New CM Governor faces up to pollution
and political discord
Chiang Mai has welcomed the new governor, Amornpan Nimanant, who began his work
for the province on March 16.
Chiang Mai-born Amorphan was appointed as the replacement for Wibun
Sa-nguanphong during the recent reshuffle involving 26 provincial governors,
most of whom were transferred to inactive posts. On his first working day, he
met up with his three deputy governors, Pairoj Saengpuwongm, Chumporn Saengmanee
and Chuchart Keerapaeng, plus his own assistant, Surachai Jongrak, in order to
allocate specific responsibilities and discuss long-term strategies.
At the meeting, Amorphan stated that he was studying the pollution problem in
depth. If the present poor air quality continues to rise higher than the
acceptable levels, district chiefs, kamnan, village headmen and public health
volunteers will be called to a special meeting to tackle the problem.
