Incoming San Pedro Mayor Art Mercado learns from best practices of Vico Sotto

May 27, 2022 @ 9:29

In preparation for leading San Pedro, incoming mayor Art Mercado decided to learn some lessons from somebody he admires.

In a Facebook post, Mercado shared that he met with Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto in March to know more about his projects that reformed his city.

After the polls, Mercado went to see Sotto again to ask for advice about what he could do in San Pedro.

Mercado said he learned a lot from Sotto, and there are a lot of Pasig programs that he wants to emulate.

He said he admires Sotto as he has seen the changes in Pasig when it comes to policies, programs, social services, transparency, governance, and pandemic response.

He wants to see the same in San Pedro.

If there is a chance, he wants to bring Sotto to San Pedro as well, he said.

He’s sure many San Pedro residents would be happy to see the Pasig mayor!

“Isa sa mga bagay na natutunan ko sa buhay ay makinig at matuto sa iba. Marami tayong matututunan sa karanasan ng iba na maaari nating iapply sa ating mga sarili at buhay. Kaya bukod sa libro, gusto ko talagang makakausap ng ibang mga tao para humingi ng payo o makinig sa kanilang mga kwento.

For the past 3 years, nakita nating lahat ang malaking pagbabago sa bayan ng Pasig. Mula sa kanilang policies and programs, implementation ng mga social services, transparency & governance, at lalo na sa pandemic response. Ito yung gusto ko sanang matutunan at madala natin sa ating bayan.

Noong March bago ang kampanya, binisita ko si Mayor Vico para malaman kung ano ang mga ginawa nilang hakbang para mabago ang Pasig. At ngayong tapos na ang eleksyon, bumalik kami ulit upang humingi ng payo para sa mga maaari nating gawin para sa ating bayan.

Maraming salamat Mayor Vico Sotto sa inyong oras. Marami po akong natutunan at gustong kopyahin na mga programa mula sa Pasig na gusto kong dalhin sa San Pedro. Pagnagkaroon ng pagkakataon, dalhin din namin kayo sa amin minsan. Hehe.

Maraming salamat din kay City Admin Atty. Jeron Uy Manzanero sa lahat ng tulong. Si Atty Jeron ay dati ng kaibigan ni Mika, since grade 7 pa.

Sana makabisita po kayo sa amin, madaming matutuwa niyan!” Mercado posted.
