“I cannot bring myself to see my constituency delivered to the extremes”

“After him, there was Paulette Guinchard, Jacques Grosperrin, Eric Alauzet: just people who held their own. These deputies helped our communities. Our schools. I cannot bring myself to see my constituency delivered to the extremes,” affirms the candidate who capitalizes on his local roots to convince. ” I was born here. I work here. If I go there, it’s only for the residents and to defend the mayors,” he assures, in comparison to Dominique Voynet, “elected in Montreuil and in the Jura,” and who, according to him, defends above all “a party” and not the local population. Just like the RN. “We want open people from the circle, who fight for the residents, not people who defend Bardella! “, says the candidate, who, if elected, would have to let go of the reins of Saône town hall. “My mandate ends and all projects are launched. I am not abandoning my community. I remain a Saônois,” he says.
