MANILA, Philippines - Taguig City Mayor Ma. Laarni “Lani” Lopez-Cayetano this afternoon filed her certificate of candidacy with the Commission on Elections (Comelec) and formalized her bid for re-election.
Cayetano said that in seeking another term as city mayor, she would continue the implementation of projects that focus on education, peace and order, health care and infrastructure. She was accompanied in the filing of her COC by her running-mate, Ricardo Cruz, a barangay captain of barangay Lower Bicutan who also filed his COC.
Cayetano said peace and order would be a key concern of her second term saying that it is not just a concern for Taguig, but of the entire Metro Manila as well.
“Program for peace and order, that’s the number one. It’s not just the problem of the city of Taguig but of the entire Metro Manila and the whole Philippines. So I guess we’ll intensify our effort regarding peace and order and at the same time much improved medical and other social services,” she said.
