Former Tagaytay mayor Francis Tolentino, in his Abante column, lauded Metro Manila mayors for immediately coming to the aid of Albay local government units (LGU) affected by the Mayon Volcano eruption.

The Cavite politiko said Metro Manila mayors have either already given financial assistance or pledged to do so for his “Adopt a Municipality Program.”

“Noong nakaraang linggo, ang pamahalaang-siyudad ng Marikina at Parañaque ay nag-abot sa MMDA ng tse­keng nagkakahalaga ng P500,000.00 bawat isa, para sa mga apek­tado ng krisis sa Alba,” Tolentino said.

“Ang Malabon City naman ay nagbigay ng P1,000,000.00 samantalang ang Pasay City naman ay mag-aabot din ng P500,000.00. Ang mga sumusunod na financial assistance naman ay direktang ibi­nigay sa probinsya ng Albay: P1,000,000.00 para sa probinsya ng Albay mula sa San Juan City; P1,000,000.00 para sa Legazpi City mula Mandaluyong City; P500,000.00 mula sa Navotas City para sa Munisipyo ng Guinobatan; P300,000.00 mula sa Muntinlupa City para sa probinsya ng Albay; at P500,000.00 mula sa Las Piñas,” he added.

Tolentino also said the Manila and Pasay have promised to give P500,000 and P400,000 respectively.

“Ang aking mabuting kaibigan na si Mayor Herbert Bautista ng Quezon City ay nangako ring magbibigay ng P1,000,000.00 sa bawat isa sa siyam na pinakaapektadong LGU sa Albay,” he said.#
