Municipal Elections in Saint-Paul-de-Vence

Jean Paul Faure would like to present his  « tomorrow in Saint Paul » team.

I have met with over 300 persons from St Paul since the beginning of our adventure. I am very receptive to the feedback that I have heard and the love that we all share for Saint Paul as well as the issues that I have heard regarding the current administration and the need for change.

I am also concerned as you all have expressed, the plan for 80 new homes in the Malvan, the loss of the children’s playground on La Courtine, and the difficult access to the Remparts (especially for parents with strollers and handicapped individuals), and I refuse to see our taxes increase while investment in infrastructure decreases substantially.

I would like to establish a system whereby communication between you and the local administration is open and accessible in order to respond to your issues.

Major decisions regarding the future of Saint Paul should include all of us, not just a clique as is the current situation.

I love Saint-Paul and am available to discuss any issues you have, and I am proposing a program that has ambition and coherence to make for a better future for Saint Paul.

One man alone can’t do it all. I  am proud to present to you the team that will be part of this adventure. This team truly represents Saint-Paul in terms of ages, experience and competencies. Our team is composed of native Saint- Paulois living here for several generations with a strong link to social support associations, as well as experienced young people with international talent and experience. This mix will allow us to build an ambitious future for the village while retaining its traditions and history. 

We have been working since the beginning of 2019 to create a program that is ambitious yet realistic and will have this plan published by early 2020. The program will be focused on 12 items that are currently being  developed with experts for the various issues being explored.

You can contact any member of our team should you have any questions or comments. We want to be able to work together for a better future for Saint-Paul.
