The mayor of every municipality in the Netherlands is appointed by the King and the Queen. My first thought when I heard of a new mayor was that I missed an important vote, but then this process was explained to me.
Thank you to the House of Orange-Nassau for picking Marja Van Bijsterveld (holding postcard), as she seems enthusiastic to be introduced to my work. A special gratitude to the team at Delft Voor Elkaar and MEE Zuid Delft (in photo – Yvonne Zuidgeest, RVE Manager) and especially Desiree Warning, for thinking of me for your first meeting with the mayor. Truly, this is looking very positive as far as getting started finally on some serious painting days in Delft. What a blessing!
