LET THERE BE LIGHT

Right after I won the election, I received multiple complaints about the parks in Subang Jaya, mainly on lighting. We began to investigate as to why 21 parks had lamp-posts but they were not lighted. Result of the investigation - these lamp-posts were installed prior to election in March using funds from the Land Office but some were not built in accordance to specifications while others were not connected to TNB.

My team began reporting these cases to MPSJ and pushed for parks to be lighted up in Subang Jaya. New lamp-posts were also installed in 6 parks. As a result, a total of 27 parks have been lighted up as of November 2008:
1.USJ 1/2A
2.USJ 1/4L
3.USJ 2/6E
4.USJ 3/3M
5.USJ 4/8
6.USJ 5/1D
7.USJ 5/3A
8.USJ 6/2C
9.USJ 6/4B
10.USJ 6/6D
11.USJ 9/5J
12.USJ 11/2E
13.USJ 11/3F
14.USJ 12/2F
15.USJ 13/1D
16.USJ 13/3B
17.SS 15/5E
18.SS 15/5G
19.SS 17/2J
20.SS 18/3D
21.SS 18/4B
22.SS 18/5A
23.SS 19/1
24.SS 19/2
25.SS 19/6K
26.PJS 7/11D
27.PJS 9/20

Next year, I will continue to push for more parks to be lighted up. This is one of the steps I have taken to improve safety in our neighbourhood. With these lights on, residents can go for walks in the evening at these parks and feel safer. You can read more about it here as reported in The Star and here as reported in the blog of one of the resident groups. A big thank you to MPSJ for their cooperation.

When I personally went to check on the parks and to take photographs, I bumped into the Rukun Tetangga of PJS 9 doing their rounds at midnight. Syabas to the team for working hard for the safety of their neighbourhood!

Wow!!!... Thanks Hannah & MPSJ. Wonderful. There is indeed lights at the end of the tunnel for Subang after so many years! Can we also have more street lights later also..

You are doing a good job.

Get those parks lighted is a big improvement!

However, going to parks at night time, we better always go together with a group of people.

Nowadays, robbery and more serious crime can even happen in day time.
So, night time will sure be more
dangerous.

Anyhow, again, having such parks
lighted is a big improvement, which we did not last time.

Hannah Yeoh does bring good changes
to our community! Let's us support her FOREVER!

Hi Hannah,

At the rate you're working and producing results for the people of Subang Jaya, the local offices of all the BN parties will soon become museums.

Way to go, Honourable YB Hannah Yeoh.

million thanks to the left hand corner where you put the "how to complaint to mpsj and how to contact police" ALL MP AND ADUN MUST HAVE THIS INFO in their websites.

Hi Hannah,

I can see the great effort that you have been carrying out in such a short period after the March's GE.

If my constituency - Taman Johor Jaya, Johor can have such a responsible & hardworking YB like you, this area will be more safer & lively. What I can see the MCA state assemblyman does is to attend wedding dinner & open ceremony for the new restaurant. He makes no effort to improve the most basic's need of the ppl here which is "security". snatch thief is so "free" to do whatever they want, ppl here are just waiting the time to be the next victim.

Can DAP or Keadilan propel more credible & responsible ppl like Norman Joseph to help the ppl here. I have given up hope on BN especially MCA, ADUN here Tan Cher Puk. Shame on him!!

With reference to today's star "In reference to Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh’s announcement that lights had been installed in 27 parks in Subang Jaya (“Lights in 27 parks in Subang Jaya”, StarMetro, Dec 23, pg 5), Ong said that credit should also be given to the Federal government which had allocated funds for the lamp-posts through the Land Office."
Everyone wants to take the credit...but then how come only now er get the lights up? During LWB's time, it is still loom and gloom? And MCA people only seen as distributing calendars?? For what? The people need to see things happening to their constituency not getting once a year calendar!!!

Quote "the Federal government which had allocated funds for the lamp-posts through the Land Office."
Yes of course the funds have to come from federal government. And where federal government gets the money? From Rakyat's income tax of course. So what is the big deal? Unless Ong is saying that the money comes from MCA politician own pocket, then it would be a big deal. This is what i call blowing the trumpet through the wrong hole.

Am also proud that kids in subang jaya can go camping at the backyard of their houses. This has never happened before. The constituency in Subang has seen changes indeed.

Hahaha..... poor guy MCA gonna walk around Pasar pagi/malam to 'please' d rakyat.
y do it now?
d message is very clear:

"Rakyat gonna unite & kick corrupted regime racist umno & their lap-dogs hard enough to get regime pleasing their BOSS(Rakyat) !"

It's Rakyat power that put them up & it was Rakyat tax money who paying them salary!
corrupted regime racist umno selalu ingat:
- m'sia, dia yang punya !
- wang & khazanah negara, dia yang punya !
- melayu & islam, dia yang punya !
- bandaraya, sekolah/universiti, GLC, polis, ACA, AG & judiciary dia yang punya !
Pohdah..... itu semua Rakyat m'sia punyalah !!!!

Good. Now we can feel safer and make good use of the parks provided.

Hannah, can you also please look into the Subang Lake. The place is in very bad condition and do not even have a proper playground. It would be nice to turn it into a nice recreation area for everyone.
