At the launch of his official campaign, Dr Chee shared that Bukit Batok residents are looking not just for somebody they can go to during the MPS. Instead they wish for somebody to sit down with them, to be their friend, listen to their problems and raise it up in Parliament.
In order to achieve this, Dr Chee firmly believes it can only be done by a full-time MP like he intends to be. He said “It is just not humanly possible for you to go to work from 9 to 5 and then stay back for more meetings … and then come back 7, 8 o’clock and tell everybody, I’m going to serve you with all my heart.”
Dr Chee pledged to continue reaching out to Bukit Batok residents and emphasized that should he be elected, every morning when he wakes up, his first destination is Bukit Batok unlike PAP’s Murali Pillai whose first destination is his swanky lawyer’s office.
