J.-Jacques Michau: “His humanist heritage and his values”

“It is with deep sadness that I learned of the death of André Trigano, an emblematic figure of Mazères and Pamiers, and well beyond. As mayor, he left an indelible mark on our cities, shaping the local political landscape. His involvement in the regional elections led to the election of Martin Malvy as president of the Regional Council, illustrating his unfailing commitment to his region and its inhabitants. A respected business leader, André Trigano was much more than a successful entrepreneur: he was a deeply social man, concerned about the well-being of his employees. His humanist conscience guided him in all his actions, constantly reminding us of the importance of solidarity and respect for others. Coming from a Jewish family and a refugee during the war, André Trigano never forgot the precious help of the communist Ariégeois who hid him, thus marking his unwavering commitment against the extreme right and all forms of discrimination. With the disappearance of André Trigano, a voice committed to tolerance and respect for others has died out. Its humanist heritage and its values ​​will remain forever engraved in our memories, reminding us of the road ahead for a more just and united society. In this time of mourning, I send my most sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.”
