MANILA, April 4 — Re-electionist Pasay City Mayor Antonino "Tony" Calixto, together with other local candidates, vowed to deliver a sure win for the senatorial slate of President Benigno Aquino III during the proclamation rally held in the city on Wednesday night.

Calixto said that “Team Calixto” will work hand in hand to support the “Team Pnoy” and ensure their landslide victory.

Present during the proclamation rally were senatorial candidates Bam Aquino, Risa Hontiveros, Koko Pimentel, Loren Legarda while Sonny Angara was represented by his wife Tootsie.

Meanwhile, as early as now, Calixto already smells early victory in his reelection bid following the survey showing that he is leading the race in the mayoralty post and is expected to win by a landslide.

The Social Weather Stations survey revealed that Calixto is the top choice of 63 percent of the respondents in the two districts of Pasay based on the SWS survey. He was followed by former Mayor Peewee Trinidad with 13 percent and political neophyte Jorge del Rosario with 11 percent while eight percent were undecided four percent had invalid ballot markings.

The SWS survey conducted from February 22-24, 2013 used the official list of candidates and the ballot box technique on 400 Pasay City registered voters. It has a margin of error of five plus or minus percentage points.

Calixto said that his track record will show that he has greatly improved the delivery of services for his constituents and brought progress and remarkable development in the city.

He vowed to continue the programs and projects his administration has been implementing to make Pasay the country’s “Travel City” in order to increase tourism, employment, and investment.

He attributed his success to the continued support of the people especially in taking the challenge of sustaining the city’s growth and improving the delivery of basic services.

“The survey results show that we have been successful in getting the trust and confidence of our people. Thus, my administration will double our efforts to put in place programs like the ‘Take Care I Care’ Health Card that has been successful in easing the burden of health care among Pasay’s poor residents,” he said.

Since 2010, Calixto has caused the construction of school buildings, implemented housing projects, modernized the various health centers, and concreted roads and rehabilitated drainage systems to solve the flooding problem.

He said that part of the City Government social services are medical equipment for the various barangays, scholarships for poor but deserving students, and medical and burial assistance to indigent residents. (PNA)

    A landslide victory is almost sure with Team PNoy. Compared to the rest, candidates under Team PNoy are highly qualified.
