I just received an email from an SPH journalist who wished to interview me about town councils and their gigantic sinking funds.
She says that her likely angle will be about netizens expressing their unhappiness about how town councils are using the conservancy and service charges paid by Singaporeans.
I still do interviews with non-mainstream publications, academic researchers, foreign university students etc. But it has been my personal policy for quite some time now to avoid contact with the mainstream media. So I will decline this interview.
However, if any of you netizens out there feel strongly about this matter and are interested in speaking to this journalist, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave your contact details in the comment section below. And I will ask the journalist if she would be interested in getting in touch with you.
A reader by the name of Coder had earlier left many detailed comments on my town council post and has obviously done some good research into the matter. Coder, it might be particularly interesting for you to speak to the SPH journalist - do consider.
And thanks for your earlier comments.
