Declaration of Candidacy
In unity there is strength. In light of the challenges faced by Hong Kong in recent years, and with the support from friends of the Architectural, Surveying, Planning and Landscape functional constituency, I have decided to run for re-election, hoping to gather the constructive power of the professions and the positive energy of Hong Kong people, so as to work together for the further advancement of Hong Kong.
As a prevention measure against the pandemic, my friends are showing their support at different places in the Tamar Park. This reminds me of a saying by the late Auto Tycoon Henry Ford - “Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, and working together is success”. Gather together is only the beginning of the journey, whereas working together hand-in-hand will lead to the successful ending.
This is exactly the case of the work of our ASPL professions, in which we need to corporate with different parties, so as to build quality homes for Hong Kong people. With my supporters here today, I would like to make an announcement, “I will run for re-election as member of the 7th Hong Kong Legislative Council for the Architectural, Surveying, Planning and Landscape functional constituency!”
My election campaign slogan is “Together, We Achieve”, hoping that we could work together for the further advancement of Hong Kong.
My election philosophies are-
1. Innovative & Effective
2. Mobility & Opportunity
3. Health & Liveability
4. Development & Environment
5. Fair & Care
6. Responsive & Proactive
Some may query, “What’s the use with only one person working hard?” That’s right if one is only looking at the impact of one person. However, as mentioned by Helen Keller, the famous writer who was blind and deaf from early childhood, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” The power of one person is limited, it could be unlimited if we work together.
Now is the time for us to work hard; now is the time for Hong Kong to gather its momentum again; now is the time for us to move forward together.
Together, We Achieve.
Vote for Unity. Vote for TONY !!!
