From the Mayor’s Desk
Building A Caring & Cohesive North East

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. It is truly my privilege to succeed Mr Teo Ser Luck as Mayor of North East District. North East CDC has seen many successes with its programmes under Mayor Teo’s stewardship, and we are grateful to his contribution.

As we start the next chapter at North East CDC, the team has identified three focal areas: 1) employment and skills upgrading, 2) social support and 3) strengthening of community vigilance and resilience. Over the next few months, you will discover new programmes and initiatives aligned to these areas, and I strongly encourage you and your family to participate, or above and beyond, volunteer with us.

Part of our mandate is to ensure that the local assistance schemes and social programmes remain relevant. These are critical in building a caring and cohesive community, making North East District a great place to live, work and raise our children.

I look forward to work closely with our Grassroots Organisations, community partners and also to get to know you better. Together, we can address the challenges Singapore faces and build on our strengths to secure our future.

You too can do your part in building the community. Do write in and tell us what programmes you’d love to have near you.

Desmond Choo
Mayor of North East District
