After having worked in the food industry, he began his political career as a village councilman in 1974. Since 1982, he is the mayor of Bapaume, a small town in northern France (except between 2002 and 2004).

Between 1992 and 2002, he was president of the French mayors association and a Senator of the Pas-de-Calais département,[1] before being promoted to Minister of the Civil Service. After two years in the French government, he is appointed as the Mediator of the French Republic (Médiateur de la République), his term of office ending in 2010.
