“Good proposals have no political colors”

Trzaskowski emphasized that the choice is a great satisfaction, but also a huge obligation. – After five very difficult years, no one expected how difficult these years would be, how many crises we would face, the residents supported my current policy and already in the first round of voting gave me a mandate to continue the policy I pursued together with the Warsaw Council – he said.

– When it comes to changing Warsaw, it is very important to consider how to do it together. Because good proposals are not political. Good ideas are simply good ideas and it is worth talking about them, said the mayor of the capital.

He admitted that “the last five years have probably taught us all that we cannot guess what opportunities and challenges the city will face.” – We must be ready for any crises and take responsible actions. We must listen to each other and cooperate to turn Warsaw into the best city to live in. Because Warsaw has such aspirations, said Trzaskowski.
