farms should be supported. “I want to create sustainable local supplies along regional value chains from region to plate,” said the 53-year-old, who runs a farm for older horses in Billerbeck. This change would only be successful if the citizens were taken along and there were fair and adequate conditions for the companies. Spleck called the expansion of digitization in rural areas another topic.
Spelak is the spokesperson for the Greens’ forest, agriculture and rural areas in North Rhine-Westphalia and from 2016 to 2020 was the spokesman for the Kosfeld District Association. He has been active in the District Council and Billbecker Council since 2020. First as a knowledgeable citizen. “If I come to the Bundestag, I will no longer be able to run the zilla parishad and council offices,” she says. But then she would like to continue living in Bilbeck. And have to go to Berlin by train.
