The Mayor That Should Be Governor
Not since former Mayor Rudy Giulliani of NewYork and former Mayor of Makati City and now Vice President of the Republic of the Philippines Jejomar Binay has there been a mayor that has so inspired his fellow citizens with Hope, that things can be better.
And that’s exactly what Mayor of Solo Jokowi has done, continues to do, and plans to bring to the governorship of Jakarta, Indonesia.
The odds are against him, admittedly. The incumbent has the luxury of the government’s office and resources at his disposal. He certainly outspent his political opponents … but everybody loves an underdog, especially the kind that has truly worked for the citizenry. And this is what Jokowi intends to replicate in Jakarta … a template of good governance.
Regardless of the electoral outcome tomorrow, he has done one thing for all the citizens of Jakarta that no other politician has done in recent memory … instill in their hearts to want for something better, to work for something better, and that, together, great things can happen.
If you’re a citizen and a registered voter of Jakarta, from North, South, East, West, and Central … storm the electoral precincts and let your collective voices be heard.
Vote for Jokowi.
