“I would like to be a politician, and I promise not only to face the problems most politicians dare not face, but also to brighten the brand so that Taitung is not just Taitung,” says Taitung County Magistrate, April Yao. On December 25 2019, Magistrate Yao held an inaugural tea party under the them of showcasing Taitung’s unlimited potential, marking one year of her tenure. Since taking office, Yao’s focus has been on getting things done pragmatically, as well as problem-solving. She has gained a deep understanding of the overall situation in Taitung in the shortest time, and thanked her team for all their effort and support during the tea party. In addition, she added that only by working together can Taitung make strides in the fields of medical treatment, transportation, and agriculture. By focusing on getting the job done, she will be able to fulfill promises made to residents step by step. “In the future, I hope to drive Taitung in a ‘slow and fast’ direction by means of promoting a slow economy, and the electrification of the Huadong and South-Line railways tracks. This will create endless possibilities for Taitung in becoming a city with diversified and balanced development,” adds Yao.

臺東縣政府於12月25日在縣府大禮堂召開饒縣長就職周年茶會,活動由縣府年度「音樂人才培訓計畫」成員斯馬里奧、zulje zulj、陳昱宏,自創組曲為茶會揭開序幕,並播放施政成果影片。代表中央駐縣機關致詞的水保局臺東分局長王志輝、代表議會致詞的章正輝議員都肯定饒縣長及縣府團隊一年的努力,也因為中央與地方建立良好的合作關係,有黃健庭前縣長的奠基,以及饒縣長持續推動,讓縣民有光榮感,到外縣市開會或旅遊,別人都投以羨慕眼光。

Taitung County Government held an annual tea party marking Yao’s one-year inauguration in office on December 25 last year. The event was attended by members of the Musical Talent & Training Program including Mario, Zulje Zulj, and Yu-Hung Chen. The event’s prelude was a short video showcasing the results of this administration’s achievements thus far. Director-General of the Bureau of Water Resources Protection Taitung Branch, Chi-Hui Wang, spoke on behalf of the central government in praising Magistrate Yao and her team for what they had accomplished in one year since taking office. He adds that the effort and hard work have strengthened the relations between the local and central government. The previous Magistrate Justin Huang’s legacy coupled with Magistrate Yao’s continuous promotion of Taitung County have given county residents a new sense of glory. Wang further points out that when meeting or traveling in other counties and cities, people have a sense of envy when it comes to what is happening in Taitung.

饒縣長於會中致詞表示,檢驗一名政治人物,最簡單的方法就是檢驗他曾經說過的話。今天當我重新回顧去年就職典禮時說過的話。捫心自問,我有信心的說:我很認真,而且做得還不錯。感謝臺東鄉親的鼓勵與肯定,以及縣府團隊的付出,才能在這一年成功爭取花東基金等各項資源並開創更多便民服務,饒縣長認為,縣長一職並非高位,而是要服務鄉親、為縣民做事,因此她也期盼縣府同仁苦民所苦、共同突破僵局,為民眾創造幸福。「我要以成為『政治家』自許,勇於面對多數政治人物不敢面對的問題,打亮品牌,讓臺東不只是臺東」

During the event, Magistrate Yao pointed out that the easiest way to test a politician is to review what he or she has said in the past. “Today, I look back at what I said during my inauguration in December 2018. I am quite confident when I say that I work hard, and I am doing pretty well. I would like to thank the people of Taitung for their encouragement and affirmation. In addition, if it were not for the efforts of the county government team, we would not have as many resources as we do now to create more convenient services,” said Magistrate Yao.She continues. “Holding the position of county magistrate is not about the title. It is about serving the people and getting things done.” Magistrate Yao added that she admires the hard work of her team in the county government, and looks forward to breaking barriers together to create happiness for the people of Taitung. “I want to be a politician, and to have the courage to face problems that most politicians dare not face, and to brighten up the Taitung brand so that Taitung is not just Taitung,” she repeats.

饒縣長表示,施政最重要的是做民眾需要的事,因此首先要解決縣內迫切的醫療與交通問題,今年引進醫療資源入偏鄉與離島,縣府也極力爭取,協助醫院擴增心臟外科、整形外科等專科醫師人力,馬偕及東基醫院分別通過重度急救醫院、急診中度級能力評定;交通方面關注縣內整合,4月達仁鄉、延平鄉幸福巴士、小黃公車順利上路,解決偏鄉大眾運輸缺乏的問題,這幾天東河、金峰等地幸福巴士也陸續啟動,補足一般公車無法抵達的最後一哩路。解決縣內問題之後,饒縣長要為臺東農業品牌開拓更多銷售通路,像是近日成功推銷臺東72件友善耕作產品於全家便利商店「全家行動購」上架,讓更多臺東優質好產品被看見。

County Magistrate Yao says that the the people’s needs matter most when it comes to governance “Therefore, we must first urgently solve the medical and transportation issues in the county. This year, we introduced medical resources into remote villages and the outlying islands. The county government also strove to expand human resources in hospitals, such as surgery specialists, plastic surgery and other resources. Mackay Memorial Hospital and Taitung Christian Hospital passed the severe emergency hospital and emergency intermediate-level ability assessments,” she adds. “In terms of transportation, we focused our efforts on the integrating the whole county. In April the rollout of new buses and taxi buses in Daren Township and Yanping Township went smoothly, whilst solving transportation problems for those living in rural areas. In addition, buses were also rolled out in Donghe and Jinfeng to make up for places where previous buses did not reach.” While solving the transportation problems of Taitung County, Magistrate Yao has shifted more focus onto opening up marketing and sales opportunities for agricultural products the county. Recently, seventy-two eco-farming products were put on the market through FamilyMart’s online APP store, allowing these products to be seen by a wider audience.

對於未來,饒縣長在會中強調臺東應該要「做自己」,因為臺東擁有天然美景與醇厚的人文特色,和其他城市像是米蘭、東京、上海一樣,擁有足夠條件超越國家成為世界城市。因此饒縣長期盼發展臺東「一慢一快」,慢是臺東專屬的生活態度,「臺東慢食節」至今已發展出品牌特色,未來再搭配部落美食與旅遊,行銷臺東城市魅力,吸引更多旅客前來體驗或實際移居來台東,體驗並找回自己的慢生活;二是快,饒縣長期盼善用科技協助解決產業困境,並儘快促成花東及南迴鐵路雙軌暨電氣化,完善臺灣鐵路網,讓臺東對外交通更便捷。

As for the future, Magistrate Yao emphasizes that Taitung should remain authentic to itself, because it boasts natural beauty and a rich, unique culture. Just like Milan, Tokyo or Shanghai, Taitung has the potential to become a world-class city. Therefore, Yao has been looking forward to promoting the “slow and fast” image of Taitung. “Slow” refers to the slow pace of living in Taitung. For example, the Taitung Slow Food Festival has developed their own brand in bringing together tribal delicacies and travel. This is in order to market the charm of Taitung, and to attract more visitors and immigrants to come experience it for themselves and to bring back their own sense of a slow-pace lifestyle.On the other hand, “fast” refers to technological advancements to assist in solving industry development in Taitung. Yao cited the electrification of the Huadong and South-Line railways tracks as an example. This project will not only complete Taiwan’s railway network, but also provide convenience for travelers in the county.

饒縣長最後與縣府局處長以拆禮物的驚喜方式,發表未來七大施政新亮點:地政處啟動區段徵收,推動永續城市新典範;財經處成立綠能辦公室,打造臺東成為低碳城市;交觀處歡慶熱氣球與衝浪10周年,擴大辦理相關活動;原民處行銷部落旅遊,推動部落食尚‧時尚;農業處將慢食結合運動賽事,帶動臺東慢經濟;文化處將舉辦近十年來宜花東首場電音DJ大賽;消防局則落實1鄉鎮1高救隊,以行動急診照護縣民健康。最後饒縣長鼓勵縣府同仁持續以開放自己、局處資源彼此整合、大家共同創新的理念及原則,使臺東朝多元發展的斜槓城市邁進。

Toward the end of the event, Magistrate Yao utilized surprise gifts to county government director-generals to present seven new policy directions of her administration: 1) Land Administration Department: zone expropriation in order to promote a new sustainable model for development 2) Finance and Economic Development Department: establishment of a green energy office to promote Taitung as a low-carbon city 3) Transportation and Tourism Development Department: hosting the tenth Taiwan Hot Air Balloon Festival and Open of Surfing, as well as expansion of other events 4) Indigenous Peoples Department: promotion of tribal travel, food and fashion 5) Agriculture Department: combination of slow food and sports activities to promote a “slow economy” in Taitung 6) Cultural Affairs Department: hosting the first electronic DJ competition in almost ten years 7) Fire Bureau: establishment of SRTP rescue groups to assure safety of residents in Taitung County Magistrate Yao further encouraged her colleagues in the county government to continue to open themselves up to dialogue, integrate resources between each other, and to innovate together in order to allow Taitung to move towards a competitive city with diversified development.
