Véronique Vermorel is a French Pirate running in a special election for the French National Assembly. She also lives in the Boston-area and is finishing up her internship for her business school. Her district includes the US, which is pretty cool when you think of it.
She is running on a platform of increased government transparency, better support for startups, authors and artists as well as sharing culture. We like her and think she is just what France needs. If you have any French friends who are living in the US or Canada, please suggest that they check out her website or find her on Twitter. The election is coming up soon, so please spread the word.
