Presidential: why Anne Hidalgo chose to come to Bourbriac – Bourbriac


Friday, February 18, Anne Hidalgo, the socialist candidate for the presidential election, will be traveling in Côtes-d’Armor. On the program, three visits and a common thread, employment and lifelong training. After Saint-Brieuc and Paimpol, she will go to Bourbriac. “Côtes-d’Armor is the diversity of territories. The maritime in Saint-Brieuc and rurality in Bourbriac. It is important to have a look at all the concerns. Thanks to her field work, she will convince, ”says Senator Annie Le Houérou, co-director of Anne Hidalgo’s campaign team in Côtes-d’Armor.

An interactive public meeting open to all

At 5 p.m., Anne Hidalgo will meet, in Bourbriac, the members of the U2P craftsmen’s association on the theme of apprenticeship and employment in rural areas. A meeting which will not be open to the public, unlike the public meeting, at 6:30 p.m., at the Salle des Forges. “This meeting will be interactive with the public. It will be possible to discuss with the candidate about her program”, specifies Annie Le Houérou.

Rare are the visits of political figures to Bourbriac, in the stronghold of former senator Yannick Botrel. The last time was in 1996. Lionel Jospin, then first secretary of the Socialist Party, took part in the Rose Festival, organized by the departmental federation of the PS, on the Forges site. He closed the day with a speech on the theme of the 60th anniversary of the Front Populaire. “It is always an honor to receive a political authority, especially on the eve of such an election. I hope there will be a lot of people to come and see it in the Salle des Forges,” says Claudine Guillou, mayor of Bourbriac.

“Bourbriac is well positioned and has a beautiful room”

So why this choice of Bourbriac, and not Callac or Rostrenen? “Bourbriac is central to Saint-Brieuc. Anne Hidalgo arrives and leaves by train, from Saint-Brieuc station. The town is well positioned and has a beautiful room. The question of going to Rostrenen arose but it required half an hour more travel (one hour round trip) compared to Bourbriac. She cannot spend her time in the car, ”explains the campaign co-director in the Côtes-d’Armor. “In the campaign, notes the Costa Rican parliamentarian, time is running out for us”.
