The mayor Les Républicains de Cannes, David Lisnard was elected Wednesday at the head of the influential Association of Mayors of France (AMF). Dubbed by the outgoing president of the AMF François Baroin, of the same party, the current vice-president of the association, 52 years old, claims to be an heir of the former RPR mayor of Lons-le-Saunier Jacques Pélissard, who chaired the association from 2004 to 2014 and with whom he cut his teeth as chief of staff between 1996 and 1999.
During his campaign, the elected representative of Cannes received the most virulent criticisms from his own camp, like Renaud Muselier, the president of his region who accused him “of being nestled in his Palais des Festivals ”and not understanding the daily problems of mayors.
Reelected in 2020 with 88% of the votes, David Lisnard has been running Cannes since 2014, after having been its first deputy (2008-2014) and tourism deputy (2001-2008) in the team of Senator LR and former advertising man Bernard Brochand.
Born on February 2, 1969, Chiraquien forever, David Lisnard joined the RPR at 25 and supported François Fillon in 2017. Remarried to a journalist from France 3 Côte d’Azur, the city councilor is the father of three children.
