Jean Sarkozy, 21, will in fact run for local office in Neuilly-sur-Seine, the plush Paris suburb where his father served as mayor from 1983-2002. Jean is a law student, as well as the youngest son of French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Nicolas started his political career at age 22, as a local councilor. I guess young Jean wants to one-up his papa.
If victorious, Jean will represent the southern part of Neuilly on the council for the Hauts-de-Seine department. The department groups together the southwestern suburbs of Paris.
Yesterday, I received an invite from Jean, urging me to join his facebook campaign group. To see the "secret group" (no joke), grab your English-French dictionary, and read more.
