from The Mayor:
Dear residents of Elbasan,
Welcome to the portal of the Municipality of Elbasan!
This new portal will be a bridge between you and the
municipality. Through it our work on the development of the city will become
more transparent for you. In this portal, your voice will be heard about
important decisions that belong to us all. Community thinking will become a
guiding factor for decision-making in socio-cultural and economic policies. I
believe in you. I believe in Elbasan. It is a magnificent city with a
magnificent history and wonderful residents!
I believe that Elbasan can and should be better; with
better schools, better hospitals, and better roads. A city of modern welfare, a
city of development, and a more successful economy.
I long for Elbasan to be a city of common values and
goals, where meritocracy comes before privilege; a city that is governed for
all and not just for some. A strong and safe city for all.
I want to rebuild the trust of citizens in the capacity
of their municipality and its development policies and I want to do this by
taking some important commitments that I will implement before you. On this
basis, we will give each other confidence for our city and our future.
I want to re-establish trust in local government through
the fulfillment of the commitments we have taken towards you. Some things that
were done well by my predecessors will certainly remain intact, but what is for
what is outdated is exactly what I will change. I have no intention or desire
to replace a whole set of dogmas that exist with others.
And I want above all, to govern in a way that looks at
the city, to approach the periphery center and to give the city the unity to
face the great challenges ahead. I want to turn Elbasan into a city where she
can live well and where everything goes and changes with the everchanging times.
I want a city where we all feel as though we are part of
it, building the future of which we all work. A city in which the love I have
for my children, I have for you as well.
I will fight for Elbasan to be a city that is not afraid
of the challenges of the new millennium and technology, but faces these new
challenges and advances head on.
Write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and your
voices will be heard.
Qazim Sejdini, Mayor of Elbasan
