Ney’s mayor is Edmund Busch.
Coat of arms
The German blazon reads: Schild geteilt, oben in Rot ein silberner Balken, unten in Silber zwei blaue Sterne, eine eingeschweifte blaue Spitze, belegt mit einem silbernen Stern (2:1).
The red field with the silver fess refers to the former Gallscheider Gericht (“Gallscheid Court”). The lower field shows the heraldic bearing of the Carmelites, who once had many holdings in the municipality. The tinctures azure and argent (blue and silver) symbolize purity.
