MANILA, Philippines — With less than a week before the elections, Quezon City mayoralty candidate Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte renewed her pledge to maintain the ‘Belmonte Brand’ by upholding fairness, honesty, transparency, accountability and zero corruption should she be elected as the city’s next mayor.

“Malinis ang pangalan namin bilang Belmonte at hindi ako gagawa ng anuman para mabahiran ang pangalang Belmonte. Malinis na paglilingkod, tapat na paglilingkod, at paglilingkod na para sa lahat. Pantay-pantay, walang palakasan—‘yan ang Belmonte brand,” the vice mayor said.


Belmonte also thanked her supporters following the latest survey by the RP-Mission and Development Foundation Inc. (RPMDinc) which she topped with a 60 percent voter preference.

This showed a 28 percent lead in voter preference over her opponents Cong. Vincent Crisologo, with 32 percent, and Ismael Mathay III with 4 percent.


She also mentioned the 95 percent trust rating she obtained in the previous survey by RPMDinc. dated April 19 to 25 where the study inferred that her 62 percent of votes are “solid votes” and would not change given her high trust rating.

“Nagpapasalamat ako sa tiwala at paninindigan sa akin ng mga mamamayan natin sa Quezon City dahil sa 95 percent na trust rating sa akin. Totoo naman, kapag hinanap niyo ‘yung pangalan ko sa internet, kahit kailan hindi ako nasangkot sa anumang iskandalo. Hindi ako naakusahang nagnakaw sa kaban ng bayan, at hindi ako nag-abuso sa kapangyarihan kung hindi, lahat ng panahon ko ay inilaan ko sa taumbayan,” Belmonte said.

Belmonte also vowed to strictly implement the ordinances passed by the Quezon City Council under her supervision as the presiding officer during her term as the vice mayor of Quezon City.

“Marami kaming naipasang ordinansa sa Quezon City Council na nais kong pagtuunan ng pansin kung ako ay mapo-promote. Nandyan ang Quezon City University, Protection Centers for Women and Children, solusyon sa pabahay at palupa, crime reduction sa ating lungsod, social services, at marami pang iba.”

“Gusto kong makakuha ito ng kumpletong suporta mula sa ating lokal na pamahalaan, kaya ito ang aking gagawin, para sa mga mamamayan ng Quezon City,” Belmonte added.  /muf
