“WAG na kayong magpatumpik-tumpik pa.”

Thus said Mayor Honey Lacuna, as she urged city government employees who have no houses of their own to avail of the local government’s housing projects.

In her message at the flag raising ceremony, Lacuna assured that the city government continues striving to make Manilans have homes that they can truly call their own.

“Patuloy tayong nagsusumikap na ayusin ang mga pabahay sa Tondo, Baseco at Binondo and soon, matatapos na ang ating mga pabahay kung saan ang makikinabang ay ang mga empleyado,” she said.

Lacuna added: “Kaya abangan po ninyo, dun po sa mga nais na magkaroon ng pabahay na mga empleyado ng pamahalaang-lungsod, makipag-ugnayan lamang po kayo sa urban settlements office, ‘yan po ay sa San Lazaro, San Sebastian at Pedro Gil. ‘Wag na kayo magpatumpik-tumpik pa.”

The lady mayor said that the beauty of the scheme in the city government’s housing projects is that the beneficiaries are just like putting their savings in the bank.

“Ang kagandahan ng pabahay natin ay parang iniipon lang ang buwanang bayad dahil pagdating ng panahon, kung gusto ninyong lisanin ay maibabalik sa inyo ‘yung buwanang ibinabayad ninyo. At ang kagahdahan pa, napakababa ng buwanang bigay ninyo, kundi ako nagkakamali,pinakamataas na ay P3,000 kada buwan,” Lacuna said.

This amount, she said, is relatively low considering the kind of housing projects that the city government of Manila offers, which, she said, is at par with first-class private condominium units in the country.

“Kaya nga po kayo na ang una kong sinasabihan nang sa ganoon ay kayo ang unang makinabang sa pinaghirapan po nating lahat,” she stressed.
