Ann-Sofie Hermansson who was mayor and became a sweeper

In 2016, she was elected mayor of Gothenburg Municipality. As mayor, she oversaw the launch of the Equal Gothenburg campaign, stating that “For many years we have had projects to fix inequality. We’d take some money, we’d have a project in the suburbs, and then the money ends and the project stops. The idea of Equal Gothenburg is no more small projects: we should think about equality all the time when we plan.”
