Tuesday, August 7, 2012
DAVAO City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said Monday that she is now preparing her third State of the City Address (Soca), which she will deliver next month.
It will be Duterte-Carpio's last Soca in her first three-year term as the city's mayor. She has yet to decide if she will seek reelection in 2013's midterm elections.
Speaking in her Monday press briefing at her office, Duterte-Carpio told reporters that she has already made an initial list of her accomplishments that will be highlighted in her Soca.
She said her Soca is in line with the instruction of the Department of Interior and Local Government that all the city and municipal mayors should come up with their respective local government performance report.
She said whatever she will include in that report will also be the content of her speech.
The mayor said the performance report will contain a collection of all the activities and achievements of the city for the past year.
"Kung unsa tong mga nabuhat namo sa niaging tuig, mao ra pud to ang akong hisgutan (I will discuss tackle in mys Sona what we have achieved in tha past year)," Duterte-Carpio said.
Initially, the mayor said, she will highlight in her Soca the important achievements of some of the departments of the City Government, including the City Health Office, City Tourism and Investment Promotions Office, and Davao City Overland Transport Terminal (DCOTT), among others.
The mayor also said she will make public updates of the prime projects implemented during the first two years of her administration, including the rehabilitation of the some city-owned enterprises like the Wireless Cemetery, the DCOTT, among others.
