Mayor Honey Lacuna expressed elation that more and more provinces are seeking to establish sister city relations with Manila.

Lacuna said this a good indication that the Manila local government unit is heading toward the right direction.

She added that many officials from various LGUs in the provinces have sought audience with her to inquire about the many programs that have been put in place. The latest to have expressed their desire to have a sister-city agreement with Manila were Calapan, Oriental Mindoro Mayor Malou Morillo and Vice Mayor Bim Ignacio.

Although relatively young, the administration of Lacuna has seen the city government reaping many awards in various aspects of governance.

The different kinds of recognition bestowed on the city were for the efforts put in promoting tourism, provision of health care services, quality education and online systems, among others.

The said awards received by the city, according to Lacuna, is an acknowledgement of good governance on the part of the city government.

The lady mayor commended the officials and employes behind the operations of the departments concerned for their dedication and hard work.

Lacuna said the success of her administration is largely due to the cooperation and support of the city employees to all the programs and vision she had laid out for better delivery of basic services to Manila residents.
