However, we initiated and completed 15 projects that were not included in our election promises. We have ensured a safe life in Izmir with what we have done. We have initiated infrastructure moves on a scale that has never been done before. We brought an end to the odor problem and pollution in Izmir Bay with the Living Gulf Mobilization. We declared war on drought and poverty in Izmir Agriculture. We protected the abundance of our city, the sweat of our producers, and the hopes of our youth. I didn't do any of this alone. We succeeded together with 4 and a half million people of Izmir. We will continue to work towards our goal of leaving Izmir a stronger, more resilient and more livable future. We are very happy to serve Izmir and make it a more beautiful city. Izmir is us.”
