MANILA Mayor and Aksyon Demokratiko presidential bet Isko Moreno said he is fortunate to have a ‘battle-tested’ vice mayor in the person of Honey Lacuna and assured Manilans that she is more than ready for the job of the next city mayor.

Speaking at the sidelines of the distribution of financial assistance to 197 families who lost their homes to a recent fire that hit a barangay in Sagrada Familia in San Andres, Moreno said that even if he carries out his listening tour in areas outside of Manila from time to time, his work at City Hall continues 24/7.

“Basta dito sa Maynila, tayo ay walang tulugan. Tsaka magaling ako, masuwerte ako sa vice mayor eh. ‘Yung Vice Mayor ko, battle-tested. Si Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna,” Moreno said.

The mayor also stressed that Lacuna “really knows the job as theVice Mayor of Manila and I think, may awa ang Diyos, maging ang pagiging mayor na rin ng Maynila, sa kaloob ng Diyos at ng mga taga-Maynila.” Lacuna is running for mayor to succeed Moreno, with Congressman and House Deputy Majority Leader Yul Servo as her vice mayoral candidate.

Moreno said Lacuna will continue all the pro-people programs that were begun since they both assumed the top two posts in the city

According to him, there is no one else who can ably continue everything that his administration had started other than Lacuna.

“She will continue to build more housing, more hospitals, more schools and ‘yung mga ayuda ng Manilenyo, ‘yung allowances ng senior ko, PWDs, solo parents, K to 12 students at mga nasa kolehiyo,” Moreno assured.
