Turf wars: Along Malapitan pays for declogging ops in Egay Erice’s district
Caloocan first district Rep. Along Malapitan is bent on courting the support of as many residents as possible for his rumored mayoralty bid in 2022.
Malapitan shelled his own money to pay residents of Barangay 8 to clean clogged canals in their area. The community is part of Caloocan’s second district, which is represented by Congressman Egay Erice in the House of Representatives.
Erice is rumored to be eyeing the mayoralty seat.
“Tulong tulong tayo. Anumang distrito, basta para sa residente, wala tayong pipiliin. Ang malasakit natin ay para sa lahat,” Malapitan explained.
The son of incumbent Caloocan Mayor Oca Malapitan visited Barangay 8 to inspect the clogged drainage in the area.
“Bilang solusyon, nag-abot tayo ng tulong pinansyal para makabili ng mga materyales na kakailanganin sa pagtanggal ng bara at para maiwasan ang pagbaha sa na makakaperwisyo sa mga residente,” he said.
