greetings from Toshiko Abe
I want to thank you for visiting my website.
I am a new member of the House of Representatives (lower house) in the Diet. I was elected to my seat after the general election of September 11, 2005 and I am a member of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) from the Chugoku block of the proportional-representation constituency.
It is an honor and a privilege to be able to serve the people of my district, the third electoral district of Okayama, as well as serving the concerns of our country.
With an extensive background in nursing, teaching and the Japan Nursing Association,
I am qualified to work on programs to effect a positive change in the healthcare of my district, prefecture and Japan. I am equipped to reform the programs and the services for the elderly, the ill, the hospitalized, the handicapped and the young. My goal is to better the quality of life for all my fellow citizens.
We must all realize that the present state of healthcare is in disarray and requires strong financial oversight to insure a brighter future for all citizens.
Another area that is close to my heart is restoring the local vitality of our forestry resources, our fishing resources and our agricultural resources which will make the nation stronger and less dependent on foreign products. Naturally, I have deep concerns of protecting the environment for ourselves and our future.
We need to develop and create new jobs so that the citizens in rural areas will continue to re-engerize and re-invigoriate the local economy, thus adding stability & vitality for our community.
Our children are our most precious asset, and I will do everything in my power to ensure they receive proper healthcare and improved educational resources to maintain a strong and literate country for our future.
Because of you, the voter, I am in office---but I need your help.
Now, we all must work together, to make our community a better place to live, to work, and to play. This is my sincere hope, this is my mission, and this is my commitment to you.
With best wishes,
Hon. Toshiko Abe, Phd.
