First 100 days: Rama’s report to tackle executive, legislative work

Caecent No-ot Magsumbol - The Freeman

CEBU, Philippines —  Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama’s report on his first 100 days in office will tackle both the work done by the executive and the legislative, the City Council.

He said, a day before the speech:

“Dili ko mo-provide ug piecemeal kay I still need to look at the audio-visual… but I am very much aware what we will be getting is more on what I have achieved and the Sanggunian.”

He said it is only right that he includes the Sanggunian’s achievements in his speech because he would not be able to accomplish his goals, so far, without the Council’s support.

“I cannot accomplish it without the Sanggunian headed by Vice-mayor Raymond Alvin Garcia,” Rama said.

The mayor will deliver his report at the Plaza Sugbo on Monday, October 3, 2022.

The city’s public information officer, Cerwin Eviota, told The Freeman that a Mass will be celebrated before a video report is shown, which will be followed by a speech from Rama.

He did not elaborate on the content of the video.

Right after winning the May 9, 2022 elections, Rama expressed his intention to accomplish the remaining items in his 21 “grand salute impact projects” within the first 100 days of his fresh term.

The priority projects he wanted done include paying the city’s loan for the South Road Properties (SRP) fully; curing the joint venture agreement (JVA) on the Carbon Market Redevelopment project; materializing the 93-1 deal between the city and province; lighting streets, lighting more households, asphalting roads, establishing free public Wi-Fi, organizing a traffic summit, and opening two medium-rise buildings (MRBs) for socialized housing.

Not all of these have been achieved, except for the city having paid in full its loan for the SRP project.

Rama is expected to give an update on the other priority projects in his speech.

He is also expected to give an update on the city’s efforts to solve the perennial problem on flooding, the initial implementation of the “Oplan Displina” campaign, the city’s continuing efforts against COVID-19, the implementation of the three-meter easement rule along waterways, and Rama’s ‘investment begging’ efforts.

The mayor may also give an update on the anticipated changes in the city government’s workforce and structure. — JMO (FREEMAN)
