An hour with the Mayor

E-mail Print PDF

CEBU CITY, Philippines - Straight and direct to the point, Mayor Michael Rama addressed various questions from the media during the “Interactive Forum with Media Leaders” organized by this city’s Public Information Office held last April 16, 2015 Thursday at the Social Hall in Cebu City Hall.


Asked for his plans in 2016, Rama pointed out that he is seeking for re-election as the City Mayor of Cebu for his third term and that his running-mate will be incumbent Vice Mayor Edgardo Labella to continue the framework of governance that they have started which is to make the South Road Property Pretty, Downtown Revitalized, Coastal Barangays Beautiful, Uptown Progressive and Upland balanced between Environment and Development.


“Good governance requires good citizenship, we must have people to be morally upright and driven to make things happen, to make the lives of the poor become better, middle class comfortable and the rich not to control,” Rama enthuses.

With the issue involving the Cebu City Medical Center, the People’s Mayor assured that the new People’s Hospital will soon rise observing utmost transparency and accountability with its legal procedures abiding on the rule of law. He reminded everyone that he never intends to sell nor close the hospital and that with his two decades as public servant he has no issue of graft and corruption.

“Only the People of Cebu City who voted for me can kick me out from the Cebu City Hall, over my dead body I will fight,” the city’s chief executive firmly stated when asked for the possibility of facing suspension over the Twenty thousand Christmas bonus for Cebu City Government employees given last December 2013.

The mayor revealed that he only proposed P10,000 for each employees as Christmas bonus but it was the City Council who added another P10,000 to make it P20,000 which was approved by the members of the City Council. Initially, the city officials were facing charges at the Department of Interior and Local Government for this issue but later the mayor was singled-out.

Rama spent an hour in facing and entertaining the questions from various leaders in the local media who flocked to the Cebu City Social Hall. The “Interactive Forum with Media Leaders” is conducted quarterly. (Cebu City Public Information Office PIO/Greggy Jiggs P. Senados)
