Performance index:
May 2010: 7.11 points out of 10

Thumbs up:
• Michael D W (Outside France): Mayor Delanoe's achievements are many. The Vellib, which has reduced the frightening traffic in Paris is one. Another is his buying up buildings in which virtually anyone can live in, not just the rich, who are forcing most of the poor out of Paris. I think there was a revolution fought about this once. Plus, as a gay man, it gives me hope that he will set a good example for all of the young gay men of France, and that they can strive for whatever goal they wish.
• Nospam (Paris): If we compare NY, London and Paris by their budget and what is done by the mayor, the performance of Paris's mayor is outstanding. For 6bn, he does better than London 16bn or NY 33bn.
• DR (Paris): Bus dedicated lanes(the buses aren't stuck in the traffic), also useable by Velib's bikes
- Velib: a huge network of thousands of bikes
• Angela Z (Paris): Despite budgetary difficulties Bertrand Delanoe has maintained funding for the local "maisons d'associations" which exist in every quarter of Paris (20 arrondisements).This means that many small, non profit and non party affiliated citizens groups have access to decent meeting rooms in a city where renting space is financially prohibitive. He has also kept up a lot of cultural funding for colloquiums and cultural events that are free i.e. unlinked to commercial promotions. Last year the city of Paris organized and helped finance the publication of an eye-opening colloquium dealing with the memory of the French Algerian war, a very sensitive subject in France. The all day public encounter included eye witness contributions from many "small and big" people directly involved or subsequently affected by the Algerian liberation struggle within France as well as in Algeria.

Thumbs down:
• Angela Z (Paris): Delanoe is manifestly beholden to a very dated constituency, incapable of gauging the economic or cultural appeal that mixed housing situations would generate within Paris intra-muros. The traditional bourgeoisie of Paris is conservative, boring and tight wadded. Mr. Delanoe would do many of us a big favor by regularizing immigrant papers and settling these workers within Paris's city run housing complexes. In no time would we the less affluent but smarter Parisians engage the skills of these men and women directly. All the"paperless" jobbers I have ever encountered have proven themselves to be more friendly and reliable than much of the small business riffraff we have to deal with via the internet or the yellow pages for fixing the many maintenance problems our old and crumbling buildings pose year in year out.
