MANILA, Philippines — Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte has been named as the top performing local chief executive in Metro Manila, based on a survey released yesterday by the RP-Mission and Development Foundation Inc. (RPMD).

Belmonte earned an overall job performance rating of 90 percent.

“She enjoys high regard and popularity due to her creative service delivery methods in Quezon City and leadership style, including creating mini city halls in each of the city’s six districts where government employees can serve the public,” the foundation said.

The other top performing mayors in the National Capital Region were Along Malapitan of Caloocan who scored 78 percent, Jeannie Sandoval of Malabon with 74 percent, Vico Sotto of Pasig City with 72 percent and John Rey Tiangco of Navotas with 70 percent.

The RPMD lauded Malapitan and Tiangco for their projects and social services in their respective cities.

Sandoval, the first female mayor of Malabon, “won the hearts of her constituents as she laid forth her ideas that had gathered traction in the previous months,” the foundation said.

Sotto was recognized for his brand of leadership, good governance and the eradication of corruption.

Belmonte, Malapitan and Sandoval thanked the RPMD for the survey results as well as their constituents for their continued trust.
