The announcement of the decision of Benoît Gheysens, mayor of Arveyres to no longer offer a substitute dish when pork is served in the canteen, provoked numerous reactions. And among those, one has been particularly virulent.Source: Sudouest.fr
"Some individuals entered my property during the night and damaged my vehicle. I became aware of it this morning around 8.30 am," explains Benoît Gheysens who filed a complaint in the police station. Two burst tyres and scratches on the bodywork that he considers "unacceptable": "They've encroached upon my private life. I don't see why I should continue with my commitment to public life in these conditions. I'll finish my mandate but I don't know if I'll stand again."
However, what he describes as "means of exerting pressure" will not cause him to revise his decision: "It's a question of economy, of justice and equality for the children. I hear the reactions of the parents and I am ready to receive them, to listen to them. But going from there to damaging my personal property ... That's going too far."
