YET TO BE FILLED:One seat remains vacant at the Subang Jaya Municipal Council
FOUR councillors were sworn in on Wednesday even though one seat remains vacant at the Subang Jaya Municipal Council.
First-time councillor Michael Noel Jalleh, 52, works for a non-governmental religious body called the Malaysian Christian Association for Relief. He hoped to tackle the social problems among the youths in the rural and urban areas.
"I am keen in tackling problems faced by the youths and the urban poor. Especially those living in places such as the Enggang apartment in Bandar Kinrara," he said.
Councillor for the fourth time, Cheah Sang Soon, 46, who owns an engineering-related business is once again all ready to serve the public.
Cheah served residents living in the Bandar Kinrara area during his past three terms. But his new area of service is yet to be determined.
"I don't mind serving any area of the community. I am willing to contribute, he said.
Rajiv Rishyakaran, 31, is the youngest councillor in the line-up. He was appointed for the third term and will be serving the community at SS13 and SS16. Rajiv said his biggest challenge will be related to the Light Rail Transit (LRT) developments in the area.
Councillor for the second term, Loka Ng Sai Kai, 47, is appointed under the non-governmental organisation seat.
He is the vice-president of Loka Mitta Buddhist Fellowship Malaysia. His area of service will be Puchong and he hopes to champion the needs of the disabled.
"My focus will be to address the needs of the disabled and tackle environmental issues."
All four councillors took their oath before MPSJ president Datuk Asmawi Kasbi.
