Alter Ego

Passwang / Vogelberg of the Jura mountains is one of Andreas Martin’s «places of power»

It is my concern to put my capabilities and talents in the service of the community. Moreover, I firmly believe that we have to enjoy our lives because it is most probably the only one we have. I try to serve our society by engaging oneself in sports, previously in youth work and in politics.

For over 20 years, I am the judo head coach at the Sports Club Shin Do Kan located in Reinach BL. In the SC Shin Do Kan, I regularly give judo lessons for kids and youths between the ages of 6 and 18 years, as well as adult classes. Besides, I am vice-president and a long-time board member of the Sports Club Shin Do Kan.

Between 2007 and 2023, I was serving the community of the district Dorneckberg as director and head of a youth centre called Jugendhaus Dorneckberg JUHU.

Between 2005 and 2009, I was a municipal council at the municipality of Gempen where I was the head of the education department.

During the Swiss civilian service, I served in social institutions and supporting people with mental disabilities.
