I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to you, the citizens of Sejong, for re-electing me as the mayor of their city.
With the belief that your decision was a stern order to complete the process of transforming Sejong into the administrative capital of Korea, I promise you that I will devote all my effort to the purpose.
It has been a lifelong dream of mine to turn Korea into a country where there is balanced development across all regions so that people thrive and prosper regardless of where they live.
So it is truly an honor and a rewarding experience for me to build the city of Sejong, and I feel confident knowing that you will be with me along this journey.
I will make every effort to develop Sejong, arguably the most extraordinary city in Korea, into the administrative capital of Korea and an exemplary city of autonomous decentralization where the will of citizens is realized.
I will develop Sejong into a world-class city where every resident can enjoy a leisurely and balanced life.
I will develop Sejong into a smart administrative city that is worthy of global attention and serves as a global leader in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
I wish to build Sejong, the administrative capital governed under the sovereignty of the people, together with you, and I vow to work harder and communicate more with the people.
