Alois Lang (politician, 1940)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alois Lang (born July 1, 1940 in Leinzell ; † December 6, 1994 ) was a German local politician and Lord Mayor of Ditzingen from 1975 to 1980 .


Lang graduated from the administrative college in Stuttgart . In 1965, at the age of 25, he was elected mayor of the municipality of Edelfingen and was confirmed in office for a further twelve years in 1973 with 99.7 percent of the vote. From 1967 to 1972 he was chairman of the Mergentheim mayors' association. He belonged to the district council of the Mergentheim district and was chairman of the SPD parliamentary group. In the state elections of 1972 he ran for the SPD in the constituency of Öhringen , but was defeated as a direct candidate by Albert Reuter (CDU).

When the community of Edelfingen was incorporated into Bad Mergentheim , his term of office as mayor ended there. He worked briefly at the Wüstenrot Bausparkasse in Ludwigsburg and ran for the office of Lord Mayor in Ditzingen in the summer of 1975 with the support of the SPD. When choosing on June 8, 1975, he sat down with 51.43 percent of the vote narrowly to the CDU candidate and former mayor of Hirschlanden , Alfred Fögen by which reached 47.80 percent. On August 1, 1975, Lang took office. During his tenure, the rapid development of the Ditzingen business location, which had already begun under his predecessor Hans Scholder , continued. In 1976 Ditzingen was elevated to a major district town.

In October 1979 Alois Lang was elected to the district council of the Ludwigsburg district for the SPD . In March 1980 he announced his resignation from the SPD and switched to the CDU, a step he justified with federal and state political issues. In connection with the sale and development of an urban plot of land on Ditzinger Bauernstrasse as well as with the unauthorized award of development services for a building area that had not yet been decided upon, the local council and the public were sharply critical. On September 30, 1980, Lang resigned from office at his request and his pension entitlements from his time in Ditzingen ceased to exist. He initially retained his district council mandate after the party change and his dismissal as mayor, before he left the district council at his own request at the end of August 1981.
