MP's quick response

SINGAPORE - The lift upgrading programme had resulted in poor visibility along the common corridors in Potong Pasir.

I sent an e-mail message about the problem to MP Sitoh Yih Pin at 4.20pm last Friday.

To my amazement, he replied immediately to apologise. When I returned home that evening, workers were installing temporary light fittings along the corridors.

Later that night, I saw Mr Sitoh and a town council officer inspecting the fittings. I thank him for his personal touch in such matters.
