Dear People of Bodrum,
We embarked on our mission on April 1, 2019, with a celebration of democracy and by gaining the warm trust of the people of Bodrum. We believe in the spirit of teamwork and participatory democracy. Embracing the concept of 'We know together' rather than 'I know,' we set out to govern Bodrum with courage, determination, fairness and a spirit of sharing. Along this path, transparency, accountability, pluralistic and democratic participation in decision-making processes, the appropriateness of services, effectiveness, and inter-administrative harmony in achieving societal welfare and happiness shall be paramount for us.
For the benefit of the people of Bodrum, we have promised to maintain harmony on all fronts. Our goal is to ensure sustainable development for Bodrum, fostering unity rather than division and promoting a peaceful and inclusive approach. We will base this development not only on a developed commercial and economic life but also on our rich cultural heritages. We understand that municipal governance is a collective effort. Every service we provide shall be carried out in collaboration with our teams and the people of Bodrum. In every decision we make, we shall ensure your voices are heard. We will be a municipality that derives its power from the people, not from capital or specific groups.
We are excited because we know we can fulfill the promises we have made to you. We are aware that true success lies not in being elected to these positions, but in representing these positions rightfully and deservedly. With our ecologically conscious, nature-oriented and socially inclusive municipal approach, we pledge to never neglect the city or the rights of its inhabitants.
Now is the time for Bodrum!
Mayor of Bodrum
