Now that the financial district Makati City is back in the management of outgoing Vice President Jejomar Binay’s family and peers – after his daughter, Congresswoman Abby Binay, was proclaimed as the city’s new mayor last Tuesday morning, residents of Makati can now be rest assured that the quality of public services there will not deteriorate. In fact, it can only improve with the qualified team members vowing to work together for the people’s welfare. The progress will also allow Makati to take care of its sister LGUs all over the country.
Abby Binay beat incumbent Mayor Kid Peña at 15,684 votes margin. Monique Lagdameo, Binay’s running mate, also won as vice mayor at 166,450 votes.
Her husband, Luis Campos belonging to the influencial Nakpil clan, also replaced her as representative of Makati’s 2nd district along with actor and taekwondo athlete Monsour del Rosario for the 1st district. Very dashing Makati congressmen and empowered ladies indeed who are seen to be hands on to the city’s public service efforts.
