Mayoral aspirant wants public hospital, college in Arayat

VICE Mayor Sixto Mallari sought to alleviate poverty and maintain peace and order in Arayat town by providing accessible and quality education and healthcare services to its people.

Mallari said if he gets elected, he would invest in the construction of public hospital and college institution to provide long-term development for his townmates.

In particular, the first-termer vice mayor said he plans to open an extension campus of Don Honorio Ventura State University in the town in his first year as mayor.

"Kung makakapag-aral sila at makakapagtapos, mas maraming opportunities ang pwede sa kanila. Ibig sabihin kapag nakapagtrabaho sila, ang return of investment ay magbabayad sila ng mas malaking tax na magagamit para sa mas maraming proyekto," he said.

He added that if education is free, it will relieve parents from financial burden and can allocate their finances to other essentials.

Meanwhile, Mallari said that in his second year, he will construct a community hospital that will ensure the health and wellness of Arayateños.

"Nagawa ito sa Candaba at Mexico na same status ng Arayat which is first class municipality, why not here in our town," he said.

He said if education and healthcare service -- which are among the most basic needs -- are free and accessible, residents will be eased of the financial burden.

"Kung nagtatrabaho ang gobyerno, giginhawa ang buhay ng tao. Kung maginhawa ang buhay ng tao, mamaintain ang peace and order. Kapag okay ang peace and order, darating ang mga investors at kapag may investors, may trabaho para sa Arayateño," Mallari said.

He added: "Kung may trabaho na dito sa Arayat, hindi na kailangan lumayo ng mga kababayan ko at ang tax na babayaran nila sa lahat ng transaksyon nila sa labas, dito nalang iikot sa bayan namin. Ito po anv return of investment na pangmatagalan."

Mallari said all his planned priority projects can be funded through the 20 percent development fund of the local government.
