"I think that politicians should be more human, more authentic, instead of putting on a persona or a certain appearance because that’s what is expected from them. I’d like to think that the biggest difference I have made as Vice Mayor is to be authentic, to show to people that politicians are exactly the same as any other citizens. I know the political climate tells otherwise, specially if you look at global politics. But it is necessary to change this and you can only start by being authentic yourself. I think that’s my biggest accomplishment as Vice Mayor. When I meet people in the city I don’t meet them as Vice Mayor, I meet them as Anne. I’m really proud of that.
