It is the surprise of this election: Jean-Claude Breton and Julia Trentin will face Élisabeth Fromont and Franck Masselus, deputies to the mayor of Chartres and outgoing departmental advisers in the canton of Chartres 2.
The pair, which is running for the first time in departmental elections and declares itself independent of the logic of the apparatus, has partly focused its campaign on opposition to the 7.5% inter-municipal property tax voted by the Chartres agglomeration community Metropolis. Jean-Claude Breton, mayor of Berchères-les-Pierres, voted against just like his replacement, Nicolas Vanneau, mayor of Prunay-le-Gillon.
“And yet the inhabitants have not seen the concrete impact of this tax, underlines Jean-Claude Breton. If the election had taken place in October, it would have been a game-changer. Despite everything, the message we wanted to convey received a certain echo. “

Twenty point difference
In the peri-urban communes of Chartres, such as Dammarie, Gellainville, Morancez or Sours, the pair received fewer votes than the RN. The low turnout gave him qualification for the second round even if Jean-Claude Breton regrets it: “It’s not good for democracy. “

Élisabeth Fromont also said that she was “disappointed with the lack of mobilization of voters in the city of Chartres”. This is where the gap is most marked with his opponents in the second round, who collect only 7.16% of the vote against 47.78% in his favor.
If the leavers prance in the lead with more than twenty points difference, nothing is yet decided. But Jean-Claude Breton announces it: “I am not just here to do the figuration. “
