Marikina City Mayor Marcy Teodoro wants to adopt Davao City’s “brand of leadership.”

Teodoro told reporters on Wednesday that he wants to use the practices of Davao City’s “strong government” following the signing of a “sister city agreement” between the two cities.


The signed agreement aims to promote and expand the cultural and commercial ties of Marikina City and Davao City.


The agreement was signed at the Marikina City Hall by Teodoro and Davao Vice Mayor Bernard Al-ag on behalf of Mayor Sara Duterte who was unavailable at the time.

“Marikina City and Davao City have parallelism. Both [cities] have order. There is no sidewalk vending in Marikina City. Waste management is very effective here. Also, anti-littering [is effective]. If you would notice, there is no trash anywhere,” Teodoro said.

Likewise, Teodoro said that Marikina City also provides the basic services for the people, including housing and other fundamental infrastructures that maintain order, just like Davao City.

“You cannot implement anti-jaywalking if you will not provide pedestrian lanes in its proper places. You cannot implement unloading/loading areas if there are no allocated places for the purpose,” he said.

Aside from the governance model, Teodoro also commended Davao’s peace and order practices. Syrah Vivien Inocencio, intern
