    Hsinchu City Mayor Lin Chih-chien renews case for a greater Hsinchu (2021/09/14)

    Taiwan has six special municipalities. The mayor of Hsinchu City wants a seventh. In an interview earlier this month, Mayor Lin Chih-chien called for merging Hsinchu City and Hsinchu County, to form a larger administrative area with pooled financial resources. The mayor made his case again on Tuesday, during a visit of Taiwan’s president to his city.

    President Tsai Ing-wen made an inspection tour on Tuesday, of the new preschool campus of Hsinchu Waldorf Experimental School. The city’s mayor led the tour, briefing Tsai on the school’s philosophy and his education policies. The campus spans two administrative regions: Hsinchu City and Hsinchu County. Once again, Hsinchu City Mayor Lin Chih-chien advocated for merging the two regions.

    Hsinchu mayor
    Many city and county residents are very supportive of a merger. I also hope that through merging the city and the county, after upgrading to a special municipality, we can plan out education, transport, environmental, and urban development policies in a more comprehensive and efficient manner. We’re hoping for a “unification of powers,” an expansion of our financial resources.

    Tsai Ing-wen
    President
    This is indeed a major issue pertaining to national development planning. Besides considering public opinion, we’ll need to consider the law and other factors. All of it must be carefully and rigorously discussed.

    Tsai said that when considering a merger, both public opinion and the law must be taken into account. At present, the populations of Hsinchu City and Hsinchu County have not reached the legal requirement for a merger. In addition, the KMT has objected to the proposal, saying that if the two regions were merged, it would allow Lin, a two-term mayor, to seek another two terms.

    Chen Yu-jen
    KMT lawmaker
    If you want to openly claim that this for the public good, that yes, this is for Hsinchu City, this is for Hsinchu County, this is for the good of greater Hsinchu, and that’s why we want a merger…if you want to say that, then you should also come out and say you will not run for another term as mayor of the merged region.

    Lin Chih-chien
    Hsinchu mayor
    This merger plan is tailor-made for Hsinchu Science Park. If Hsinchu is upgraded to a special municipality, anybody with the will and the desire to serve would be eligible to participate in the election.

    Pushing back at Hsinchu’s mayor, the KMT said that any talk of a merger was a product of political calculations. One KMT lawmaker argued that if there had to be a seventh special municipality, it should be one comprising Hsinchu City, Hsinchu County, and Miaoli.

    Lin Szu-ming
    KMT lawmaker
    The industrial chain of Hsinchu Science Park spans Hsinchu City, Hsinchu County, and Miaoli County. These three regions make up a high-tech industrial chain. So if we merged Hsinchu City, Hsinchu County, and Miaoli County, we could build a so-called “Northern Taiwan technology corridor.”

    To merge or not to merge, and should Miaoli also be merged? Those are the questions set to shape the elections in the runup to 2022.

    小英視察新竹 談"合併"須考量民意與法制

    新竹市長林智堅拋出大新竹計畫,引發熱議,總統蔡英文今天前往新竹視察,和林智堅同台,林智堅把握機會,再提竹竹合併升格,總統當場回應,必須考慮民意的反應,和法制面的配套。

    總統蔡英文來到新竹華德福實驗幼兒園視察,新竹市長林智堅親自導覽簡報,大談教育理念與政績。由於校區正好橫跨新竹縣市,林智堅把握機會,再提竹竹合併升格。

    [[新竹市長 林智堅]]
    “很多的市民縣民也都相當支持,我也希望藉由縣市的合併,升格為直轄市之後,不論是在教育上,交通上,環境上,都市發展上,都能夠有一個更有效率的整體的規劃,讓事權統一,讓財政資源更豐沛”

    [[總統 蔡英文]]
    “這個確實是攸關國家整體規劃的重大議題,我們除了要考慮民意的反應之外,我們在法制面的配套措施,還有其他的因素的考量,都必須有審慎嚴謹的討論”

    總統強調,要兼顧民意和法制,因為新竹縣市人口不足升格門檻,藍營更是猛轟,若修法升格是為兩任屆滿的林智堅找出路。

    [[立委(國) 陳玉珍]]
    “如果公開呼籲說,好,為了新竹市好,為了新竹縣,為了大新竹好,就是要合併,(林智堅)你應該率先站出來說,你也不會參選下一任合併後的大市長”

    [[新竹市長 林智堅]]
    “我們是為了竹科產業量身訂做,大新竹真的能合併升格為直轄市,只要有意願,想來服務的人,都有資格參選”

    不管林智堅怎麼說,大新竹合併議題,藍營認為充滿政治算計,甚至提出如果大新竹真的成了第七都,北台灣只剩苗栗不是直轄市,不如竹竹苗一起併。

    [[立委(國) 林思銘]]
    “竹竹苗現在在竹科產業鏈裡面,也是形成科技產業鏈,所以竹竹苗合併,我們認為可以打造,我們北台灣科技走廊的區域”

    大新竹合併與否,或是竹竹苗合併,牽動2022,讓選戰溫度瞬間竄升。
