Adam

Some people are inexplicably inhabited by a strong vocation from a very young age. Adam is one of them. The ladies in the canteen will tell you: when he was only 5 years old, this little boy who was not like the others already wanted to become mayor. Until he had the necessary experience to run for this position, the teenager trained as a class representative. And as soon as he came of age, he became a municipal councillor, the youngest in the commune of course!

When you spend a little time with him, you soon realise that all this has nothing to do with any personal ambition. The young man in his thirties is literally passionate about his town, its heritage and its inhabitants. He is relentless, as much about the great history and all the moments of commemoration that seem indispensable to him, as about the small stories of each and every one. When he meets a citizen, he doesn't just shake a hand and give a smile: he listens with undisguised attention and retains each of the confidences that are made to him.

Having criss-crossed the town since school, then working to preserve it since he was elected, he knows every little bell tower and alley. His friends know this well and already call him "Mr. Mayor" with a laugh. But for him it's all very serious: don't try to ask him if he's imagined what would happen if he never became mayor: the very idea is out of the question, it will happen, whatever happens! In the meantime, he works tenaciously for the common good. So we can only wish this young mayor one thing: that his dream will come true one day…
