Mayor of the Municipality of Helliniko – Argyroupoli
I am very pleased I was elected to preside over SPAY.
This election is the capstone of an effort made for the past five years in cooperation with SPAY to protect, enhance and develop Mt. Hymettus, so that it is enjoyed by all citizens, since it is a mountain of unique and historic value.
I have an appetite for hard work and together with my colleagues and employees of SPAY, we will fully restructure the Union.
We will find all that will constitute Mt. Hymettus a paradigm of destinations and of environmental protection so that thousands of people can enjoy its high standards of safety and more importantly, quality.
