MAUREN – For the first time since 1991, there will be a VU candidate for the post of president in the municipality of Mauren-Schaanwald: it is Peter Frick. He will go into the election race against Vice President Dominik Amman of the FBP.
After the presentation of the candidate for head of the FBP Mauren-Schaanwald with Vice-Head Dominik Amman, the VU local group has now announced that it will enter the race for the office of head of the municipality – with the member of parliament Peter Frick, as has now been officially announced.
From 1921 to 1924 – i.e. exactly 100 years ago – Rudolf Matt from the People’s Party was the last person in the presidency in Mauren-Schaanwald who was not a member of the Progressive Citizens’ Party (FBP). With Peter Frick as candidate for president, the VU local group is convinced that it will also succeed, as stated in the statement by the Patriotic Union (VU). After Manfred Biedermann in 1991 – more than 30 years ago – there was no longer a candidate for the VU.
“I am very pleased that our local group has placed their trust in me,” explains Peter Frick on the sidelines of Sunday’s annual meeting, according to the announcement. “As a candidate for mayor, I offer a concrete alternative and would like to appeal in particular to all voters who like to break new ground and want a new style.”
The 57-year-old trained postman and social pedagogue is already committed to the common good in many ways, it is said. He has been on the crisis intervention team (KIT) since 2008, and even with civil defense since 1995. Since 2014 he has been a member of the parish youth committee and the parish council. Since 2019, the father of three has presided over the Verein Sicheres Liechtenstein (VSL). Professionally, Peter Frick has been working as a school social worker at the Unterland school center in Eschen since 2017. At the state level, Peter Frick became the first member of parliament in 2017, and he was elected to the House of Representatives in the 2021 state elections
“With my wide range of experience on a personal, professional and other political level, I would like to develop our community together with the people,” says Peter Frick. Above all, we must ensure that Mauren and Schaanwald remain as livable as they are today.”
The official nomination of Peter Frick as mayor candidate was made with the nomination of the municipal council team. In the search for candidates, the local group is already on course and will present strong candidates for the municipal council for Mauren-Schaanwald, as the communication goes on to say.
