ILOILO City Mayor Jerry Treñas placed sixth in top performing city mayors in the country outside National Capital Region (NCR).
Treñas received 68 percent in terms of job approval rating of city mayors/per regional center based on an independent and non-commissioned current survey conducted by RP-Mission and Development Foundation Inc. (RPMDinc) June 20-25.
“In every region, the city mayors of each capital in area have been assessed by their constituents when it comes to their overall job performances or achievements. We chose the regional centers to gather a significant data for analysis. We are hoping that this will give our public servants a good insight on how they are doing with their constituents,” said Dr. Paul Martinez of RPMDinc in a statement.
“For city mayors outside NCR, 13 were rated high job approval ratings while three rated below 50 percent,” he added.
They are Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio of Davao Region with 93 percent, Calamba City Mayor Justin Marc Chipeco of Calabarzon with 82 percent, Calapan City Mayor Arman Panaligan of Mimaropa-Southwestern Tagalog Region with 77 percent, Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno of Northern Mindanao, and Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong of Cordillera Administrative Region with 71 percent, placing first to fifth, respectively.
“The pandemic has increased the liabilities in the society wherein more appropriate drives and course of action needs to be instigated by our leaders to be effective assistance to more constituents. Not just the regular traditional engagement but highly effectual and well-organized efforts to help more Filipinos,” RPMDinc noted.
The objective of this independent analysis is to disclose the citizens current opinion as well as assessment of the official’s performance in terms of several important factors that is relevant to their obligations to the society, stated RPMDinc.
This initiative commenced to aid officials to bring forth better programs and policies that will uplift more Filipinos in their current state of living, it added.
