KANIGARAN – Di tengah kesibukannya, Senin (7/01), Wali Kota Probolinggo Rukmini sambang ke basecamp jurnalis Kota Probolinggo. Ia memenuhi janjinya kepada para jurnalis yang disampaikan saat Media Gathering di Surabaya, Desember lalu. Yakni berkunjung sekaligus makan siang bareng.

“Kami ingin Bu Wali tahu, dari sinilah, dari tempat inilah, kami para jurnalis ini menghasilkan karya-karya jurnalistik tentang Probolinggo,” ujar Farid Fahlevi, jurnalis Jawapos TV (JTV).

Basecamp yang dimaksud adalah sebuah warung makan atau biasa dikenal warung rawonan di Jalan Dr Saleh, Kota Probolinggo. Ya, sudah sekitar 10 tahun terakhir, para jurnalis baik cetak atau elektronik bermarkas di warung ini. Tempatnya memang sangat sederhana dan bisa dibilang agak memprihatinkan.

Siang itu, Wali Kota Rukmini didampingi Asisten Pemerintahan Gogol Sudjarwo, Asisten Ekonomi dan Pembangunan Ahmad Sudiyanto; Kabag Humas dan Protokol Mardi Prihatini serta sejumlah kepala Organisasi Perangkat Daerah (OPD).

Ikhsan Mahmudi, jurnalis senior menjelaskan kondisi markas para jurnalis tersebut. Pasalnya, sebenarnya oleh Pemkab Probolinggo sudah disediakan press room yang jadi satu kompleks dengan Museum Probolinggo.

“Alhamdulillah bisa bersilaturahmi dengan kondisi tempat pertemuan yg sangat merakyat dan natural. Terima kasih teman-teman jurnalis atas kerjasama dengan kami selama ini,” ujar Rukmini. Di warung itu, wali kota nampak gayeng ngobrol bareng para jurnalis yang mayoritas berwilayah liputan di Kota Probolinggo itu.

Saat ditanya apa yang akan dilakukan setelah tidak menjabat wali kota, Rukmini menjawab diplomatis sebagai seorang politisi. “Ke depan, harus menatap optimistis dan realistis. Ada semangat, ada kekuatan, soal usia itu, nomor lima (bukan prioritas). Sekarang saya beristirahat lima tahun, setelah itu bisa gak nyalon lagi? Pokoke gak pikun ya. Harus punya pemikiran yang bagus namanya juga orang politik,” jawab Rukmini sambil tersenyum.

Wali kota berharap, kepemimpinan mendatang hampir sama dengan pemerintahannya. Bisa mengadopsi program kegiatan yang tidak jauh berbeda.

“Semua program memang dari OPD yang menyusun, untuk selanjutnya (kepemimpinan berikutnya) adalah hak preogratif. Saran saya tetap memperhatikan musrenbang,” katanya. (famydecta/humas)

 

Amid her busy schedule, Probolinggo Mayor Rukmini visited the base camp of Probolinggo City journalist on Monday (7/01. She fulfilled her promise to the journalists during Media Gathering in Surabaya, last December. The visit was made in a simple activity by having lunch together.

“We want the mayor to know that from here, from this place, we journalists produce journalistic works telling about Probolinggo city,” said Farid Fahlevi, Jawapos TV (JTV) journalist.

The basecamp is a food stall or commonly known as ‘warung rawonan’, located on Jalan Dr Saleh, Kota Probolinggo. It’s been around the past 10 years, both printed and electronic journalists used this stall as a basecamp. The place is indeed very simple.

That afternoon, Mayor Rukmini was accompanied by Assistant for Government-Affairs Gogol Sudjarwo, Assistant for Economics and Development Ahmad Sudiyanto; Head of Public Relations and Protocol Department Mardi Prihatini and several heads of Regional Working Units (OPD).

Ikhsan Mahmudi, a senior journalist in the city explained the condition of the basecamp. He told that the Probolinggo Regency Government has provided a press room which is located next to Probolinggo Museum.

“Alhamdulillah, Thank God, I can stay in touch with the journalist at a place which is very simple and natural. Thank you, my friends journalists, for your collaboration with us so far,” said Rukmini. At the stall, the mayor seemed to be having a nice conversation with the journalists who mostly work in the area of Probolinggo City.

When asked what to do after having resigned as a mayor, Rukmini answered diplomatically as a politician. “Going forward, you must look optimistically and realistically. There is enthusiasm, there is a strength, and age is not a priority. Now I would take a rest for five years, after that, can I be a candidate again for the mayor? We should have to have a good idea, that’s what politician has to have,” Rukmini answered, smiling.

 The mayor hopes, the future leadership would have the same method as her. She hopes that the next mayor can adopt an activity program that is not much different.

“All programs are indeed from the regional working units; then it would be the pre-procedural rights of the next mayor. My advice is to pay attention to the development planning forum, Musrenbang,” she said.
