Dear Jerusalem Residents,
I write these lines to you upon my assuming the role of mayor. It is important to me that you know that I intend to revolutionize the level of service provided by the municipality to the resident, to make it more accessible and inviting, and to integrate the technologies and innovation in the municipal systems, with which I am familiar from my previous experience in the private and public markets.
We will achieve this revolution through unity of purpose and devotion to the work of the public representatives and municipal employees.
Already, in the first days of our assuming office, we succeeded in increasing the municipal budget considerably, and we intend to continue to bring to Jerusalem many additional budgets that will advance us and help us assist the city's residents.
With these external budgets, together with the property taxes, we will significantly increase the budget for culture, expand the extent of free parking space, invest in improving the level of education, implement in a broad manner the Free Education Law for every child in our city, build neighborhoods for young couples at affordable prices, we will promote cleaning and gardening drives throughout the city, and more.
We look forward together, towards days of advancement, construction, and action before us.
I thank all of you--only together will we succeed.
Mayor of Jerusalem
