We care about courtesy, peace, and neighborhood culture, we find the functioning here very valuable. This is also one of the characteristics that are already available in Fatih, I hope we will be in a mutual relationship that will contribute to it”.

The primary result that I want to achieve from these meetings is that I hope we will perform studies to determine the road map and priorities of our district through them. We immediately intervene in the troubled places related to the sidewalks, that are a chronic problem of the district, and we have started to expand the sidewalks in some areas. Sidewalks are primarily the right of people, in other words, the right of the elderly, women and children living here”.
