Dutchman to become mayor of German town


The way it’s going, Frans Willeme, 58 and Dutch, is gearing up to become Germany’s first-ever elected Dutch mayor. He speaks fluent German with a Dutch accent, like famous Dutch entertainer Rudi Carrell whose career was pretty much in Germany.

Some people in the town of Nordhorn, very close to the Dutch border, where he is running are against the idea of having a foreigner run, but then the elections are open to any member of the EU, so too bad. Those who think further than their prejudices see the town of Nordhorn as going international and writing German history.
