A transgender woman was elected mayor of the French town Tilloy-lez-Marchiennes on Saturday, becoming the country’s first known openly transgender mayor, French media reported, according to multiple outlets.

"What's surprising is that this is surprising," Marie Cau told Agence France-Presse, NBC News reported. "They didn’t vote for me or against me because I’m transgender; they voted for a program and for values."

Cau, 55, ran on a platform focused on environmental sustainability issues, in addition to building the local economy, the BBC reported. . . .

Félicitations, Madame le maire!  Je vous souhaite beaucoup de succès!
