Frédéric Béatse's nomination for mayor office should open the electoral campaign

Just a few hours missed to give to the debate about relationships between journalists and politi-cians, planned by the Syndicat national des journalistes on October 9, the mood of an electoral face to face between Frédéric Béatse, current Angers mayor, and his right-wing challenger, Christophe Béchu, president of the Conseil général de Maine-et-Loire. Both men focused on the topic of the meeting and carefully avoided mutual critics. That should change after Mr. Béatse was officicialy choosen on October 10th by the Angers section of the Socialist Party, as candidate for mayor office.

That was not a big surprise given Jean-Luc Rotureau's candidacy to that function was openly criticized by the local socialist supporters. So Frédéric Béatse who remained, until now, in his mayor duties, should now have a wider margin of manoeuvre. He apparently didn't loose time given the Ecole supérieure des sciences commerciales d'Angers invited on October 11th its students for a discussion due to take place on October 15th with the mayor who "wishes to meet [Essca students] in order to know their needs, expectations and vision about a city like Angers".

On the other side, Christophe Béchu received the support of the Mouve-ment démo-crate (Mo-dem) which has several town coun-cillors but heard some questions from the Angers Loire Métropole delegate to Terra Botanica about the profitabilty of  that amusement and botanical park set up by the Conseil général. If that topic could be used against Mr Béchu, that one will surely answer to his rivals with the absence of industrial recovery of the Angers Technicolor site, one year after its closing.
