Alex Arnold Becomes the First Elected Pirate Mayor! | PirateTimes
The Swiss Pirate Party had a major victory Sunday, as 31-year-old Alex Arnold was elected mayor of Eichberg with 60% of the votes.
The region’s local Pirate Party is less than a year old, yet Arnold managed to win the election with 60% of the votes, 349 votes to 145. In office, he has vowed to focus on a policy of transparency. Much like many pirates, he chooses to place himself neither left nor right on the political spectrum.
