Stavanger Municipality in Norway

Stavanger is a city and municipality in Norway. It is the third largest city and metropolitan area in Norway and the administrative centre of Rogaland county. The municipality is the fourth most populous in Norway. Located on the Stavanger Peninsula in Southwest Norway, Stavanger counts its official founding year as 1125, the year the Stavanger Cathedral was completed. Stavanger's core is to a large degree 18th- and 19th-century wooden houses that are protected and considered part of the city's cultural heritage. This has caused the town centre and inner city to retain a small-town character with an unusually high ratio of detached houses, and has contributed significantly to spreading the city's population growth to outlying parts of Greater Stavanger.

He was a member of Stavanger city council from 1896 to 1904, and of Stavanger school board from 1899 to 1904. He resigned in 1904 as he was appointed as burgomaster of Stavanger, the position which is now called chief administrative officer. While serving as burgomaster he was elected as a deputy representative of the Parliament of Norway from the constituency Holmen in 1906. He served one term, through 1909. He went on to become County Governor of Rogaland in 1910. [1]
