Speaking at the Democratic Alliance (DA)’s electoral campaign for Cape Town in Mitchells Plain, the current mayor of CT Patricia de Lille says she will continue where she stopped with the progress recorded in the city if re-elected into office.
In her speech, Patricia de Lille says if re-elected to the office of the Mayor in Cape Town, she’ll build on the city’s success over the past five years and achieve more.
“We will continue to deliver good and quality services to all the people of the City of Cape Town. We will continue to deliver housing opportunities, create jobs and create an economic climate conducive for the private sector to create jobs.”
The mayor also pointed out that she’ll be focusing on the issue of land acquisition and creation of jobs by providing a conducive environment for the private sector to invest.
Mayor Patricia de Lille took up the office of the CT mayor in 2011.
She boldly told the voters gathered at the launch of the campaign that if they do not believe in the constitutional values of freedom‚ fairness and opportunity‚ and again, if the constitution does not mean anything to them‚ then they should get ready to welcome the ANC and its President Jacob Zuma into their government again.
She cited Cape Town as a good example of what was possible when power is handed over to the right people. This will ensure a government that cares and listens to the voice of the people.
Cape Town had just received a third clean audit in a row and offered the highest standard of basic services in the country Patricia De Lille revealed that Cape Town’s economy also had the lowest level of unemployment in the country by creating over 35‚000 Expanded Public Works Programme job opportunities on average every year.
DA leader Mmusi Maimane was also present at the campaign.
