How should the former altstadtfest stay in the future?? The dispute has dominated public opinion for weeks now. In the editorial office, people are coming forward who insist that the name "mauerscheiber" should be used must never fall again. At the same time, the city is holding a vote that is being boycotted by the CSU, which wants to return to its old name.
This has called on wednesday the gastronomes on the plan. In an open letter to the "city representatives remind the seven landlords (losteria, arizona, stadtlockal, lubbis, zollhaus, parkcafe, elgringo) that the gastronomy financially bears the lowen share and "therefore also a say" expect. Host spokesman christoph kauer told the FT he could not understand the excitement: "the name mauerscheiber-fest was brought up by ulli raab during the conception of the tourism concept and was given rough approval there." In the open letter it says: "we see the current discussion, especially in the social media, quite critical and missing the actual point. We talk only about the name and not about the content and background of the product."
That so much of the "mauerscheiber" the speech is, surprises also city council paul nerb (FBF). "Not that forchheim had no other problems", he notes ironically and reminds of the town hall renovation or the "unclear purpose" of the kolpinghaus: "none of these objectively important projects has made such waves and provoked such bitter disputes as this attempt to name a festival."
