ELECTED Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano took her oath of office as city chief executive before Taguig Regional Trial Court (RTC) Judge Antonio Olivete at the Senator Rene “Compañero” Cayetano Memorial Science and Technology High School on Thursday in Barangay Ususan.

Aside from Mayor Lani, Vice Mayor Arvin Alit, Taguig-Pateros 1st District Congressman Ricardo “Ading” Alit, 2nd District Congresswoman Maria Amparo “Pammy” Zamora, and 16 city councilors who were all with “Team Lani Cayetano” (TLC) took their oath before Senator Alan Peter Cayetano.

In her speech, Mayor Lani said she is committed to “ensuring peaceful and comfortable lives” for all her constituents and intensifying the local government’s efforts to reach its goal of being a “truly loving and caring” city.

“Tahimik at komportable buhay, yan po mga kababayan ang ating dalangin sa bawat pamilyang Taguigeno. Patuloy tayong kikilos tungo sa pag-abot ng mga pangarap nating ito, ng mga naisin nating ito,” she said in her speech.

Mayor Lani also vowed to continue the projects and programs initiated by her predecessor and brother-in-law, Mayor Lino Cayetano, that provided health security to all their constituents during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“ Magkatuwang nating haharapin bagama’t mapanghamon ang pagsisiguro ng kaligtasan ng mga lansangan, ang tagumpay natin sa mga aspetong ito ang maghahatid ng ibayo pang paglago ng ekonomiya na magbibigay ng trabaho at kabuhayan sa ating nasasakupan,” she added.

The lady city chief executive also urged all Taguig residents to cooperate and “unite” with her administration to expedite its further growth and improvement and vowed to be “transparent and accountable” at all times.

She also took the opportunity to thank her husband, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, whom she said had an unwavering “passion” for good governance and has always been her “guiding light”.

“I’d never seen a public official as fearless as him. Mga kababayan ako po ay testigo, kahit gaano pa ka-kontrobersiyal, kahit gaano pa mapanghamon, nanatili siyang matatag sa kanyang mga prinsipyo lalo na po sa kanyang pananampalataya,” Mayor Lani said.

Mayor Lani assured that she will further engage with the city’s employers and investors by making Taguig a more business-friendly, safer, and more efficient economic ecosystem.
