Para sa tao: Belmonte eyes greater coordination between QC executive, legislative branches
Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte has urged members of the legislative and the executive units to work together closely for the benefit of residents.
At the opening of the two-day Executive Legislative Agenda (ELA) Capacity Development Formulation Workshop, Belmonte noted that there are still ordinances lacking in the city due to lack of coordination with the legislative branch.
“In the same way, maraming naipasang high-quality measures ang legislative na hindi na-implement. We would to avoid this already,” she said.
The workshop tackled Mayor Belmonte’s 14-point Executive Agenda, which she presented during the first Legislative-Executive Development Advisory Council (LEDAC) last month.
Belmonte said she wants part of her agenda to be aligned with President Duterte’s priority programs, including campaign against illegal drugs, peace and order, climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction and good governance, to maximize its benefits for local residents.
Also included in the mayor’s plan for the city are to deliver responsive, efficient and cost-effective social services, build more homes, provide better healthcare, ensure higher quality education, empower citizens of every gender and social class and build a safe and more resilient city.
“We want to put the welfare of the people at the forefront of our objectives. Lahat ng aming programa, nakasentro sa kapakanan ng mga taga-Lungsod Quezon,” she said.
