Municipal Elections 2014 - Gorbio's Conseil Municipal

Every six years in France we vote in our local elections.  Here is our fabulous mayor Michel Isnard (centre) with his four 'adjoints' and the rest of the town council.

Before this photo was taken, there was a lot of paperwork to complete and then each member had to vote for his or her choice of mayor and after that, a second vote was held for the deputy mayor.   Each vote is placed in an envelope and then at the end, read out and counted.  This is open to the public and as you can imagine, there was a lot of applause at the end.

In the smaller photo you see the 2nd deputy, Mme. Arlette Pastor, the Mayor, Michel Isnard and the 1st deputy, Roland Larbre.


Tous les six ans en France, nous votons pour nos élections municipales. Voici notre fabuleux maire Michel Isnard (au centre) avec ses quatre « adjoints » et le reste du conseil municipal. 
Avant  de prendre cette photo, il y a eu beaucoup de documents à remplir, chaque élu a du voter pour choisir le maire et ensuite un second vote a eu lieu pour l'élection des adjoints au maire. Chaque bulletin  était placé dans une enveloppe puis les enveloppes étaient dépouillées. Le public était présent et comme vous pouvez l'imaginer, il y eut beaucoup d'applaudissements à la fin.


Dans la petite photo (gauche a droit) vous voyez la 2e adjointe, Mme Arlette Pastor, le maire, Michel Isnard et le 1er adjoint, Roland Larbre.


  1. An excellent group portrait. I see some go for a formal look... others, not so much.

  2. I agree with William - that is a really good group portrait. These are not easy. I know!

  3. William and Richard, thankyou. This is my first ever shot with a flash. A photographer friend in Nice advised me which external flash to buy and also advised me on the settings. Et voila! It worked. I'm really pleased. As you know I much prefer natural light photography but knew I had to have a flash for this.

  4. beaucoup de femme dans ce conseil
    une bonne chose

  5. Bergson, je crois c'est le nouveau loi en France? Non?
