Early Life, education and career

Manfred Grund was born July 3, 1955 in Zeitz, East Germany (GDR). After earning his Abitur he worked as a turbine engineer at the State Coal Mine in Deuben before doing his military service from 1974 to 1975.

Political career

Without previous political affiliation Grund entered politics in the wake of the 1989 revolution in the GDR, in the course of which he acted as speaker of the Heiligenstadt people’s movement. In January 1990 he joint the Christian Democratic Union and assumed various positions with the CDU in the Eichsfeld county and the state of Thuringia.

From 1990 to 1994 Grund served as head of the Heiligenstadt district administration authority.

In 1994 Grund was first elected to the German Bundestag for Nordhausen – Worbis – Heiligenstadt in Thuringia, a seat he has held ever since (renamed as Eichsfeld – Nordhausen – Unstrut-Hainich-Kreis I in 2005).
