UPDATE 2: SORSOGON CITY, 30June2013 (BicolToday.com) – In-coming Sorsogon City mayor Sally Lee will take oath of office, Sunday afternoon at Sorsogon Capitol compound together with other elected city and provincial officials, a source said requesting anonymity.
According to the source, Lee will bare her development programs in three (3) years, and constituents will be expecting if Mayor Lee will tackle, or reveal various issues involving the previous administration, like the controversial deals involving the Sorsogon Grand Terminal, Sorsogon Shopping Center, Peter and Paul Corporation and others.
“In-coming Mayor Lee will also focus on various programs such as tourism, health, agriculture that will showcase the potential of the city and the province as well,” the source also said.
When asked if the lady Mayor will be filing suit against former Mayor Leovic Dioneda regarding the alleged anomalies, the source said “let’s hear what will be the statement and action of Madam Lee in her inaugural speech today.”
The source also added, that mayor Lee will focus on the restoration of fiscal stability of the city and restoring public trust, a move as opposed to what had happened in the past years when the city had allegedly spent and wasted people’s money on ‘lipstick style of administering the city’.
The battle cry of in-coming mayor Lee was ‘Serbisyo po na totoo lain pasakit sa tawo (sincere service not hardship to the people)’ referring to the prevailing issues of high city taxes, power subsidy and questionable contracts entered to by the previous administration, the source said.
On the other hand, Isagani, a city street sweeper said “Sana matupad ni Madam Sally ang lahat na ipinangako at mga programa niya noong nakaraang eleksiyon, umaasa kami mabibigyan na kaukulang benipisyo ang maliliit na empleyado ng lungsod.” (I hope Mayor Lee should make true her promises of development programs she has sworn to fulfill during her campaign, and that we,the lowly city employees, expect her to give us more benefits.)
“Mabigyan pansin din niya ang iba pang kawani ng lungsod gaya ng mga basurero, traffic enforcer, street cleaners na siyang araw-araw na nakikita sa kalsada,” the street sweeper said. (She should also give importance to the needs of lowly city employees such as garbage collectors, traffic enforcers, and street cleaners who are always visible on the streets.) [BicolToday.com]
