Nabaterya! QC mayor scored for non-suspension of classes

0 94

It isn’t easy to be in Japan, especially if you’re Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista.

Bautista was flooded with criticism from netizens Thursday, after the city government decided not to suspend classes for the day despite heavy rain.

Several areas in Metro Manila had suspended classes for Thursday due to the inclement weather – but not Quezon City.

“Regular classes for Quezon City schools, July 27, 2017
PAG-ASA forecast light to moderate rains,” the city government said at 4:14 a.m.


Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte, in a Facebook post, said their decision was to be based entirely on Pagasa’s weather forecast.

“I expect we will be bashed to death later by the public, simply because one cannot please everyone,” she said .
But Belmonte said they eventually agreed that “parents must exercise their judgment and prerogative to keep their children home especially those living in more risky areas.”

Still, it was too late for the city government to escape the wrath of netizens.

“Qingina ni herbert bautista i impeach na yan!”

“wow! tanging qc ang may pasok. all other cities, nag-suspend na,”

“Sa mga botante ng QC alam nyo na kung sinong hindi nyo iboboto next election year. Clue: mayor herbert bautista #walangpasok”

“Palakpakan si mayor punyeta Japan pa.”


“Masyado bang lag, QC? Or sadyang manhid lang si Mayor kasi nasa Japan?”
