The Governor’s statement at Tomsk Region legislative body, the Duma, as part of the 2013 executive branch report. Dear Oxana Vitaliyevna, esteemed deputies and invitees,
I address my today’s executive branch performance report to all residents of Tomsk Region rather than to deputies only. Detailed account of the performance is shown in the report all of you hold in your hands so that you can read it. In my speech, I will touch upon the key points, trying to get you a glimpse of the future rather than relate about the past. I don’t want to put on rose-colored glasses and tell you how super good our life is, but I do not to paint it all black either.
