The SPD district parliamentary group continues to oppose the planned job creation in the district office. Before the Finance Committee meeting this Monday, she submitted a detailed application. In it, parliamentary group leader Florian Schardt and several co-signatories reject, among other things, positions that actually fall under the jurisdiction of the Free State or for which, in their opinion, district politics is not the right actor. “The SPD is not per se against job creation,” says the justification. “But it is the task of the district council to control the district administrator.” The staff in the district office have almost doubled within just ten years from 745 to 1461 jobs, the per capita staff costs have risen much more than in the other districts and fewer new jobs are currently being created there. Therefore, critical questions are necessary.
