IN an effort to save Manilans from falling prey to fake news, Mayor Honey Lacuna has created a new segment in her regular capital report where she would discuss and answer all the frequently asked questions (FAQs) whenever she and her partymates would hold their regular forum in barangays.

Lacuna said that the portion will feature the most common questions or concerns that get raised during their ‘Kalinga sa Maynila’ forum which is held every week.

She explained that the ‘Kalinga sa Maynila’ program that she launched last year goes around various barangays in an effort to bring the city government services directly to the people.

“Ito po ang aming paraan kung saan kami ay bumababa sa mga barangay para makipag-ugnayan sa mga barangay officials, senior citizens, iba’t-ibang sector gaya ng TODA, youth at NGOs,” Lacuna said.

The lady mayor added: “Mismong pamahalaan na ang bumababasa mga lugar na ito upang malaman namin ang inyong pangangailangan at ito ay matugunan.”

Lacuna expressed belief that more often than not, residents go to City Hall seeking answers to their concerns but do not know exactly how to go about it or what office to visit.

With the forum and the newly-added portion in her capital report, Lacuna said she and her fellow city officials opt to hear out for themselves the concerns, suggestions and complaints of the residents and also provide the answers to them.

“’Yung mga kadalasang tnatanong sa ‘Kalinga’ ay gusto rin naming malaman ninyo para once and for all, di na tayo malilito. Manggagaling na rin sa amin ang paraan para makaiwas sa di maakatotohanang naririnig ninyo kung kani-kanino o fake news,” Lacuna said.
