EurActiv Awards 2009

Mr H.A.J. Aalderink

I should like to nominate the mayor of the small rural community ‘Bronkhorst’ for this Award.
By organising events, actively working with cross border contacts, setting up information bulletins for his community, bringing together people, Mr Aalderink contributes in a very pragmatic way to the Europe of citizens.
His objective is not to get European subsidies (as so many of his colleagues), but to make hsi community realize that they are part of Europe.

I warmly recommend that Mr Aalderink receives the award, it would be a stimulus for him and an example for all his colleagues.
