About me

This post is also available in: deDeutsch

Timo HörskeI am originally from Premnitz in Havelland. I saw the light of day for the first time in the neighbouring Rathenow on 13.12.1985.

I stayed there until the end of my school years. At the scientifically influenced grammar school “Alexander-von-Humboldt” I acquired my general university entrance qualification in mathematics, politics, chemistry and German.

In my old home country I gained my first experience in local politics, among other things in a steering committee for urban development, in the election of a new city coat of arms and in the framework of student participation committees.

Living in Bremerhaven

For my first studies I was drawn to the state of Bremen. The choice between Bremerhaven and Bremen was easy for me. Bremerhaven is my adopted country. Close to the sea, full of life and with an interesting development.

Since 2005 I have been living in Bremerhaven and have witnessed the further development of the city through the Havenwelten and the revival of the old citizens. In numerous activities for the Klimahaus Bremerhaven and the Alfred-Wegner-Institut für Polar- und Meeresforschung I got to know Bremerhaven intensively from a touristic, economic and cultural point of view.

I was engaged for my district in the context of the communal program Living in Neighbourhoods (WiN) and was there several times speaker of the district committee.


I am currently studying for a Bachelor of Law (LL.B), also known as a commercial lawyer. In this course, my main focus is on the economic view of households and their legal dimensions. This has also helped me in my work as an employee of our member of the Bundestag for Bremerhaven, Uwe Schmidt. Previously I was employed by the Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Minister of Economics and Energy Uwe Beckmeyer, MdB a.D..

In addition, I worked as a supervisor in the field of technology and payroll accounting at the Strohhalm youth welfare institution.

Until March 2019 I supported the Office for Municipal Labour Market Policy as coordinator in the implementation of the municipal support programme “Living in Neighbourhoods”.

If I then still find time, I am as an independent technical advisor in the range EDP, telecommunications and Social Media with medium-size enterprises in Bremerhaven on the way. To my company it goes here long:

I have been a member of the SPD in Bremerhaven since 2006 and hold numerous honorary posts and tasks here.

The highlight so far was winning the Wilhelm Dröscher Award 2013 for our project “Roter Stadtrundgang” (see also Roter-Stadtrundgang.de or Wilhelm-Dröscher-Preis).

I represent the SPD faction of the Bremerhaven City Council as an elected citizen in the city’s youth welfare committee.

Interests and Passions

Besides politics and this blog, my great passion is allotment gardening. On two parcels I maintain with my better Häflte together almost 800 square meters of surface. There they experiment a lot, grow fruit and vegetables, play with our Cocker Spaniel Mix Wilson and enjoy a lot of free time.

Since March 2019, I have been able to manage the fate of the Kleingärtnerverein Bremerhaven-Lehe e.V. together with a committed team as the 1st chairman.
