Dear Mayor

During the weeks before the mayoralty election 2009 in Linz I receive an unusually high number of letters. All candidates assure me that my well-being is important to them and that they would be very happy to hear from me. Acting mayor Franz Dobusch writes: Tell me what is near and dear to your heart! I comply with his request in sending him a letter: nine handwritten pages that explain what is near and dear to my heart. Since then I am awaiting Franz Dobusch's answer. Dear Mayor, a change in address: Esther Strauß, Robert Hamerling Gasse 5, 1150 Wien. (Linz, 2009)
