The value of New Taipei City Mayor Eric Chu’s (朱立倫) assets grew by NT$7.5 million (US$251,200) from 2012 to last year, according to the Control Yuan’s latest report on county commissioners and mayors’ asset declarations.

The report, released yesterday, showed that as of November last year, the Chinese Nationalist Party’s (KMT) Chu had NT$97.4 million in savings, securities and 11 plots of land in Taipei, Taoyuan County and Greater Tainan, as well as three homes in Taipei’s Shilin (士林) and Neihu (內湖) districts worth more than NT$100 million.

Chu’s declaration last year showed a NT$7.5 million increase compared with his 2012 declaration.

The mayor’s two minor children, Chu Hsuan-yu (朱宣宇) and Chu Yueh-ai (朱約嬡), each had more than NT$17 million in savings and securities.

Chu Hsuan-yu had NT$6.73 million in savings and almost NT$11 million worth of securities, while Chu Yueh-ai had about the same in securities and NT$6.63 million in savings.

The four members of the Chu family, including his wife, Kao Wan-chien (高婉倩), had combined savings of NT$23.5 million, the report shows.

Taoyuan County Commissioner John Wu (吳志揚), also of the KMT, also appears to have done well from 2012 and 2013.

As of November last year, Wu’s family owned 12 plots of land and 47 homes, mostly in Taoyuan County and some in Taipei.

The properties were registered under the names of Wu, his wife Hung Hsiu-hua (洪秀華) and their three children.

The commissioner also held securities worth NT$21.9 million and had NT$25.6 million in savings.

In 2012, Wu declared savings of NT$17.7 million and securities worth NT$23.9 million. The number of homes and plots of land were the same as last year.
