The Civil Service Bureau (CSB) Volunteer Team today distributed leaflets to civil servants outside the Central Government Offices (CGO) in Tamar to remind them to vote in the District Council (DC) election on December 10.


Led by Secretary for the Civil Service Ingrid Yeung, staff members from the Administrative Officer and Executive Officer grades, and other grades, met colleagues on the walkways and footbridge outside the CGO as they left work in the evening.


Mrs Yeung stressed that the DC election scheduled for December 10 is the first to be held following improvements to the district governance system and the reform of district councils.


“We all earnestly hope that the new DCs (can) make district services more targeted and bring stability and development to Hong Kong,” she said. “Civil servants, like members of the general public, should actively participate in it.”


Mrs Yeung added that this was the first time that the CSB had joined hands with the four central civil service consultative councils to promote the importance of the election to civil servants.


She said the CSB Volunteer Team hopes to encourage colleagues to grasp the opportunity to elect DC members who can do real work to benefit the districts. It will continue its promotional efforts at other government buildings.
