Nominations for
Martine Aubry
Mayor of Lille (France)

Nominated by A.R., Lille:
Martine Aubry incarne la fonction de Maire comme personne en France. A la fois visionnaire quant au devenir de sa ville, elle est également ouverte aux initiatives et à l'action des Lilloises et des Lillois.

Alors que depuis 2001 elle s'efforce de faire de sa ville une ville jeune, dynamique et solidaire, il est possible d'affirmer que le succès est total, comme le montrait le sondage réalisé par le journal local, la Voix du Nord, fin 2017.

Parallèlement, Martine Aubry considère l'échelion municipal comme l'échelon principal de la prise de pouvoir par les citoyens. C'est pour cette raison que Lille est une des premières villes de France à mettre en place un budget participatif d'investissement.

Maire aux convictions fortes et affirmées, Martine Aubry fut la première Maire d'une grande ville française à accueillir à bras ouverts des réfugiés, dès le début de la crise migratoire, en 2015, alors même que l'opinion publique française n'y était pas favorable.

Enfin, femme de responsabilité, Martine Aubry insiste sur l'importance de la gestion financière. Ainsi, la capacité de désendettement de la ville de Lille n'est que de 6 ans, quand la moyenne est de 9 ans pour les villes similaires.

Challenges for Lille: Face aux problèmes d'insécurité qui ont pu frapper la ville de Lille, Martine Aubry a joué de tout son poids national pour obtenir la nouvelle police de sécurité du quotidien auprès du Ministre de l'Intérieur Français.

En 2015, alors que l'opinion publique s'inquiète de la vague migratoire en cours, que la xénophobie progresse en Europe, et que la fraternité se fait rare, Martine Aubry, Maire de Lille, est la première a proposé d'accueillir des réfugiés à Lille. Pourquoi ? Car la solidarité est l'une des valeurs cardinales de l'Europe, et qu'elle ne peut pas être mise de côté.

Martine Aubry embodies the function of Mayor as nobody in France. At the same time visionary about the future of her city, she is also open to the initiatives and action by the men and women of Lille.

While since 2001 she strives to make her city a young, dynamic and supportive city, it is possible to say that the success is total, as shown by the poll conducted by the local newspaper, La Voix du Nord, close 2017.

At the same time, Martine Aubry considers the municipal echelion as the main echelon of citizens taking power. It is for this reason that Lille is one of the first cities in France to set up a participative investment budget.

Mayor with strong and assertive beliefs, Martine Aubry was the first Mayor of a large French city to welcome refugees with open arms, from the beginning of the migration crisis, in 2015, even though French public opinion was not not favorable.

Finally, a woman of responsibility, Martine Aubry stresses the importance of financial management. Thus, the deleveraging capacity of the city of Lille is only 6 years, when the average is 9 years for similar cities.

Challenges for Lille: Faced with insecurity problems that may have hit the city of Lille, Martine Aubry played her full national weight to get the new security policy of the daily newspaper with the French Minister of the Interior.

The will of Martine Aubry has always been the social mix. And in Lille, she succeeded. Another bias of the Mayor, to make education and culture a way to escape his condition and she has also succeeded.
