« Samuel Lafont is a 26-year-old community manager from Nîmes in the south of France and has lived in Paris for five years. As part of the association Contribuables Associés, he wants the government to reduce excessive public spending. “What bothers me is the way this has been handled,” he starts. “From the posters to the slick website, they spent an enormous amount of money on publicity – taxpayers’ money.
“Hidalgo has told Parisians: ‘Here’s a gift of €20m, you choose what to do with it’ but … it was ours to begin with,” he exclaims. “Those funds should stay in Parisians’ pockets!
“Are all of these projects really important to Parisians? Some of them are downright ridiculous, nothing but Anne Hidalgo’s pet projects that fail to address real problems.” »
