Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio assured Dabawenyos that she is not neglecting her duties as mayor.
“I assure all Dabawenyos that my strength as a mayor is to take on several roles and ensure that work is carried out,” said Duterte-Carpio.
Duterte-Carpio asserted that during the fulfillment of her duties in other parts of the country, all the services and operations in Davao city would remain uninterrupted with the help of vice mayor Sebastian Duterte.
“I don’t stop being mayor wherever I am. I give instructions and make decisions at all times of the day, whenever needed,” added the mayor in an explanation of how she had already divided her entire week between her work as mayor, politics, and her family.
In another recent ambush interview, she told the media that Davao city’s vaccination program is currently “doing very well”, but the main target is to achieve herd immunity come November 2021.
The mayor hopes for more vaccines to arrive so that the city can continuously roll out more doses to Dabawenyos.
According to the Davao City Vaccination Cluster, as of June 30, a total of 257,253 doses were already administered- 211,425 administered for the first dose and 45,828 on the second dose.
Duterte-Carpio led a recent survey on top presidential bets for next year with his father, President Rodrigo Duterte as the top vice presidential bet.
