Letter from the Mayor of Jwaya Jawad Roda and Vice-Mayor Ramzi K. Saidi  
(New Letter from New Mayor Mr Sari Taher Fadllalh Coming soon.

Dear Townsmen and Visitors 

Al-Salam Aleykum: 

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our hometown and to this Web site. I hope it will provide some useful information about our town and that it will encourage you to visit and join us in its activities and affairs. 

As you may know, our work at the Municipality has not been an easy task. After decades of Occupation, War, Neglect, & the absence of an elected Municipal Council in Jwaya that stretched between 1973 & until 1998. 

The current elected council began working from scratch. We tried to rehabilitate the infrastructure of the town with a relatively small budget. Despite all of these odds, much has been achieved. Nevertheless, much more remains to be done. 

Our dreams and hopes for the future of Jwaya are boundless. They are perhaps greater than our actual financial capabilities, but we shall persevere in our determination and will continue our endeavors for the benefit of every one. 

We trust that future generations, the younger and highly educated children of Jwaya will carry the banner of progressive, forward-looking, and democratic governance for our hometown. 

Thank you and may the Almighty God, guide us together towards the right path for peace and prosperity to our town and country. 

Jawad Roda                         Ramzi K. Saidi
