MANILA, July 10 – Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista said Saturday his administration is pursuing development programs which deal on social services and health delivery to the city's continuously increasing population.

Bautista assured the local residents of providing them with tangible and worthy programs that will promote not only Quezon City's social and economic development, but political stability as well.

“Propelling the city to progress is a shared leadership and I am willing to share this principle adopted by my predecessor in leading Quezon City at its best competitive form, not only regionally, but globally as well,” the newly-installed mayor said.

Bautista, a former vice mayor, succeeded three-term Mayor Feliciano R. Belmonte Jr. who is now the congressman for the city's fourth district.

Bautista also urged the barangay officials to help in bringing city government services closer to the people.

“We have to work together as a team for us to spread the gains of the city’s development to a greater number of people,” he said.

Meanwhile, the new QC mayor ordered the cleanup of city waterways to minimize flooding incidents during heavy rains.

Bautista directed the city engineering department to oversee the dredging activities. He said that with the prevailing weather condition, it is but imperative to conduct the cleanup drive of all city waterways.

He lamented that the city’s waterways have become dumping grounds for household and industrial waste materials, including some campaign materials used in the May 10 polls such as tarpaulins.

Bautista also tapped the city’s barangay officials in the cleanup drive. (PNA) scs/JCA
