Joy Belmonte has a message to her haters

0 190

Mayor Joy Belmonte thinks she is slaying her first few weeks leading Quezon City, critics aside.

The politiko acknowledged the help of barangay officials for yet another milestone, as kiosks dotting Timog and Tomas Morato have been demolished thanks to her and President Rodrigo Duterte’s words.

She’s coming from this deep hugot as she grapples with doubters and bashers on a daily basis. By her standards, she’s doing great as a newbie mayor.

The latest bashing she got was for being the earliest to suspend classes last week, only to be proven right by the wrath of typhoon Hanna and the habagat.

“To those who just love to see me fail, that just goes to show how much your personal bitterness exceeds your love for your City. Or do you love your City?,” Belmonte said.

“Perhaps its just the perks you love and miss. But ‘perks’ are a choice, which don’t necessarily come w the job. I choose not to have any, because that’s not what I signed up for when I took on this post,” she added, which appears to be a nod to her former opponents.
