Last Saturday in Valencia, the Podemos
political party presented its candidates for the
forthcoming municipal elections and announced that Bernhard
Feiner was the elected nomination for mayor of Xàbia.
Feiner, who was born and raised in Bavaria in Germany
before moving to Spain in 1990, attracted 100% of the
vote from his party.
Feiner moved to Valencia in 1990 and arrived in Xàbia
in 1995. He has worked at secondary schools in Benissa
and Xàbia before moving to the Escuela Oficial
de Idiomas in Xàbia in 2004. He currently
holds the position of Head of Studies at EOI Dénia.
He is married with two daughters.
an activist in Germany, participating in the anti-nuclear
struggle for which he was once arrested. After moving
to Spain, he became more and more frustrated by
the years of corruption and apparent punishment of the
middle and lower classes and by the fact that the demonstrations
in which he participated didn't bear any fruit. He saw
the emergence of PODEMOS in the political picture as
a new start, providing a new hope to making changes.
2016 Feiner attended a meeting of Podemos Xàbia
with his wife and found a group of friendly people full
of good positive ideas with the enthusiasm to make them
a reality. They became active members of the Xàbia
branch and he sees the forthcoming municipal elections
as a great opportunity to make things better in the
town. He sees it as necessary to maintain the heritage
of Xàbia and its radiant beauty and to protect
it from urban development whilst also providing affordable
housing for everyone, an efficient public transport
system and encouraging stable employment. He says that
he wants to achieve all of this through hard work because,
as the Podemos slogan says, ¡SÍ SE PUEDE!
- IT CAN BE!
