President-elect Lee said, "First of all, I feel very honored, and I feel a heavy responsibility. Daejeon is a city with a declining population and young people leaving for jobs, so my heart is heavy with my calling to revitalize Daejeon rather than joy."

He continued, "As promised during the election, we will create high-quality jobs in Daejeon and secure 5 million pyeong of industrial complex to transform Daejeon into a first-class economic city." We will prepare well for the implementation,” he added.

He said, "I want to remain as a mayor who works for the citizens from dawn until late at night," he said.
