In a sad turn of events, ex-Mayor Jean-Marc Lussert, widely recognized for his contributions during his mayorship in Prades-le-Lez from 2008 until 2020, has breathed his last. Lussert succumbed to a severe illness that he had been battling for an extended period. The renowned politician was 63 years old.

A Life Dedicated to Public Service

During his two highly successful terms as mayor, Lussert was instrumental in building a town that catered to the well-being of its citizens and prioritizing sustainable development projects. Acting as the vice-president of the Metropolis, a position he held from 2017 till 2020, he was assigned to deal with significant risk prevention strategies.

Jean-Marc Lussert’s Passion for Local Sport

Lussert was not only known for his political career but also significantly endorsed local sports. Creating a balance between his political duties and passion for sports, he managed the local football franchise and held the position of Chairman of the Prad’handball club back in 2002.

Remarkable Achievements as Mayor

Lussert’s mayorship witnessed considerable improvements in several areas including demographic growth, education, and food sustainability. Under his leadership, the town’s population swelled by 20%, leading to the establishment of six more classes to support the educational needs of the new inhabitants. In line with the global shift towards healthier diets, the school canteen began serving organic and locally sourced meals.

Progressive Urban Planning

Understanding the need for optimal land use, Lussert was an advocate for densification rather than expansion in urban planning. One of his groundbreaking initiatives was the introduction of a sports complex, complete with a climbing facility.
