Punggol East By-Election Candidate Introduction – Lee Li Lian

My name is Lee Li Lian.

I’m the eldest of three daughters and I grew up in a HDB 3 room flat in Lor Lew Lian. I’m happily married to a Telecommunications Consultant.

In the last GE2011, I was honoured to be chosen as the candidate for Punggol East SMC. It was my maiden election and I must say that the experience was enriching and very fulfilling. It was a natural decision that when the seat became open, I would want to have the opportunity to serve the residents of Punggol East. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the party leadership for entrusting me with this responsibility again.

As someone who is looking at starting a family, I can empathise with the considerations and concerns that young couples and young families have. Concerns such as raising children in a time where the cost of living is going up, and the environment is becoming increasingly competitive, especially in schools. The challenges that young families and single parents are facing and the welfare of our elderly folks are some of the national issues that I will be focusing on.

Given my experience as a ground activist for the past six years, I have met and interacted with people from different walks of life. This enabled me to better understand the needs of a wide spectrum of our population. I believe that I am well placed to serve the residents of Punggol East. I hope that the residents of Punggol East will give me the opportunity to represent them in Parliament.

大家好,我是李丽连。

2011年5月大选,是我第一次参选,也是我第一次走进榜鹅东的每一个角落,巴刹、商店、组屋,家家户户,接触这里的新旧居民,让我感受到这个地方的特色。

榜鹅东单选区是唯一出现三角战的选区。但是榜鹅东选民还是给了我41%的支持率,让我有信心,在两年后的今天,再度回到榜鹅东,寻求选民的委托。

我知道这是一场硬战,但是因为榜鹅东选民给我的鼓励,以及新加坡选民对工人党的支持。所以,即使选战再难打,工人党还是派我回到榜鹅东,再次为选民提供一个选择。

这一次,我希望榜鹅东的选民给我机会,一起打造榜鹅东的未来。

谢谢!
