Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso on Monday, December 30 called on Manileños to unite and remain steadfast as a new year approaches.
Domagoso made the appeal after leading the wreath laying ceremony at Rizal Park to commemorate the heroism of Dr. Jose Rizal.
The mayor encouraged his constituents to remain positive in life, even as he acknowledged that 2019 was fraught with hardships.
Domagoso also appealed to all Manileños to help the local government in maintaining cleanliness and orderliness in the nation’s capital.
“Sana sa 2020, magtulong-tulong tayo na maging malinis at maaliwalas ang Lungsod ng Maynila,” Domagoso said.
“Maglinis tayo, maging ligtas tayo, at mahalin natin ang isa’t isa,” he said.
The Mayor further appealed to Manileños to lessen the use of fireworks and to secure their children from harm as they welcome 2020. He also asked barangay officials to help ensure the safety of the general public. (GTD/LMO)
