At the age of 36, he began to conquer his party. Too stressed? Some in LR are not far from thinking of this slim opponent who “tends to think of all people over 40 as old”. The most dubious or evil people limit him to this youth, nicknaming him the “surf teacher”, referring to his runs along the Atlantic coast as often as possible. “I am not an enarque, so the enarques make fun, the relevant person notes. But the justice of the peace is an election. Last year, when many of them returned to their homeland, I was re-elected as a deputy with 65 percent of votes.

In the absence of ENA, Aurélien Pradié chose to practice law in Toulouse. The mayor of the Pink City, Jean-Luc Moudenc (ex-LR), remembers “this activist, a very nice guy and not too enthusiastic about his studies”. He didn’t finish them either. The deputy of the city council remembers with what “passion” and with what pride the very young mayor invited him to Lot to show a multidisciplinary health center a few years later. “He’s always focused on this appeal, the most humble, for all things social,” Toulousein said.

Because this son of a small nut merchant does not deny his origin or his scars. Surfing is also a way for him to return to family vacations and his “happy childhood.” They stopped when his father had a stroke when he was 16.

The domestic violence she’s taken on when we rarely talk about it in LR is a product of her experience as an elected official. A few days after taking his seat as mayor, a citizen came to ask for help. “My husband will kill me,” she said. “She was the mother of a childhood friend, I would never have suspected such a thing, and I promised myself that I would fight this,” says Deputy Lut.

Brigitte Riviere, who replaced Aurelien Pradié for nine years, “immediately seduced” by the ability to share the difficulties of his compatriots. “He has a real sincerity and intimacy with the Lotoi, who often call him by name,” says the sixty-year-old doctor, who marvels at his “intensity of work” and “thickness.” his young Member of Parliament between two legislative campaigns;

He tells everything, even if it means sending his interlocutor for a walk, including when it comes to Jean Castes, who tries to turn him into a macronism in the office at Matignon. He often tells this anecdote over meals, no doubt on purpose, so that he will never be tempted to cross over into the presidential camp. It is not in vain to treat LR activists with his right. Aurélien Pradié, an admirer of Chirac and Séguy, chooses the challenge by pushing social issues when his opponents surf more than immigration and insecurity. “I am also very determined on these questions, but if we still want to become a popular right, we have to talk about other wounds as well,” he says without concealing himself.
