THE RIGHT PERSON FOR MILTON
Zee's openness and approach to problem solving is praised even by his critics. He's not afraid to challenge the status quo and considers all points of views from a diverse perspective before arriving at a conclusion. Unlike other politicians, he openly shares his views, even on controversial topics, out of his belief that people must know where their political leaders stand on all issues.
His curiosity and the ability to go really deep in breaking down complex problems has helped him build a huge following online and offline. Often he is able to find simple solutions by involving consultations into the thinking process.
Zee believes in the power of partnerships, consultation and bold leadership. The more we understand difficult problems from all angles, the better we are able to uncover solutions that work for everyone.
