Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 305 – Wen Deguang’s promotion to the Chief of Farm department
Three days after the final exams, Feng Yu drove Wen Dongjun and the other two back to their district.
There were only the 4 of them in the car. Their luggage was handed over to Wind and Rain Logistics. Their trucks will be making a trip to Tai Hua Food Processing Factory tomorrow, and they will be sending their luggage on the way.
When they start High School, they had very little luggage. But after graduation, Feng Yu found that his car could not even carry Li Na’s luggage.
Maybe Feng Yu had bought too many gifts for Li Na.
After sending his friends home, Feng Yu slowly drove back. When he returned home, his mother was cooking in the kitchen.
“You are back. Hurry, go and wash your hands. We will eat after I finish the last dish.”
“Where’s dad? Is he still at the factory? Didn’t we hire someone to manage the factory?” Feng Yu frowned. It was already noon and why was his father still so busy?
“Your father went to your Uncle Wen’s house for a drink. Your Uncle Wen was promoted!”
Uncle Wen promoted? He was just promoted to deputy chief not long ago. How come he was promoted again?
He was promoted to the Chief of the farm department? Wasn’t this too fast?
“Mum, is Uncle Wen going to be the Chief of the Farm department?” Feng Yu had an unbelievable look on his face. Was this considered the legendary high-flier?
From his progression, Uncle Wen should be retiring with a high rank. Who would believe this would happen in the past?
“Yes. It was announced this morning, and your Uncle Wen had just returned from his office. He immediately asked your father over for a drink to celebrate. Your father has a lot to do with his promotion.” Zhang Muhua said proudly.
The Feng family had made a lot of investments in the district, and their factories were developing very fast. Their process food factory and Tai Peng pig farm were featured many times on the provincial TV news.
During every interview, when the reporters asked Feng Xingtai about his secret to his success, he would say that it was because he got the help of the Chief and Deputy Chief Wen of the Farm Department, and the hard work of all the workers.
If it was once or twice, it was still okay. But it was a few dozen times. Even the higher-ups also noticed this.
The Chief was already due for his promotion. He was promoted straight to the position of a county Mayor. When the country’s Party committee secretary retires in 2 years’ time, he would be taking over that position.
The Chief knew that his promotion was because of the relationship between Wen Deguang and Feng Xingtai. He had the credit for the district’s development. After all, the food processing factory and the pig farm were set up during his term as the chief of the farm department. In the future, whenever people talk about these two companies, he would be mentioned.
Who can continue to have good relationships with the Feng family? Other than Wen Deguang, there was no one else! At first, there were other experienced Deputy Chiefs that tried to use their connections to get this position. But soon, they stopped. Even the Provincial Farm Department head had praised Wen Deguang for his performance.
They were bitter about this. Wen Deguang was always smiling and looking harmless. But they never expected that he had connections with the Provincial Department head.
Their head had already spoken and who would dare to vie for the position of Chief? They can only remain as Deputies and carry on with their duties. They still have the chance after Wen Deguang was promoted again and transferred out.
The head of the Provincial Farm Department had already noticed Wen Deguang, and his next promotion should be fast too. With the speed of his promotion, he should be promoted again within the next 3 years. The deputies can still afford to wait.
Even if Wen Deguang were not promoted, with the district development speed, they would also get some credit. They can always apply for transfer to other districts. They might even be transferred to the County’s department.
There was only about 20,000 population in the district. But in a county, the population was a few hundred thousand. With more people and a more significant area, they will have more authority. The Deputies had straightened out their thoughts and decided to focus on their work to build up more credentials. They would wait for any vacancies at the County and request for a transfer.
Wen Deguang was also surprised by his promotion. Although he knew that he would eventually become the Chief of the District Farm Department, he never expects it to be so soon. Furthermore, he would be taking over the role of the District’s Party Committee Secretary in two years’ time.
Feng Yu rubbed his chin, thinking about Wen Deguang’s promotion. The Provincial leaders really think highly of him? Wen Deguang should not have been to the Provincial government office before. The furthest he went was the City Government.
This means that someone had spoken to the leaders at the Provincial Farm Department. Who was this person? Could it be Zhang Han’s father?
Feng Yu felt that this possibility was not high!
Zhang Han’s father was also a leader in the Provincial Government. It was already a blessing he did not stop his daughter was dating with Wen Dongjun. He should not be helping Wen Dongjun’s father.
Was it Zhang Ruiqiang? Feng Yu had mentioned Wen Deguang a few times, and he remembered? Zhang Ruiqiang was transferred to the City from the Provincial Government. He should know the leaders of the Provincial Farm Department. But it doesn’t seem right.
If it were Zhang Ruiqiang, he would surely tell Feng Yu. Someone had done him a favor secretly, what was this person’s motive?
Feng Yu wants Wen Deguang to be the Chief of the District’s Farm Department. That was because Uncle Wen would never cheat his family. If it was another person, he might make things difficult for his family.
Tai Hua Food Processing Factory and Tian Peng Pig farm were making a lot of money. Last year, some people asked Feng Xingtai to fund the repairs for the roads leading to the farm. There were even people who requested Feng Xingtai to renovate the Farm Department’s office.
Those people act as if they own the money earned by Feng Xingtai. No, it was not the same. These people will never take out money from their own pockets to do these.
Of course, all these suggestions were stopped by Wen Deguang. Feng Xingtai had already donated to the schools in the district and had helped the Farm Department saved lots of money. Repairing the roads still made senses, but renovating the offices? You think the Feng family are stupid?
Feng Xingtai was not happy too. What he donated to the schools was to let the future generations to remember and have honor for his family. Renovating the offices for the leaders? Even without renovating, all the leaders at the district knew him.
Feng Yu supported his father on this matter. He even encouraged his father to blow up this matter. These people dare to try and take advantage of his family!
Now, Wen Deguang was promoted to the Chief and that person who wanted Feng Xingtai to renovate their offices was transferred to other places. He became a small supervisor in charge of filing. He was not even 50 years’ old and was assigned to these types of backend role! His future chances of promotion had become very slim.
“Mum, I had bought 2 dresses for you. See if you like it.”
Zhang Muhua smiled: “I like it as long as it is bought by you. Next time doesn’t waste money.”
The mother and son sat down for lunch and chatted about the minor things that had happened in the district.
