Arno Jesse

In Saxony - as in a number of other German states - the mayor elected directly by the citizens of the town has two tasks: he is "chairman of the parish council and head of the parish administration", as specified in § 51 of the Sächsische Gemeindeordnung, the Saxon municipalities ordinance. He represents the parish outwardly and, together with the town council, is one of the two organs of the town.

Since 1 August 2013 Arno Jesse (SPD) has been the mayor of Brandis. He was elected in the first round, with 64.24 % of the vote. His period of office is 7 years.
