Ron Tan, one of the Workers’ Party (WP) candidates for the coming general election, on Saturday morning (27 June) distributed flyers and the party’s newsletter The Hammer with volunteers.
“Jalan-jalan on a cool Saturday morning with our volunteers. #makeyourvotecount,” wrote Mr Tan in a Facebook post today.
Mr Tan, 34, previously contested in Nee Soon in GE 2015.
A graduate of law and commerce of the University of Western Australia, he currently works as a Senior Assistant Manager at the NUHS Research Office.
He also has nine years of experience in WP’s grassroots efforts under his belt, and has also served the role of a legislative assistant to former Party secretary-general Low Thia Khiang.
Responding to a question on the most important lesson he had learnt during his experience as a legislative assistant to Mr Low, Mr Tan said that recognising the magnitude of the responsibility of taking care of residents in a constituency has been such.
Mr Low, he said, “will personally follow up” with any issue raised by residents, even if such an issue appeared to be as small as “the light not working” in a particular area of a housing block, for example.
Mr Tan in his introductory speech during WP’s virtual press conference yesterday also called on young Singaporeans step up to take on more responsibilities and to speak up for their seniors, their cohort, and their children.
