Kit Nieto takes break from giving gifts to seniors, financially needy. Find out why
Cainta, Rizal mayor Kit Nieto has taken a break from giving gifts and aid to his constituents because the campaign for local positions has started.
In a March 28 Facebook post, Nieto explained that candidates are prohibited committing acts that might be construed as violations of election laws.
“I will not be able to extend monetary assistance sa mga nangangailangan kasi bawal akong mag abot ng tulong sa mga tao.. I will not be able to deliver the usual seniors birthday gifts kasi bawal akong mamigay ng regalo,” he said.
Nieto, who is running for re-election, said he will also not be attending graduation rites. The implementation of local public works projects will likewise be put on hold.
“I will suspend pending infra projects tulad ng pagsesemento ng mga kalye at yung mga for implementation kasi bawal magtrabaho ang kandidato,” he said.
To show how difficult his decision was, the mayor exclaimed: “Di ba pwedeng bukas na ang eleksyon para matapos na itong mga bawal na ito?”
