CALOOCAN CITY — There’s always a first time, as the saying goes, proves true as Congressman Dale “Along” Malapitan obtained a 67-percentage result will be up against Congressman Edgar “Egay” Erice who only got 30- percentage count in the “NCR Halalan 2022 survey” conducted by RP- Mission and Development Foundation Inc. (RPMDinc).

Erice earlier bragged that never in this city’s history that the local chief executive position is inherited by the incumbent’s kin.

“Magmula po kasi nang manungkulan si Mayor Oca (Malapitan) ay marami na siyang magandang nagawa at napaunlad po niya ang Caloocan,” residents said in a random interview.

Interestingly, non-re-electionist Mayor Oscar “Oca” Malapitan secured the highest performance rating of 65 percent mark and there has been a strong public clamor for his son Dale to continue the “legacy development projects.”

They noted that the once dirty and “dangerous” Monumento had been cleaned up and no longer will anyone pass by fearing for his life and security.

Under the administration of Malapitan, the University of Caloocan City was established and two modern medical centers were built – the Caloocan City Medical Center (CCMC) and the Caloocan City North Medical Center.

Aside from the two medical centers, the Caloocan Puericulture Center and Maternity House at the annex building of CCMC along Mabini St. has been upgraded.

A state-of-the-art, modern city hall and the Caloocan City Coliseum, as big as the Araneta Coliseum, also serve as “legacy development projects” that propelled this city as the 7th richest city in the Philippines.

Two state universities — the Caloocan University North and South — have been built and a branch in the Camarin area is under construction.

Students are given regular allowances by Mayor Oca and Cong. Along Malapitan.

Meanwhile, leaders of the Malapitan Pa Rin Movement said the issue of political dynastism seems hollow and ineffective in this city.

They said that just like having good and bad cholesterol, Mayor Oca Malapitan and his son 1st District Representative Along Malapitan, have proven to be a good one and the issue of political dynasties do not affect their performance and public service.

Earlier, the “House of Representatives Public Satisfaction Survey” conducted by RP-Mission and Development Foundation, Inc., has conducted a survey in every region with a total of 10,000 respondents who were asked: “Do you approve or disapprove of the way (name of district representative) in handling his/her job as Congressman/Congresswoman?”

In the National Capital Region (NCR), Cong. Malapitan was 6th among the 10 lawmakers. (ai/mtvn)
