Our project for Kraainem

A civil engineer by training and coming from the private sector, I am a proponent of a “no-nonsense” approach: solution-oriented thinking across party boundaries, good knowledge of the issues, transparent communication without taboos, teamwork, constructive dialogue with the Regions and the neighboring communes, a broad citizen participation. I am at your service.

For Kraainem, I want

• Functional roads, pavements and cycle paths that are safe for users
• Less traffic and noise pollution
• A good quality of life for citizens
• More attention to heath and safety
• A preservation of the green character of the commune and the environment
• Harmonious coexistence of a very diverse and dynamic population
• Efficient services for all citizens
• A healthy financial situation for the commune
