Florence Sagenet, born Cazeur on July 25th, 1962 in Saint-Martin d'Auxigny, is a voiseyian politician. She was Minister of Economy from 2010 to 2015 under Léon Fruget. She was appointed Minister of the Interior by Daniel Marangé in 2020.

Early Life, Education, and Family

Florence Sagenet was born on July 25, 1962 in Saint-Martin-d'Auxigny in the Cher, of two Voiseyian parents from the Cher. Florence had a difficult childhood because of the war. In July 1974, the town of Vierzon (a large town near Saint-Martin d'Auxigny) was captured by the Buriname troops. The Voiseyian troops retreated and soon arrived in the village of Florence and her family. A few days later, columns of hundreds of civilians crossed the small village and headed towards the Nièvre (neighbouring department), to escape the invaders. Because of all the terrible rumours that are circulating about the Buriname army, the Cazeur family decides to join this exodus. At the end of July 1974, arriving in Sancerre (city in the Cher just at the border with the Nièvre), the convoy is attacked by Burinamean bombers called "the birds of hell" (these planes made a shrill noise when they were based on their victims). The bridge that the family was about to cross exploded and several dozen people were killed. Florence and her family were blocked and the invaders were only a few dozen kilometers away. The nearest suitable bridge was 2 km away and the road was saturated. They took almost a week to pass in the department of Nièvre. They managed to reach the town of Donzy in another week, then Varzy and finally Clamecy just 50 km from the front. They are recoiled by a unknown family in Avallon (Yonne). But the city is in turn captured. Begins a long period of occupation, which will prove difficult for the young Florence. For two years, Florence will attend deportations and summative executions. At the end of the war, she and her family returned to Saint-Martin d'Auxigny. The village has suffered light bomabrdement and the house of the Cazeur is intact. With the war out of the way, Florence was educated by her parents. In 1985, when the universities were all reopened, Florence applied to the law school in Bourges, where she was accepted. She graduated fourth in her class in 1988. But she finally realized that what really interested her was finance. She joined a business school in Nevers and then a financial management school (budget) in Vierzon. She finished her studies in 1996 and, drawing on her experience, joined the office of the Minister of Economy in 1998. Florence is known for her perseverance and the quality of her work. She rose through the ranks to herself advise the minister of economy (2008). She was not affiliated with any party.

Political Career

The political career of Florence Sagenet began late, when she was appointed Minister of Economy by Léon Fruget in 2010. She had joined the UGC party in the same year. During her term, she continued to grow Voiseyian industry and agriculture. She finished her term in 2015 but was not promoted to any high position under the government of Alain Delambrie. In 2016, she joined the cabinet of the Minister of the Interior, in the law and penitentiary branch. She regularly takes part in interviews and defends the death penalty, which is increasingly challenged. In 2020, Daniel Marangé, newly elected, integrated her in his government as Minister of the Interior. She has since continued to defend the death penalty and, in 2021, submitted a bill to reduce the construction of new prisons in rural areas, but to "rehabilitate prison centres that are too old and obsolete".
