Quisumbing, new councilors make courtesy call on outgoing Mayor Cortes
Mayor-elect Luigi Quisumbing and newly elected officials made a courtesy call to outgoing Mayor Jonas Cortes, who also won as the Representative of the Sixth District.
Quisumbing, Vice Mayor-elect Carlo Fortuna and newly elected councilors under the Liberal Party wanted to discuss with the mayor about Mandaue City’s ongoing projects, committee chairmanships and their transition plan.
“We just want to make sure that there will be a little interruption as much as possible with regard to the ongoing projects and other chores of the city government,” said the incoming Mayor Quisumbing.
Quisumbing said that they are setting up a schedule for the transition teams of both parties to come with the transition plan so that everything would be ready when the newly elected officials take over.
Cortes in a separate interview with Cebu Daily News said the next sitting mayor will be lucky enough to take over the city, which has just been given the ISO certification and has nearly completed its course under the Performance Governance System (PGS) conducted by the Institute for Solidarity in Asia.
He said that the city seeks to achieve an environment for sustainable economic growth and livable society through responsive governance and multi-sectoral involvement.
“I believe that this will be Mandaue’s road map to give a better if not the best service and products to its constituents and visitors as we aim to be the primary source of high quality manufactured consumer products by 2020,” said Cortes.
Being the new 6th district representative, Cortes said he will bring more developments to Cordova and Consolacion towns and work toward the making Mandaue a lone district.
Present during yesterday’s courtesy call were councilors-elect Olin Seno, Nenita Layese, Kevin Cabahug, Cynthia Remedio, Carmelino del Mar, Tony Dabon and Demetrio Cortes Jr., who are all from the Liberal Party.
Only three from One Cebu made it as councilors-elect, they are Elmer Cabahug, Ben Basiga and Malcom Sanchez.
