WHAT has the City Government of Lapu-Lapu done over the past 12 months?
Mayor Paz Radaza, who has announced she will seek reelection next year, will report to her constituents tomorrow, less than a year before her second term ends.
About 7,000 people are expected to listen to her State of the City Address (Soca) in Hoopsdome at 9 a.m.
“This is purely reporting on what we’ve done. I will also acknowledge our partners. Ug naa say pasumbingay (and there’ll be hints of) what to expect,” the official said in her regular news conference yesterday.
Radaza, who will run next year under the ruling Liberal Party, said she will continue the programs she started in education, health, infrastructure and livelihood, among others.
“Ato lang gyud ipadayon (We will just continue what we’ve started),” she said.
Different sectors have been invited to her Soca tomorrow, Radaza said, among them business owners, barangay officials and persons with disabilities.
Radaza said she will wear the Filipiniana dress she donned during the last State of the Nation Address of President Benigno Aquino III at the House of the Representatives last July 27.
In her past Soca speeches, the mayor reported increases in the City’s income, better roads and more classrooms, among others.
Last year, Radaza said the city’s economic activities increased with over 11,000 registered businesses.
She welcomed multi-billion investments, such as the 16-hectare Mactan Newtown by the Megaworld Corp. and the second terminal building of the Mactan Cebu International Airport.
One of the initiatives the City has been busy with in the past 12 months is the new branding.
In July last year, the City launched its new identity as the Historic Resort City in an effort to boost its tourism industry.
