Mayor’s ties sold off for charity

Hans-Georg Brum, who left office on Thursday, not only cleared out his desk but also his wardrobe this week, selling off his collection of ties from the past 18 years at the flea market in the Adenauerallee.

Proceeds will be donated to the new “communication centre” in the Strackgasse, where a number of charities will be based in future.
