John Ehret is the first black mayor in Baden Würtemberg, probably the first mayor in Germany.
Every year on Christmas Eve John played at the nativity play at the chruch of Mauer.He always played one of the three kings.He played Casper.He played Casper so long until the priest gave him an another role.The priest gave him the role as a herder.Then at Christmas Eve he stood far in the back and had nothing to do, but it was for him the best moment of his career as an actor.
John Ehret was born in 1971 in Karlsruhe as the son of an afroamerican US-soldier.When you talk with him about that, he gets a little bit angry.He said that it would be good if everybody would justice him because of his skin tone.But John never had any experience with racism.As John was a baby, his parents, his parents gave him away to a home for children.When John was five he was adopted by the Ehret family from Mauer.His father was parish council and board in many associations.Soon John was allowed to raise the banner at pageants.At the beginning John was a sensation but soon he became a real ,,Mauermer Bub.´´
John made a carreer at the federal Criminal Police Office.John was criminal detective and educated policeman in Afghanistan.This carreer took also an unexpected change.This Friday the 40 year old John Ehret will return to Mauer. He will come back to the place of his youth for the first working day as a mayor.John Ehret is no party member but won the selection in the community with 4000 people with 58.1 %.
