Pasay City vice-mayor calls three day trip of village officials a “waste of money”


Pasay City vice-mayor Greg Alcera called a trip of barangay (village) officials to other areas as a large waste of money.

Alcera estimated that Php 48 billion was spent by village officials of Pasay for their three-day Federalism seminar and unity conference in Cebu and Bohol.

According to the vice mayor, about 700 officials from Pasay City travelled to Cebu and Bohol for the said events that happened from March 8-10, but their posts in social media were all about food and merriment.

Alcera felt guilty for the wasted money especially since President Rodrigo Duterte prohibited junket trips of government officials in order to save money.
