Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya - No changes because Mayor and staff following 'old policies and old ways...' of BN - so, not Pakatan's fault

Well, in response to the post, 'Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya - Where is the transparency and accountability? ', I received the following response, which is interesting..

"...To be fair to all parties, we must also not forget that the Datuk Bandar of the MBPJ remains the same man who had been appointed/selected by the BN.

Also, most of the employees at the MBPJ are the same people - those who had worked for the BN, and now for the PR. Therefore, old policies and old ways remain...."

Is this the reason for Pakatan Rakyat's inability to bring about reforms and changes? If so, then sadly I must state that this is so lame.

The people voted you in as government in Selangor - and you now are in power in Selangor, and is your reason for lack of changes and reform this? i.e. "...the mayor and all the staff are not 'listening' or 'following' you..."

I look at the MBPJ Website again, and would like to report that there is still no changes...

Still no transparency, accountability, etc...

It would be good if people could also get some background about the Local Councilors, and then maybe we will know the reason why the State Government appointed them? Be good to also know their political affiliations, etc...

Your views and opinions would be good...

If it`s lame, and pakatan takes action, and those same people take legal action, they will have to be allowed to continue to serve pending outcome of the court trials (costs borne by the taxpayers naturally).

To top it, even if they are put in the library twiddling thumbs awaiting outcome of the court cases, others will have to be employed to replace them. The replacements will come from the BN`s ivil Service again.

I think PKR Adun in Selangor and staff may be quite ambivalent in talking to their civil servants appointed under BN rule. I think for these Adun a short course on leadership training would be damn good for their confidence. Its very disappointing that some do not have leadership skills...tsk..tsk..so how to lead the state?
