The railway elevation which has been expected will come true, Mituo Bridge of Moon Reflection for reshowing the view of heron flying over was built, and Lantan was renovated and beautified.
A good team makes great performances in office, Twu thanked to all director generals and the staff. They brought plenty of basic constructions for these 4 years to renew the city. The plans for the future which have been made are being executed, and some of them are supported by the central government. He wishes Chiayi City would lead to happiness for its sustainable development on the constructions.
The benefits of his performances can not only be seen but be experienced. Integrated screening is the best gift to the citizens, a volunteer of integrated screening of Public Health Bureau, Chen Yu-zhou said. Her husband's taking the wrong medicine resulted in the liver function index of her husband reaching up to 10,000. Luckily, he took integrated screening which brought him out of death. Chen Yu-zhou appreciated Lady Mayoress for letting her husband, the mayor, dedicate his service for Chiayi City for these 4 years.
I used to work from 8AM until midnight and barely had a chance to rest like a 7-11; I was always thinking about how to make Chiayi City better, Twu indicated. Politics is a tough journey full of continual rumor and smear spreading, but he's made it so far thanks to the citizens and the team. Although he will no longer devote his service, he still cherishes Chiayi City. Chiayi City is my home and the love for it remains, Twu said.
Twu today also specially thanked his wife for her supports all along. A professor in NTU or a doctor should have been a wonderful career, Twu expressed. However, he took office as the director general of Public Health Bureau, Taipei City, as the director general of Centers for Disease Control, and even as the minister of Ministry of Health and Welfare. His wife was once the one who disapproved the most yet she was still willing to afford the burdens for the ideals as the biggest supporter. Thank you, my beloved wife, Mayor Twu said and turned the bouquets to his wife.
