Sembawang GRC. Mr Khaw Boon ALL RIGHTS RESERVED PUBLISHED BY AND AT THE DIRECTIONS OF PEOPLE'S ACTION PARTY Block 57B New. Fun fact: The lawyer always checks his rearview mirror when leaving Meet The People sessions. Amrin Amin, MP for Sembawang GRC, had his first Meet-the-People Session ( MPS) at Block Woodlands Street Sembawang GRC's Mr Amrin, who is Parliamentary Secretary for Home Affairs, Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC's.
An interesting case that I recall was with a resident who travelled down all the way from Pasir Ris.
Her main concern was about animal rights and she was quite determined to meet Minister K Shanmugam who is also the Minister for Law. Our team managed to assist her further after her meeting with Minister Shanmugam and I recall her leaving our branch with a smile. I have once helped a resident who was a divorcee and was on the verge of being homeless with her 3 children.
I remember seeing her leave the branch with much anticipation on the outcome of her appeals. I bumped into her again at Chong Pang Market several week after.

I have forgotten how she looked like but it was nice that she still recalled me. She gave me a big hug and told me that she has received the appropriate assistance and that she was able to cope with her financial responsibilities a much better.PAP's new candidate for Sembawang GRC Amrin Amin on social mobility
Even though MPS often stretches to 11pm, the feeling of seeing a dejected resident smile is priceless. The residents are our true everyday heroes and the experience of serving them is immensely satisfying and addictive. Most volunteers at the branch have been serving for several years. N Jayakumar Kumar is a volunteer at the branch who has been serving for almost 30 years. Despite his stellar personal achievements, he is a very humble person who truly enjoys serving Chong Pang Residents.
Much of my learning for the volunteer writer role was from Mr.
His enthusiasm to serve residents is infectious. Ms Cheng is planning a programme for volunteers to accompany elderly folk to clinic visits, while Mr Amrin is promoting social mobility at the local level by encouraging needy schoolchildren in his constituency to work hard for their exams. I'd like to see. If you pass all your papers or improve, I'll give you a present. In response to the cynic who thinks this is just to win votes, Mr Chee says: One month after GE "But we do this because we believe this is an important way of reaching out to our residents and seeing how we can help improve their lives.
Meet the MP session
If this subsequently translates into votes, that's a bonus, but I think as MPs, we have a responsibility to serve them well," he says. Mr Chee has found that in his new role as a politician, he gets in touch with residents more directly than when he was a public servant. But his experience and network from his former life as a civil servant comes in handy when he petitions public agencies on behalf of his constituents. Having that knowledge of how the system works is useful," he says.
As for Ms Cheng, who had been heavily involved with grassroots volunteering and shadowing MPs before the polls, the number of activities she attends a week has not changed since being elected.
But one difference for her is a pressure to live up to residents' expectations. But several branches had to be reconfigured due to population shifts. This meant that the PAP needed to create several new branches and rename others. These local headquarters are where the MP meets residents during the MPS, where activists gather and where activities are planned and paperwork is done. Workers' Party trying to move forward Limbang was one of these new branches. Despite being short of time and low on resources, the branch members swung into action to set up a small temporary branch office.
To notify residents of the new location, Mr Wong and his volunteers posted updates on social media, gave out leaflets at the old branch's location and put up fliers on noticeboards.
That night, 40 constituents braved the haze to turn up.
