“It is simple to criticize…”

“We’re for motion, motion, voluntarism. It’s simple to criticize, however to maneuver ahead, you want boldness and braveness. Within the service of the metropolis. It typically grows too quick, however catches up with its delay.” The mayor referred, specifically, to safety and public transport. Persevering with: “I choose that we be on the heart of the selection debate as a result of we’re conscious of the stakes. There’s a course, we assume it. The work is tough, I do know it.

Particularly, on one of many recurring themes of his speech: vitality. Extra prices because of the present financial state of affairs are estimated at 12.5 million euros through the 12 months.

Vitality: extra prices of 12.5 million euros per 12 months.

So vitality? Public service, he mentioned. Arguing, partially: “We is not going to shut the swimming pools. Our swimming pools are bodily schooling academics who educate our kids to swim, it’s older individuals who go in for sports activities. If we have now to decrease the temperature by one diploma, we are going to decrease the temperature by one diploma.

We needed to activate the ears of some households, however every little thing went effectively.” I announce: “On the finish of December, we are going to start to scrub the bungalow.”
A sure complacency on the a part of the mayor of Montpellier that permits him to maintain his course. As on subject, sharp, visitors. Eager to settle down first.

Site visitors: “We have made an enormous change”

After the Comédie tunnel, the closure of Dubout and Clemenceau… “We have made an enormous change. Habits might be taken. I requested our crew to work on enhancing the charges. Nothing. However to do nothing is to sentence us. It is to not see the summer time we lived by way of. Assured: “This summer time, Jean Jouzel, creator of the IPCC report, complimented me within the ear. I say: we should decarbonize mobility, we’re going there.

So the mayor is satisfied to remain the course and needs to be persuasive. Was this his third comeback? He has a lot left.
