Here are the names known to date of the heads of the Marais lists for the municipal elections of March 15 and 22.

Let us first note that for the inhabitants of the Marais, things are changing. Voters will no longer vote to determine their district mayor: one for the 3rd, another for the 4th.

From 2020, a new division brings together the first four arrondissements into a single constituency, Paris-Centre, with a single mayor. It will send eight municipal councilors to the Council of Paris (for comparison, the 12th sends ten and the 15th, eighteen).

The headers of the lists are as follows:

Ariel Weil (Anne Hidalgo list, Paris en Commun).
District councilor of the 4th since 2014, mayor of this same district since 2017, Ariel Weil, 45, is an economist, specialist in financial crises and debt. He was born in the Marais, where he lives and raises his children.

Pacôme Rupin (Benjamin Griveaux list, LREM).
District councilor of the 4th since 2014, Pacôme Rupin, 34, left the PS to join LREM when it was created in 2016. He was elected deputy En Marche! in 2017 in the 7th district (4th and part 11th district).

Anne Lebreton (Villani list).
An independent candidate in 2014, she then obtained 5,8% before joining the PS candidate in the 4th district (where she had created a parents' association and raised her four children). A district of which she became deputy mayor in charge of solidarity and the elderly. Her father is Breton and her mother is American.

Benjamin Djiane (Gaspard Gantzer list).
Former “pen” of Manuel Valls at the Ministry of the Interior then at Matignon, Benjamin Djiane was deputy for security and cleanliness to the mayor (PS) of the 3rd arrondissement Pierre Aidenbaum.

Raphaëlle Rémy-Leleu (David Belliard list, EELV).
Former spokesperson for the Dare to Feminism association, the 27-year-old green candidate has campaigned in student organizations and associations helping undocumented immigrants. A civil service contract worker, she is currently unemployed. She has lived in Paris for ten years.

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors. Although it has become democratized, now affecting all profiles and concerning one in five French people, including 16% women compared to 10% men, it still remains taboo due to its definitive and transgressive nature.
