Departmental elections: in the canton of Chartres 2, the candidates of union of the left want to embody a new breath

Embody a “new breath”, after thirty years of right at the head of the Department. This is the ambition of Marion Boulay and Nicolas Lopez, the duo of the list “Together on the left for Eure-et-Loir” (PCF, PS, GRS) for the canton of Chartres 2.

“In the department, the extreme right is not very far. Not to mention the liberal policy led by the right which will do damage, ”warns Nicolas Lopez. This lawyer in public law hopes that the list of union of the left that he represents “will have elected officials to thwart the policy led by the right”. At 32, he decided to run for the first time in an election after having “read the notebooks of the great debate of 2019, this winter”, which allowed him to “discover the aspirations of the people”.

For Marion Boulay, 26-year-old parliamentary attaché, local politics is not quite a first, since she was a candidate on the list led by Jacqueline Marre in the last municipal elections in Chartres.

Youth and experience

If, in the canton of Chartres 2, the union list of the left is betting on youth, it also makes the choice of experience through the pair of substitutes. Dominique Padois, 69, has been a member of the Communist Party for 48 years and was “often a candidate for the PCF”, and elected municipal councilor during the first term of office of Jean-Pierre Gorges, in 2001, “but not on his list, on that of Pascal Ory ”, specifies this retiree, former bank employee.

In the last municipal elections, he too was a candidate on the “Chartres on the left” list. Like Véronique Gantès-Vogt, who forms the other part of the substitute pair. This 65-year-old instrumentalist, composer and music teacher staunchly defends “leftist cultural management” because, she explains, “the concept of culture and performing arts can only be realized in a leftist context.”

Among the priorities of the candidates of the union of the left, the social component. For Marion Boulay, “the youth has been abandoned for years by this Department”. In the proposals on their list, youth meetings “to bring out the priorities”.

For Nicolas Lopez, it is also about fighting on the front of medical desertification by “going to seek doctors, one by one if necessary” to “fill the nursing homes already built”. Among the priority areas, he also cites the medico-social, professional integration or child protection.
