At Le Mans, Stéphane Le Foll goes green to be reborn
All communications were cut off and computers stranded.In the former Palace of the Counts of Maine, where Henri II was born, floats like an air of bewilderment amused among the mayor's collaborators.Stéphane Le Foll inquires about this that it is happening, and accelerates the pace towards his office.In front of the large window which dominates the Place des Quinconces, he pretends to be absorbed on the prospect, then turns around: "We must modernize this city to attract people, give to dream ”, he launches in his deep voice.Here is the former deputy of Sarthe, who became mayor of Le Mans and president of the metropolis, changed into a councilor carrying local projects, barely six months after his return.
If the gray suit still falls as badly on its carcass of one meter ninety-three, the former Minister of Agriculture seems to take pleasure in brewing up development projects.who wants to be new, has become his daily life.

"New green deal"
