Csu district parliamentary group meets for retreat in marktsteft

"If the CSU as the strongest fraction in the state parliament is the heart chamber of bavarian politics, then the CSU district parliament fraction is the heart chamber of politics between geiselwind and gnodstadt", CSU state parliament member barbara becker underlined the self-confidence of the 18 CSU district councilors at the second fraction retreat in marktsteft, it says in a press release.

The CSU’s desire to play an active role in shaping the city is demonstrated by proposals such as the call for reusable systems for to-go coffee or the introduction of subsidized demand charges for young people and senior citizens. In order to structure their own work even more strongly, the christian socialists took a close look at the topics of ecology, culture and mobility.

In the area of culture, it is not only the 100-million-euro project "kitzingen state archives" that needs to be secured. It is also important for the CSU to take sufficient time in the development of the environmental education center decided on at the marktsteft site in order to bring a maximum of demand resources to the kitzingen district.

In the meantime, not only the communities of ebensfeld and zapfendorf are working together, but also the districts of bamberg and lichtenfels, supported by oberfranken offensiv. For the symbolic kick-off, the project participants now met directly at the junction of the counties.

Zapfendorf’s mayor volker dittrich explained the history of the project: the idea originated in oberleiterbach. Angela hennemann, the second chairwoman of the horticultural association, then sought talks with the two communities.

"We have always thought we had to travel immeasurable distances to stumble upon an earth-like planet," dressing emphasized in a release from her institute. "Now we realize that another earth is probably already waiting to be discovered in our cosmic neighborhood."

The scientists had searched for red dwarf suns with planets in the data of the planet hunter "kepler. Red dwarfs are the most common type of star in our galaxy: they account for about three out of four stars in the milky way.
