We believe we're achieving our goal of helping Brno to become
a friendly and self-reliant city. We're happy that Brno is

You can easily vote for your favorite party by making one cross next

Let us introduce a couple of our candidates that have chosen Brno
as their place to live.
Anne Meredith Johnson
I think Brno is a beautiful and amazing city. I love
that there is history around every corner – from the tall cathedral
spires to the small stumbling stones. I also love how very
much the city is alive in the 21st century – modernizing public
transportation, making bike travel safer and easier, and opening its
doors to an increasingly global world. When I moved here
in 1994, my favorite food was fried cheese – and it's still
a treat to get a fried cheese in a bun while
waiting for the midnight bus. It's exciting to me that these
beloved things remain, and are joined by wonderful new
things. I think that the coalition of Žít Brno, Greens and
Pirates embodies that combination – true love for the city, honest
respect for the past, and a fearless focus on openness
to new possibilities.
I came to the coalition of Žít Brno, Greens and Pirates as
an independent candidate.
I am not a politician, I am a conscious european
citizen. And a filmmaker.
With my eyes, and my camera, I've been
watching, filming and knowing Brno for 26 years and I've seen
his epochal change, thanks also to foreigners. Here we
live, work, pay taxes, contribute to its being today so much
cosmopolitan. And this also means a greater culture,
innovation, professionalism to offer to the important
growth of this city.
Brno It is a city in favor of culture, individuals, families,
there is more space for children and their happy growth. Public
transport is phenomenal, health is excellent, studies with
a good level of school and many possibilities. Not just for
work but also for a better future to give
Beyond having an Italian czech family, Brno has become my
second city, and I feel very close to it and to feel
like a Moravian.
I'm here because I want to help foreigners in their
journey of acquisition and approach to this city, to be
ready to understand the duties to be addressed, then
to acquire their rights, in a peaceful exchange of new
ideas, new energy, for growthing happy, together, learning its
language, History, and tradition. To feel at home.
