| Ｔhere is ancient Chinese proverb that goes: "To rule
a country, you must be prudent and trustworthy, and you must
love and work for the people."
I believe strongly in these words. As your local government,
we should be careful about how we manage the budget. As the
budget is supplied by the people, we must ensure that any
surplus be used in a manner that benefits the people.
The local government is working to meet with community members,
and through mutual discussion, we hope to make this town an
even better place. It is my goal to make our town a place
where our citizens are proud to live.
Keeping this ancient Chinese proverb in mind, I promise to
uphold the position of authority and trust that the people
have entrusted me, and to make this town even better.
Thank you for your support and cooperation.
Takayoshi Kurita, Mayor of Manno town
