Associated with the governance of Toulouse Métropole alongside Jean-Luc Moudenc and his majority, the socialist group, on the occasion of a financial inventory drawn up this fall, wants to put forward three priorities: environment, mobility and housing.
In this very special return to school, which sees a scorching summer succeed an energy crisis due to the war in Ukraine, the group of 26 elected socialists and relatives of the Metropolis (Solidarity, ecological and democratic metropolis, according to its exact name) wants to re-examine the political orientations of the metropolitan executive in which he participates alongside Jean-Luc Moudenc and his majority. As the mid-term is already approaching, Karine Traval-Michelet, mayor of Colomiers, 2nd vice-president of the Metropolis, and president of the group, and Patrice Rodrigues, mayor of Beauzelle, and vice-president of the group, held yesterday, for the first time, a press briefing.
In March, Karine Traval-Michelet was worried about the consequences of the rise in the price of energy and materials on the finances of the Metropolis and its ability to maintain the high rate of investment. Next week, the financial seminar she had requested should allow everything to be put on the table, that is to say also and above all the financing of the 3rd metro line. “We want to see it more clearly,” says Karine Traval-Michelet to find out “if we continue” or “if we redirect investments”.
But it does not alert itself on the receipts of the Metropolis. It is rather a political evolution that she thinks of based on three priorities: the environment, mobility and housing.
More than ever, it supports the 3rd metro line “which brings employment closer to housing”. On “the complementarity with the railway”, it invites on the other hand Jean-Luc Moudenc and Tisséo to commit in favor of the RER, not imposed the long-term project but at least the increase in the timing carried by Rallumons l’étoile. She also recognizes that on this subject, between the Region, the State, the SNCF, the Metropolis, Tisséo, “we do not know clearly who is addressing” while “everyone seems for”. The PS group also expects more voluntarism for the construction of social housing.
