Every politician in the EPP family represents a community, and your Member of the European Parliament, MEP, comes from your local community. They represent you in Europe because they know what your concerns are. You can be sure that they know how the life in your community is and they ’ve experienced many of the same things you’ve been through – whether it’s looking for a job, starting their own business, trying different career paths, relocating for work – just like so many Europeans these days. Talk to your MEP and to those who aim at becoming one. They’re there to help you. They’ve had ups and downs like you, they’ve come through difficult times just like you.
Here they share some of their surprising stories and backgrounds, in their personal and professional lives. The EPP is made up of political leaders who have been farmers, pilots, teachers, entrepreneurs, foodies, and translators, lawyers, assistants, shopkeepers and so on.

Get to know them better here and feel free to get in touch with them too.
