Tanjong Datu assemblywoman Datuk Amar Jamilah Anu has called on Lundu folk to be patient as she works to beautify and develop the town.
She said Lundu has great potential to attract more visitors.
“I want to make Lundu into a clean and beautiful place much like Sematan with attractions for locals and visitors,” she told reporters when met at the State Legislative Assembly (DUN) Complex yesterday.
Jamilah pledged to fulfil the promises made during the by-election, and to uphold her husband Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem’s legacy.
“I believe the implementation of the bridge will bring more visitors and tourists there. More development, both minor and major, will be implemented gradually and involve a huge of budget, so these will take time,” she said.
She explained that her immediate plans would focus on enhancing the cleanliness and hygiene of the area, especially the hawker stalls with the introduction of food safety.
“Not that the area is not clean but we want to better the environment — cleaner and more organised like in Kuching and Batu Kawah,” she added.
“I hope people in Lundu can be patient because I am coming down to see them after this DUN sitting.”
Jamilah earlier witnessed the presentation of RM300,000 in state funds to SK Chung Hua Lundu for the construction of a preschool and other facilities.
Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg presented the cheque to school board chairman Chen Chung Yee.
