Donation daw? Montalban mayor says no public funds used in motorcycle giveaways to SK chairmen

No public funds were used in the distribution of NMAX motorcycles to the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) chairmen of Montalban, Rizal, mayor Tom Hernandez said.

The mayor issued the statement after receiving fierce backlash from his constituents after supposedly giving away motorcycles to SK chairmen in the town amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

In his explanation shared on Facebook, Hernandez said that NMAX was not purchased using the town’s funds but was donated by a certain group he identified as “A Riders”.

The politiko claimed that his government will never allocate funds for such program especially during this time of pandemic.

“Pagbibigay diin na hindi sa pondo ng Lokal na Pamahaalan ang pinagkunan ng pambili ng mga motor at hinding hindi po tayo sa panahon ngayon ng pandemya maglalaan para sa nasabing mga sasakyan dahil batid natin ang mga prayoridad ng ating lokal na pamahaalan at ng Bayan higit ang sa Pang-Kalusugan partikular ang BAKUNA sa COVID-19,”Hernandez said.

According to Hernandez, the NMAX motorcycles will be used in the programs laid out by the SK leaders, which include the “Stroll Kame” project where many projects are laid out such as “Project Karungunan para sa Kabataan amidst COVID-19 Pandemya”, Project KKK: Kabataan para sa Kalikasan para sa Kinabukasan, Project Kabataan para sa Kultura ng Bayan, Drafting the History of Montalban, Economics for Youth during the Pandemic, and many more.
