My political secretary, Edward Ling has recently been included in the DAP Socialist Youth (DAPSY) leadership for 2008-2010. This is good news for the youth of Subang Jaya as this is a national committee. May the voice of our youth be heard in all areas of governance.
For those who do not know, Edward Ling played a key role in inspiring me to register myself as a voter prior to March 2008. His interest in politics started when he was still in school. He would read the newspapers more than his textbooks and that passion never ceased. Returning from Australia after obtaining his degree, he began to seriously consider how he could make a difference in our nation's politics. He would speak to his friends over coffee on the effect of corruption and danger of being indifferent. I was one of them at such coffee sessions. Sometimes, a single act of encouraging someone to do something small yet positive could lead to something way greater than what you can ever ask or imagine. Congratulations Edward! May you continue to inspire many more young people to bring change to this land. For more information on Edward, please visit his blog http://www.edwardling.blogspot.com/
