Vico Sotto’s promise to Pasig council: ‘Hindi ako maghahari-harian’
Vico Sotto is promising that he won’t be an imposing mayor to the city council.
The new Pasig mayor readily addressed the elephant in the room as he met members of the new City Council, knowing fully well that he was not allies with any of them when he won the May 13 elections. But he promised independence and collaboration, which he hopes will be reciprocated by the politikos older than him.
“Inaugural Session of the 10th Pasig City Council. Congratulations Vice Iyo and Councilors! Despite our political history, I am confident that we will be able to work well together,” Sotto said.
“Hindi ako mag-aastang boss, hindi rin maghahari-harian. Mas maganda kung nagbibigay rin ang Sanggunian ng mga suhestiyon, at OK lang din kung kumontra ang mga konsehal sa mayor kung maganda naman ang intensiyon. Ang mahalaga, iisa ang layunin nating mapaganda ang ating Lungsod,” he added.
