Makati City Mayor Abigail Binay accompanied newly-elected members of the Makati City Council in a legislative course workshop aimed at enhancing their legislative capabilities.

Binay said the workshop, dubbed as “Makati City: Gearing Up for Legislative Enhancement and Productivity” or MC-LEAP, is expected to boost the efficiency of the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) as the local policy-making body of Makati City.

Aside from Binay and Vice Mayor Monique Lagdameo, eight elected councilors from the first district attended the workshop, namely,
Virgilio “Jhong” Hilario, Jr.; Ferdinand T. Eusebio; Rico J. Puno; Ma. Concepcion M. Yabut; Marie Alethea Casal-Uy; Romeo C. Medina; Ma. Arlene M. Ortega, and Luis Javier.

“I thank Vice Mayor Monique Lagdameo and the other newly elected members of the City Council who participated in the specialized workshop for supporting our thrust of promoting competence and the ability to lead among our local officials of Makati,” the city mayor said.

Binay stressed that the level of competence of local legislators to produce relevant and timely legislative measures would be necessary to the effective delivery of services to the residents and other stakeholders of Makati City.
