MANILA, Philippines — Manila Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna yesterday vowed to continue the projects started by first-termer Mayor Isko Moreno, who is running for president in 2022.

In an interview after Moreno filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) yesterday, Lacuna told Manila residents not to worry as she would continue the city government’s financial assistance to the elderly, persons with disabilities and students if she gets elected.

Manila residents have expressed concern about Moreno leaving city hall after just one term in office as he pursues the presidency.

Moreno has endorsed Lacuna as his successor.

Lacuna, a doctor, said she would improve the city’s health services.

She also promised to build a halfway shelter for street dwellers.

Lacuna will file her COC for mayor tomorrow.

She is running against Manila 1st District Rep. Manny Lopez, son of former mayor Mel Lopez.
