Dear fellow citizens

We have recently presented our candidates for the upcoming municipal elections.

It is often stated and confirmed that it is pleasant  to live within our community. This statement motivates us to continue our commitment to our fellow citizens to the best of  our knowledge and ability.

You are aware of the fact  that the last few years have not been an easy time for any of us. The pandemic and the war in Ukraine have shaken up our society and will continue to present us with major challenges.

« Är Leit » will continue to consistently and sustainably work to maintain and improve the quality of life in our community and carry on with the social, infrastructural, educational, cultural and environmental achievements.

With this brochure, we would like to present to you, dear fellow citizens, the recent projects that have already been realised or are in the process of being realised in Lorentzweiler.

Thank you Jos Roller

After 47 years, Jos Roller has stepped down from his municipal political office. As mayor, he led the municipality with competence and foresight for more than 34 years.

Jos has always been a role model for « his » team and will continue to stand by « Är Leit ».

We would therefore like to sincerely thank Jos and wish him all the best for the future.
