Pasig City councilor Vico Sotto has vowed to widen people’s participation in the local government’s activities if he wins the mayoralty race.

In a Facebook post dated March 12, Sotto said the people should be involved in what the local government does, including setting the city’s annual budget.

He made the assurance in response to a question whether the “Talakayan” or discussions he holds with Pasig residents now will continue if he beats incumbent Mayor Bobby Eusebio.

“Ang sagot ko, maganda na may talakayan, subalit hindi dapat nagtatapos dito ang partisipasyon ng tao. Lahat ng proyekto, lahat ng patakaran, at ang BUONG BUDGET MISMO ng Pasig ay padaanin natin sa makabuluhan at pormal na #konsultasyon bago ipatupad,” Sotto said.

The councilor said he plans to revive the “local special body” composed of various stakeholders should he become Pasig’s next mayor.
