Mayor of Gongju
CHOI WON CHEOL.
Through trust, practicality, and progress!
Gongju, the Gateway to a Happy Future!
Greetings, citizens! I am the Mayor of Gongju, CHOI WON CHEOL.
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the more than 110,000 citizens who have entrusted me as the 8th Mayor of Gongju. In this role, I will do my utmost to make my hometown a better place for all.
For Gongju, with its rich and splendid history tied to the Baekje Kingdom’s Ungjin period and limitless development potential, the road forward will require us to bring about innovative changes and take bold new leaps.
To succeed, we will have to overcome many obstacles, such as population decline and the local economic crisis, and breathe new life into a city that has gradually become stagnant over the years.
There is an old idiom, “bun gol swae shin,” which means to work even until your bones crumble to dust to achieve success. As your new Mayor, I promise to do just that in my mission to develop Gongju into a luxurious city with superior population growth, economic vitality, historical and cultural significance, and educational and welfare opportunities.
In addition, I will strive for an administration that values “communication and service,” while never losing focus on my original mission. I vow to always listen to the voices of all 110,000 citizens of Gongju, communicate with an open mind, and fulfill their wishes to see Gongju become “a luxurious city where every citizen is happy.”
#1 in the citizen happiness index! You are the heart and soul of Gongju, so please use this website as an open forum to submit your valuable opinions to us, and we will do our best to implement practical policies and institute beneficial reforms.
Everyone! Let's go forward together for a new Gongju!
