According to Our Class Notes, 15 People's Action Party town councils received more than $60 million for community improvement projects in the past two years. Workers Party's Aljunied-Hougang Town Council received none. https://www.ourclassnotes.com/post/cipc-funds-which-town-council-got-how-much

These funds came from the Community Improvement Projects Committee (CIPC), which must be sought through the constituency’s Citizens’ Consultative Committee (CCC). This body under the People’s Association (PA) will vet applications from the ward’s elected MPs, and decide which project should be proposed to the CIPC for funding.

As Sengkang GRC now is under the Workers' Party and there are plans to establish a new town council, the public needs an assurance from the CIPC, especially:
- Huang Weiming, Constituency Director, Sengkang West Constituency Office
- Nazrul Tarik Bin Jahafer Sadiq, Constituency Director, Sengkang Central Constituency Office
- Tok Hock Soon, Director, North East CDD
- Yong Hua Yong, Group Constituency Director, Aljunied GRC & Hougang SMC, North East CDD
- Zaqy Mohamed, Chairman, Community Improvement Projects Executive Committee
- Victor Lye Thiam Fatt, Punggol East CCC chairperson*
- Raymond Chua Hock Chye, Sengkang West CCC chairperson*

1) that community improvement projects submitted by the new Sengkang Town Council as well as the current Aljunied-Hougang Town Council will be looked into and approved
2) that projects will not be blocked just because the town council is under a different political party
3) that the CIPC unequivocally commits to ensuring Sengkang GRC residents obtain similar living standards as residents in PAP constituencies who receive these projects

Solving this problem will ensure community improvement projects for Sengkang GRC are being approved and that funds will flow into the town council for necessary improvement works.

* = CCC chairpersons herein are named from a 2015 article by now-defunct The Middle Ground. I was not able to obtain an official list of CCC chairpersons to date from government-related sources. In the absence of such data, this petition assumes that the two named persons are in these roles currently.
