Did you know…..
….. that Erzsébet Pénzes is a mayor?
Yes, it is true. The senior lecturer of the Department of Tourism has been living in Hidegkút for 10 years now, and has been the mayor for a year. She has always been an active member of the community, organising events and working together on projects, and finally in 2010 the villagers themselves encouraged her to try and stand for election. After her successful campaign, she finds that she enjoys her new tasks, despite having much less free time. It gives her a lot of energy when she can see the result of her efforts. Of course the new position involves huge responsibility and big challenges. She has already learned many things and, she added with a smile, is on a good way to become a financial- and legal expert!
