Brief Report on Kasur Tashi Wangdi la’s Campaign Account

The final account for TW campaign is long overdue.  Kasur Tashi Wangdi la has stressed the importance of going the account details public as soon as the Katri campaign is over.  However due to the different personal schedules of the voluntary campaign workers, this has been delayed to this date.

Better late than never, we are happy to report here our final accounts.  This is not only to suffice Kungo la’s wish but also in line with the general Tibetan mass call for a greater transparency in the public funds.  Since most of the funds were raised from the Tibetan public, we made sure that every penny is accounted.  There was a surplus of $3,377.49 and the same amount is donated to the Education Department of CTA as per Kungo la’s wish.

We would also like to note here that we are most humbled by and grateful to all who have worked on our campaign, contributed and cast your vote in favor of Kungo Tashi Wangdi.  We know your support was not about putting Kungo la in office.  Your support was about saving the Tibetan Democracy and educating the general Tibetan public.  Kungo la and his campaign team will always be grateful for the many wonderful friendships we gained through this campaign.

We, the TW Campaign Team, would also like to thank Kasur Tashi Wangdi la for all the hard work and effort he has taken in this Katri election.  Kungo la has travelled extensively in such a short span of time to give the Tibetan diaspora an opportunity to meet and know him in person!  Kungo la’s lifelong service and contribution to the Tibetan communities are certainly unforgettable.  We are confident that he will continue to inspire and guide us in future.

Last but not least, now that Dr. Lobsang Sangay is our Kalon Tripa, in this same spirit we want to restate our firm support to him.  We look forward to working with him in our struggle against the Communist China.
