Slow start to Governor’s email hotline

PHUKET: Governor Pongpayome Vasaputi’s entry into cyberspace at the beginning of the month has so far received a lackluster response. “We receive only one or two emails a day,” the Governor’s secretary, Boonchai Somjai, told the Gazette. Every morning, K. Boonchai checks the email and then prints copies of relevant messages for the Governor’s in-tray. About 70% of the email come from Thais, said K. Boonchai, with the rest coming from foreigners. “Most of them are complaints or suggestions about drug dealing, noisy karaoke bars, camps housing illegal laborers, and so on,” he added. Problems and suggestions that are brought to the Governor’s attention – either by email or through the conventional post – are relayed to the appropriate government departments for their action. Email may be sent to the Governor at or to the Governor’s Office at
