Sungai Kandis residents want approachable rep
SHAH ALAM: Sungai Kandis residents want an elected representative who is accessible and will solve their problems.
“Residents have been complaining about potholes and heavy vehicles that damage the roads,” businesswoman Norhasiva Mazalan, 34, told the New Straits Times yesterday.
“The roads are small, and heavy vehicles are causing congestion and posing a threat to motorcyclists.
“I hope the new assemblyman will get the authorities to address these issues.”
Norhasiva’s views were shared by Rambeli Hassan, 42.
“We want the roads to be fixed, especially the potholes.
“And the authorities should ban heavy vehicles from passing by this route,” said Rambeli.
Long-time resident Zaharin Tugimim, 53, said he was hoping for an elected representative who was accessible to the public.
“Do not be a leader who disappears right after winning the seat. We want an approachable leader who will work for the people.
“I believe it would be easier to communicate with a local elected representative who is familiar with our problems and can be contacted easily.
“If we cannot meet him at his office, we can always find him at his house.
“But, it is also not an issue if the candidate is an outsider, as long as he or she strives to do the best for the people.”
