To create a better community, it is important to improve the quality of towns, where most people live and work in our time. It is also important to understand and analyze the current condition of society by using statistical analysis and by gathering input from citizens in order to formulate effective, data-driven policies. From this point of view, I hope to include as many people as possible in the discussion of town management policy.
