It is now time to elect Amsterdam’s new Night Mayor for the coming two years! The Night Mayor is a truly unique political and entertainment position. The first of its kind in Europe, the Mayor is an interlocutor between consumers and providers of night life entertainment, as well as Amsterdam’s creative industry, the Mayor of Amsterdam, and the city council. His wide communication web allows the Night Mayor to act as a kind of ambassador for Amsterdam. He is a point of contact for a wide range of actors, from municipalities, media, to research institutions, from and beyond The Netherlands.
This year, three candidates will be competing for the position of Amsterdam’s Night Mayor: Mirik Milan, Kolja Verhage, and Ronald Offerman. I had a chance to speak to them about their goals and plans. Get to know your candidates in my interview, exclusive for AmsterDO!
