MIRI: Senadin assemblyman Datuk Lee Kim Shin has put the disappointment of his narrow win in the state polls last week behind him and is getting down to the business of serving his constituents.
Lee went to visit victims of a recent fire at Tudan Phase 6 yesterday and also inspected a road construction at Desaras Phase 6. The road construction project, which cost RM80,000, is expected to be completed in a month’s time.
Lee was pleased that fire victim 41-year-old Jekin Ami’s house has been rebuilt and he is now assisting the latter to get electricity supply connected to his house.
Jekin lost his house in the fire on March 30. The new house was built on a “gotong-royong” basis by SUPP members with an estimated cost of RM13,000 for building materials.
Lee also visited another villager Mazlan Othman, 13, who suffered a broken leg in a motorcycle accident.
Lee is serving a fast growing constituency with a population of about 100,000.
Senadin consists of the satellite towns of Bandar Baru Permyjaya, Senadin, Tudan resettlement, Vista Perdana housing scheme and many more residential areas including village settlements in Kuala Baram.
Lee had vowed to continue to work at his level best to serve all the people in his constituency in spite of the razor-thin victory.
Lee is one of only two SUPP Chinese candidates who won in the polls.
He said: “I am personally going to meet the voters and thank them for their support and will continue to do so tomorrow and many days after.’’
He garnered 7,334 votes to win Senadin by a majority of just 58 votes against DAP’s Michael Teo.
