TRUE to his campaign promises that his constituents’ interest would always come first, Caloocan City Mayor Along Malapitan has initiated various pro-people, pro-poor programs, the latest of which was the ‘Mobile City Hall’ primarily designed to extend its services in villages beyond the regular business hours.

“With this project, we can be able to extend the city government’s core services beyond the regular business hours especially for those who live in North Caloocan,” he said.

Services that will provide at the mobile city hall include airing of concerns and grievances, medical consultation, anti-rabies vaccination, local tax assessment, job application and registration for senior citizens and solo parents, among others.

The mayor believed that the latest project would bring the government closer to its people as he vowed to further improve the services being offered by the North Caloocan City Hall.

               Financial aids for Navotas residents

The Navotas City government continues to grant financial assistance to poor residents and qualified beneficiaries of its various economic programs despite limited income and funds.

According to Mayor John Rey Tiangco, some 230 solo parents received cash assistance of P2,000 each through ‘Saya All, Angat All Tulong Pinansyal Para sa mga Rehistradong Solo Parents,’ one of the city’s pandemic recovery programs under the Gender and Development Fund.

“We recognize the hardships faced by Navoteño solo parents and we hope to offer them a means to provide for their families even through these challenging times.”

Tiangco, who served as Navotas representative in the 17th Congress, co-authored House Bill 8097 which, together with Senate Bill 1411, was consolidated into Republic Act 11861 or the Expanded Solo Parents Welfare Act.
