Joachim Radics (ÖVP) has been mayor since the election on October 1, 2017. He is the successor to Johann Wallner (SPÖ), who has headed the community since 2002. The change had been preceded by internal quarrels at the SPÖ, as Wallner initially no longer wanted to run in 2017 and had been looking for a suitable successor for two years. Ultimately, in March 2017, he announced that, after consulting his wife, he wanted to continue. During a meeting of the SPÖ on May 27, 2017, which Wallner left prematurely due to "discouragement", his party colleagues decided to run for mayoral with Klaus Glavanics, a newcomer to the elections. Wallner described the appointment as "contrary to the statutes". In the direct mayor election on October 1, 2017, the SPÖ regained the majority in the local council, Glavanics lost 46.52% to Joachim Radics (50.30%), who had been deputy mayor since 2012 and on the local council since 2012. Stefan Szmolian (FPÖ) came to 3.18%.


  • Joseph Koller (* February 2, 1801 in Althodis; † July 7, 1827 with Strange executed in Pinkafeld ): In 1822, Koller joined the notorious Stradafüßler band of robbers under their leader Nikolaus Schmidhofer, known as Holzknechtseppl , and became a privy councilor or Naßl under the robber names or Kollerl to a local celebrity in what was then the border region of Styria, Lower Austria and Burgenland. He and his cronies fled on the night of May 30th to 31st, 1827 from a makeshift prison in Pinkafeld and shot the corporal of the guards. After Koller and his accomplices were caught again, he was sentenced to death by hanging by a military court in Güns as a deserter . In addition to the murder at the outbreak, he was charged with another murder of a Jew between Ödenburg and Klingenbach as well as four desertions, 8 thefts and 2 robberies with a total damage of 901 guilders. His execution took place on July 7, 1827, together with that of two other subordinates of the gang on the judicial hill in Pinkafeld.
