By Jason Pan / Staff reporterSeveral motorcycle industry groups and labor organizations in central Taiwan yesterday threw their support behind President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) as she hit the campaign trail for the presidential and legislative elections on Jan. 11. Tsai of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) donned a motorcycle helmet bearing a Taiwan logo and gave the thumbs-up alongside her supporters from the motorcycle manufacturing industry. Her father used to own an auto repair shop, “so I have a special connection with mechanics and people working in the motorcycle and auto repair industries,” Tsai said. “My father was like most of you here, who are working as mechanics or are owners of motorcycle or auto repair shops. Tsai also attended a rally organized by labor groups in Taichung, where she was joined by Minister of Labor Hsu Ming-chun (許銘春), Minister of Transportation and Communications Lin Chia-lung (林佳龍) and Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan (蘇嘉全).
