Keep the town councils intact following the election of MPs

It is very costly and wasteful to change the structure of the town council when there is a change of party that heads the council.

The PAP govt should stop this nonsense and wastage.

The town council should remain fixed. Any change in the elected MPs should be represented in the board of the town council.

The constituencies under each town council should not change.

The daily operations should remain under full time managers. There should be no need to change the people running the operations, until their term expires and another management contract is evaluated.

We should also not change signboards and other printed materials.

The wasted money comes from the tax payers.

Do you agree?

    Tan Golden Chain,

    This time I TOTALLY agree with you. You should go to Mandai and tell your GREAT suggestion to Lee Kayu, the MM(MasterMind)of the whole damn Town Council scheme of thing! Period.

  • Waste of money:

    Town council should be run by professional Manager and report to the MP.
    MP should spend more time on important duties …

  • Protect Atas People:

    The yaya PAPayas have been given blank cheque for far too long already. They’re so used to splurging money senselessly that they don’t even know what’s the meaning of “WASTE MONEY”.

    All they could think of is how to fix the opposition, make things difficult for them and then find fault with them if the opposition takes over their constituency.

  • NotMyProblem:

    Management of PAP’s town councils can be corrupted but when under the Opposition, the management maybe checked and watched. So the management of the TC may want to change, to be under PAP’s MPs again.

  • Good One!:

    PAP set up town council as a trap for alternative parties. Just look at AIM to confirm the trap purpose.

    How to run a town council with zero software?

    How is an independent candidate going to run a town council? He has to get software, hire many personnel, set up system, what the hack! Meanwhile, the voters will be denied service. It is NOT a democracy that a single good man cannot stand for election.

    Eg, if Tommy Koh stands in an SMC, he will surely win. How the hack is he going to set up a town council from scratch! The town council system forbids good man from election.

    Totally undemocratic.

  • Crap PAP:

    National Day parades are for Foreigners to enjoy a free show, using millions of taxpayer money. hardly any Singaporean want to attend NDP. Poor NS men have to work their ass off for so many weekends such to please foreigners and foreign dignitaries.

    Even The Shit Times newspaper.. many Singaporeans have stopped reading the PAP propaganda newspaper.

    I believe there are governing rules in Town Councils that apply to ALL…

    An Alternate Party taking over is at Liberty to Change so long as the Rules stay…Should WP decide to Unite all Town Council ie the two GRCs and the Single-seat into one Governing Body and Management…why NOT!!! if it can save cost and increase the productivity of its staff and Management…

    Obviously the sniffer dogs will be out sniffing and whistleblowers will blow the whistle if two rats are making it out in the open instead of a confine rathole

  • Tremendous:

    The reason those idiot chiefs said the councils have to change is because they changed the boundaries for elections. Non idiots know it’s because they gerrymander. The writer is right, it’s a waste of taxpayers’ money. The ominous signs of villagers’ rejection are there. These chiefs will have to think twice about doing this five years later. Village above their group interests instead of the other way round LIKE NOW.

  • PR is Singaporean:

    Their sole purpose is to make life hard with insurmountable difficulties in managing a town council to scare off any aspiring opposition MPs wanting to stand for election.

    The very thought of this fear will deter any opposition from contesting in the GE thereby giving them a WALK OVER.

    True. Sometimes TKL don’t make sense. But this one makes sense.
    This also shows how apathetic or UNTHINKING unquestioning Singaporeans are despite being educated.

    The disruptions to town councils is a problem that should not exist because voters are stake holders who do not deserve to be affected by something caused by garment not doing the needful to facilitate transition.

    It incurs cost and introduce problems affecting Residents who pay s&cc.

    This is why papaya should think about Serving the Residents as top priority over Partisanship.
    We do not owe PAP anything. They are in fact overpaid and I won’t say obsenely overpaid.

  • 61% cotton producing sheep:

    for once we think tan kin lian is on the money.

    BUT we must remember pap clown’s main job is to FIX oppo. the more oppo in parleement, the more time pap clown spends fixing them.

    town council is one of the tools pap created to FIX oppo. see how pap tried to FIX WP in Aljunied.

    see also how WP received even more votes in Aljunied despite pap fixing.

    the takeaway is, as more of the older pap supporting folks die off, the less potent is ANY tool from pap PA paid arsenal to fix OPPO.

    we have never voted pap. we never will. pap can FIX oppo all it can. we vote OPPO as long as we can vote. town council is for the public works deparment, rightfully, not someone we voted in parleement to rename it into parliament.

    we sense everything shall be fine after GE2024, after east coast falls into WP hands, after marine parade falls into WP hands and after west coast falls into PSP hands.

    4 years. not a long time.

    Our country’s reserves are kept top secret and cannot be disclosed except the the top Papayas knew about it. I doubt the papsident know the amount in the reserves. I think the papsident just rubber-stamp it whenever the top Papaya chiefs need to draw out $$$. Wastage of $$$ in not in the Papaya vocabulary. They oredi own-selves pay own-selves millions of $$$.

    A Bastard who started it all once said in the early hours after the election when JBJ won Anson…

    The voting system should be changed to…

    “NOT ALLOW” idiots in his evil slitty RAT eyes to VOTE if possible but that being NOT POSSIBLE…

    suggested 2 Votes for those with education or Elites in his Rat Eyes…and 1 vote for the Lower Mortals…

    The Violin play on in Parliament and the Rats carry on chewing stinking CHEESE!!!
