Mayor Honey recognized by DILG for excellent handling of Manila’s finances

Excellent handling of Manila's finances

The city government of Manila under the leadership of Mayor Honey Lacuna received a Mark of Recognition for handling the city’s finances very well.

The recognition was handed over to the lady mayor by the Department of the Interior and Local Government represented by John Visca, who also said the accolade was given to the city under Lacuna’s reins for passing the 2022 good financial housekeeping assessment.

“Ito po ay katunayan na sa unang pagkakataon, ang lungsod ng Maynila ay pumasa sa ‘seal of good housekeeping,” said Visca as he presented the recognition during the regular flagraising ceremony on Monday.

He added: “Ito po ‘yung katunayan na ang nakaupo (Mayor Lacuna) ay matino at mahusay sa paghawak ng ating pananalapi. Lahat ng documents ay maaring ma-access ng publiko.”

For her part, Lacuna said the recognition will inspire her to strive to do even better and expressed hope that her co-workers in City Hall will do the same.

The mayor also stressed that when it comes to city funds, she and all other city officials are really very careful in making sure that the people’s money are spent wisely and efficiently.

Lacuna said the credit goes not only to her but all other officials and employees in charge of keeping the city government’s finances in proper order at all times.

She stressed that all of the accomplishments of her administration and the accolades that the local government gets are achieved through the support and help of all city government employees and officials.

“Hindi po natin makakamit ang mga bagay na ito nang ako lamang mag-isa kaya salamat sa aking mga kasamahan sa City Hall at nawa ay magsilbing inspirasyon ang mga parangal na kagaya nito para higit pa nating pagbutihin ang ating trabaho sa araw-araw,” said Lacuna.
