“We promised waste-free municipal administration, but blood tax was wasted…”
Seoul’s response… “Mention the input cost from the construction in 2009”
[서울=뉴시스] Correspondent Goh Bum-joon = Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon answers questions from lawmakers at the second hearing of the Special Committee for Government Investigation to find out the truth about the Yongsan Itaewon disaster and prevent a recurrence held at the National Assembly in Yeouido, Seoul on the morning of the 6th. 2023.01.06.

[서울=뉴시스] Reporter Lim Jong-myeong = The Democratic Party of Korea criticized Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon for moving into the official residence in Hannam-dong, Yongsan, Seoul, and criticized the promise of “waste-free municipal administration” as a blatant lie.
In a commentary on the afternoon of the 25th, Ahn Gwi-ryung, a spokesman for the full-time department, pointed out that “Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon will overturn his promise not to use the official residence during his tenure and move into the official residence in Hannam-dong in March.”
“7.5 billion won has already been invested in new construction and remodeling of the public building that Mayor Oh will use. However, after sending out all the resident companies last year for a safety diagnosis, he spent 1 billion won in remodeling,” he said. Are you trying to vent the anger of the citizens who are struggling day by day?” he emphasized.
Deputy spokesman Ahn said, “Mayor Oh’s words, ‘I will lead by example for waste-free municipal administration’, turned out to be a blatant lie.” Answer,” he pinched.
Deputy Spokesperson Ahn said, “Seoul City insists that the mayor’s office is necessary to quickly respond to disaster situations such as the Itaewon disaster.” It’s shameless to find an excuse in the mission for leaving it behind,” he insisted.
“Also, if it is difficult to respond to a disaster just because Mayor Se-Hoon Oh stays in his company’s house, then there is a serious problem with the disaster response system. He also warned that the citizens of Seoul are closely watching the behavior of Mayor Oh Se-hoon, who is moving into a super-luxurious public residence with taxpayers’ money for it under the pretext of the Itaewon disaster.”
However, the Seoul Metropolitan Government said in an explanatory document, “The expression ‘the mayor’s official residence spent 7.5 billion won’ or ‘1 billion won remodeling’ is not true.”
The Seoul Metropolitan Government said, “Since it refers to the total budget invested from the establishment of the Seoul Partners House in 2009 until recently, it is irrelevant to the mayor’s official residence, which uses only a part (3rd floor) of it.” It was decided to use it in early January of this year. The specific construction cost has not been finalized because the design has not yet been completed.”
