Angry residents want new Uruma City to be abolished

Date Posted: 2005-08-27

Uruma City, a city formed in April by merging four smaller communities, appears to be in trouble.

Irate residents say the new city is fraught with problems, and that they’ve already had enough. They charge the new leadership “is only for the union, and only thinking of Uruma City’s life.”

Another says “this new Uruma City is too much too big. Before, our four separate cities and towns were better.”

Uruma City was created by merging Ishikawa, Gushikawa, Katsuren and Yonashro. Residents note the city has more than 86 Assembly members, “too many to organize at all.”

“Let’s go back to the former system,” says a dissenter. “We don’t need a union anymore”. Others are asking why the Assembly members didn’t dissolve, but simply became one big Assembly.

“They should have had to reduce, then make the financial situation better,” was another charge. And still another that “members are staying the same as before. They should quit and we should have a new election.”

Shouzou Chinen, who is representing a group of unhappy Uruma City residents, says “we are going to make a citizens’ campaign to dissolve the Uruma City and go back to form four individual cities.”
