Restaurateur and ÖVP local councilor Harald Kratzer left the People’s Party club in the Salzburg local council today, Wednesday.
The landlord and shareholder of the Salzburger Sternbräu withdraws a little from everyday political life: scratches resigns from the ÖVP club in the municipal council of the state capital. When asked by “Krone”, the well-known restaurateur in the old town gave personal reasons. “There will still be talks, for example with the mayor. But the decision is clear,” says Kratzer. In the city ÖVP and in the municipal council club, things didn’t always go the way he imagined and how it could go. His functions in the city policy committees will soon be filled by the city ÖVP. He will remain as a free municipal councilor until the next election in 2024. Scratch is also chairman of the Economic Association of the City of Salzburg and holds positions in the Chamber of Commerce.
