the Municipality’s outlandish defense of Erik Nielsen’s use of borgmesterbilen is obtained in correspondence with a private Rødovre-citizen.

Here acknowledges Erik Nielsen’s chief of staff, Michael Trøjborg Thomsen, that the car is a common tjenestebil, ‘as the municipality’s other approx. 115 service cars’. It is not, therefore, purchased free for private purposes.

When the citizen wonder about the mayor’s interior design of a car park close up at home is the answer:

‘As previously stated, then put the question tjenestebil in the municipal area at the nursing home Engskrænten, where there is set up a ladestander. Thus, there is not talk about the drive between home and work,’ writes Michael Trøjborg Thomsen in an email from this autumn.

the chief of staff teaches also the citizen of that ladestanderen shame was erected, because the charging points at the town hall now being used by the municipality’s other employees.

the Rødovre Municipality is located in the state fattigliste of the municipalities, who need extra money. Thus, the municipality has received 20 million dollars in the ekstrabevilling to avoid the worst cuts.

Extra Magazine asked Tuesday morning on the parking lot of Erik Nielsen’s house, why he has bought a Mercedes with a private parking space and ladestander for taxpayers ‘ money.

– I do not have any private tjenestebil, says Erik Nielsen.

however, He did not disclose who else is running in the car.

See the Auxiliary Magazine’s meeting with the mayor here at at. 20.00 in the evening.

The clever feint that Rødovre Municipality defends in rought terms for the common people to break the rules.

Erik Nielsen is running as always, even his Mercedes. And it does not go.

the official cars for mayors shall be used only for driving to and from work, if there is a driver that drives the car. In this way can the mayor take care of his work while driving.

It illuminates the Social and the ministry of the Interior to Ekstra Bladet, after the officials have been exploring the rules.

In a written answer explains the ministry:

‘It is also the ministry’s view that the drive to and from your own residence, when it takes place in the car without the driver, will not normally qualify as a professional driving. It is due to the mayor, when this even leads the car, for the most part will not be available for its work and its employees while driving, and that the car therefore in these cases can not serve as a rolling office.’
