"Incidental" remarks after Angers city council

An incident has closed on March 25th the debate of the Angers town council. After it was denied to talk about the new trouble between the town store owners and town hall, the minority group choose to slam the door of the room. If the opposition has the absolute right to express its disagreement, the issue having led to that incident is maybe a little disproportionate with what was at stake. Others issues could validly lead the opposition members to leave the session. And the least is not some expenses coming under the chapter "solidarity and well living together".

Theses expenses, a new swimming pool called Aqua Vita (€ 30 millions) or the new "Estate of solidarity", are considered by many inhabitants as untimely giving the worrying economic datas in Angers. The last figures of unemployment notice a continuous increase of jobless. If the supplementay allocation granted to the Centre communal d'action sociale will surely help low income families to overcome difficulties, it also indicate that Angers is becoming impoverished.

It is not sure, the minority group would have done differently. But, regarding the animation of Angers down town, it has not, till now, offered new ideas to make the core of the town more living. One must believe that, a day or another, the new homes built all over Angers as well as the offices of Gare+ will find occupants. Because, what Angers need is inhabitants and jobs.
