Singaporean Netizens' Campaign Saved Nomination Failure

Sammyboy.Com & Temasek Review and other forums had successfully raised 5 xS$16K candidates' deposit or Singapore General Election 2011. Making a first in history that all 87 seats will get nomination tomorrow. That also means whole Singapore is going to poll for the first time.

Old Dog Thief's Tanjong Pagar GRC had suffered a failure yesterday when leading candidate Mr. Ng Teck Siong announced he gave up the efforts due to lack of funds. Immediately, I assured him that funds can be raised and he decided to resume his efforts. I used Sammyboy.Com forum to spread out fund raising campaign at:

Within 2 nights and one day, the funds are already in. Candidate Mr. Alec Tok helped greatly in Temasek Review site. Others had used facebook to help. There could be others e.g. TOC.

We did it.

My big Thank You to supporters and the funders.

Previously, the most remembered fund raising was for late JBJ to discharge from bankruptcy to contest the previous GE2006. Today it seems to be a repetition in GE2011, and to help none other than Mr. Ng Teck Siong to contest, Mr. Ng was a partner of late Mr. JBJ and both of them together found today's Reform Party.

I urge supporters wear Red tomorrow at nomination centers. Because LEEgime wears White. We can make the national flag!

Reminders most importantly, I have yet received enough confirmation SMS from Tg Pagar nominators volunteers I am worried.
