Tough task ahead for new MPSJ head
By HASNITA SHAARI
IF his first meeting with the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) staff is anything to go by, then the new MPSJ president Abdul Hakim Borhan has a tough task ahead of him.
It certainly did not speak well of the staff when they could not behave with decorum during Abdul Hakim's welcoming ceremony at the council building yesterday.
While the new President was delivering his maiden speech to his staff, they behaved no better than a bunch of chattering school children, to the point of being rude.
Above the chatter, reporters and guests at the function had difficulty making out Abdul Hakim's speech or the welcoming address by MPSJ councillor Datuk Lee Hwa Beng.
Yesterday's scene was in stark contrast to the mood of former council president Datuk Ahmad Fuad Ismail where one could hear a pin drop when he was giving a speech.
As if to assure the new president about the ability of his staff, council secretary Slamat Hamzah, in his welcoming address, said the council had a good and co-operative team, who had helped the council achieve the level of success it now enjoyed. [...]
Abdul Hakim reminded his staff to focus on giving excellent service to the residents who are an educated lot.
"You should work with a positive attitude, be tolerant, ethical, have good communicational skills, especially when handling complaints, and most importantly, be trustworthy."
