|Candidate No 5 Dr Tsai Yeh-Wei|
In its heyday, Tamsui Port actually had several active wharfs. The map of wharfs of 1885 (above) shows from top left, those belonging to (1) Customs Office, (2) British Consulate, (3) John Dodd & Co, (4) Douglas, Lapraik & Co, (5) Tan Ah-Sun, (6) John Dodd, and (7) the Han civilians.
The Customs Office area was opened for business during the Qing era and continued into the Japanese colonial rule to accommodate steam ships arriving from overseas (and also island-wide inter-port sea transports). It has been off-limits to Tamsui locals/civilians since 1945, occupied by various governmental units that included the navy, coast guard and marines, Keelung Customs Office, even a pocket-sized submarine building group. After 4 years of renovation, this area is now open to the tourists.

Mayor Tsai is now the No 5 senatorial candidate of the New Taipei City Council. When elected, he will no doubt continue to oversee the re-construction of not only Tamsui Township proper but also Ba-Li, San-Zi, and Shi-Men Districts. We look forward to his becoming the voice for the residents of these four major population centers.
Election day: Nov 29, 2014
