Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte, Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno were declared as the best performers in Metro Manila, according to a recent poll.
The survey, conducted out by the non-commissioned RP Mission and Development Foundation Inc. for the period Feb. 20 to 28, found Belmonte with the highest approval rating of 86 percent, followed by Sotto (83 percent) and Moreno (80 percent).
Rounding up the survey’s top 5 Metro Manila chief executives were Valenzuela City Mayor Rex Gatchalian and Marikina City Mayor Marcelino Teodoro.
Each was cited for the innovations introduced in addressing public concerns during the pandemic, social and welfare services and ease of doing business in their respective jurisdictions.
Sotto was called out for his agenda in eradicating corruption in Pasig. Last month, he was also cited by the US State Department as one of its “anti-corruption champions” for his efforts in this regard.
