PIA Press Release

Feature: Mati mayor goes back to the people after election

By Neela G. Duallo

City of Mati (19 September) -- Three months swiftly passed since her assumption in office, and City of Mati Mayor Michelle Nakpil Rabat is determined to make a difference this time, going back to the people who catapulted her to the position.

And this will happen in her first one hundred days in office.

"I don't want the people to say that we are good only on election. Winning is just the start. You have to prove that you deserve the trust of the people", she said.

In doing consultation with the people, particularly with the rural folks, the lady mayor found out the basic needs of the people.

"It's water, food, education, and health. We have to address their needs in our capacity, and the best way we can", Mayor Rabat explained.

The Chief Executive is happy to note that her work force is doing a good job. But since Mati is expanding with its city status, the city government needs more additional manpower to its work force.

"We need market and garbage collectors, more elements for the CSU (Civil Security Unit), and health workers, particularly midwives", she added.

Moreover, Mayor Rabat is bound to implement a 1 million-peso per barangay assistance to the 26 barangays of the city.

"But this still depends to the decision of the Supreme Court with the petition raised by the League of Cities to the 14 newly-proclaimed cities, including the City of Mati", she explained.

However, Rabat is optimistic that it will be a favorable decision the Supreme Court will render.

"Anyway, the budget for our new IRA as a city is already there, but the Dept. of Budget and Management still have to wait for the Supreme Court's decision", the Mayor reiterated.

She also beamed that there is a visible improvement to the performance of the Mati-PNP, with their morals at its peak.

This is the result with the local government's effort to support the PNP, logistics wise.

Rabat further admitted that as the excitement for the October 29 election escalates, many are already asking for her permission to run in the Sangguniang Kabataan and Barangay election.

"Anybody can run. But 99% of the work and determination has to come from the aspirants. But most importantly, it's the people who will decide", she said. (DXHM-Mati/PIA XI) [top]
