Monday May 18, François Baroin, mayor of Troyes and president of the Association of Mayors of France, was the guest of Europe 1.
On health, François Baroin believes that lessons must be learned from this crisis. You have to analyze what worked and what didn’t. In this case, this crisis has highlighted the mayors and local elected representatives and the essential need to give them more skills. We must put local elected officials inside this governance and give more power to the territories. If they want to invest in hospitals, equipment, they must be able to do so.
On the economic side, he asked that a social and territorial conference be held quickly to agree on the measures in terms of support for deferred consumption, decide on the non-increase in taxation and define elements investment strategies.
