Just got home not too long ago from this month's Town Hall meeting at PJS 7, Bandar Sunway. We had a "full house" crowd. The Jawatankuasa Penduduk Zone 2 ("JKP") members were also present at the meeting. MPSJ councillor for PJS 7, Ken Chia together with the JKP members also assisted in answering some of the questions raised by the residents there. Representative from Alam Flora was also present. The Bandar Sunway Residents' Association also attended the meeting and provided their feedback.
The residents of PJS 7
My office organises Town Hall meeting every month to ensure my constituents have an opportunity to meet their state assemblyman and for residents to come out together and exchange views on the issues surrounding this area. I do this because I do not want to hear this said about us (the new breed of politicians) that residents can only see us during "campaign time". In season and out of season, we must work. I may not be able to resolve ALL issues during my term but I want to do my best. Amongst the issues raised tonight : lack of public transportation in PJS 7, incorrect location of bus stops, increasing crime rate, stray dogs, lighting of parks, maintenance of flats, supervision work by MPSJ on contractors' works, dengue, sound barrier along LDP and etc. Is it scary meeting the residents? The answer is "yes, it can be daunting at times when faced with very unreasonable residents". I look for courage before each meeting with residents for I am only human.
