Candidates still gathering their running mates to municipal elections

The leaders of the different lists competing for the Angers city council are building up. The current Angers mayor, Frédéric Béatse who, until recently, had no given details about the members of his team, was due to submit the names of his running mates to the Angers members of the Parti socialiste on January 8th. Besides Mr. Béatse, 25 others persons will submit their candidacies. About one half is constituted by current members of the city council majority, others appearing there for the first time. But those persons choosen by the Angers socialists will have to be gathered in a list garthering delegates of Europe-Ecologie-Les Verts and of the Parti communiste, two organizations allied of Frédéric Béatse.

On the left side, Jean-Luc Rotureau, fomer deputy-mayor, recently excluded from the Parti socialiste because he didn't join Mr. Béatse, continues to unveil week after week the names of his running mates. Twelve are already official and their companions will come until the end of the month, included those who will be deputy-mayors, promised Mr. Rotureau on his website.

The Angers right and centre leaders are not inactive. Laurent Gérault, centrist, reaffirming that he will slower the expenses and freeze the taxes, introduced two persons and, among them, his likely deputy-mayor in charge of finances. As for Christophe Béchu, who disclosed the main lines of his social policy directed to young people looking for a job, mothers having to entrust their children to nurseries, elders and disabled persons, he annouced that a current member of the city council minority will manage those issues. If Mr. Bechu doesn't plan to lower the resources dedicated in the social field, he plans to use them "differently". Mr. Rotureau would have not said otherwise.
