A Meeting with Young Politicians


After a few days of rest in Ipoh, I am back at work. I worked on the constituency newsletter most of the morning. Then I had a lunch meeting with a group of young politicians from America, both Democrats and Republicans. They are visiting the region as part of the US Government State Department initiative to improve their future politicians awareness of regional issues. I briefed them on the fiscal challenges and answered their queries on fundraising. They were also genuinely shocked that Malaysian MPs are not provided with officers paid by the government.

Later my office will be having our Star Wars fundraiser and I will post up more pics then.
