TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY, THE SUPPOSED COMPUTERIZED TAX COLLECTION SYSTEM WAS NOT WORKING. FINANCIAL RECORDS AND DOCUMENTS WERE MISSING.

MALALA RIN ANG DINATNAN NATING PROBLEMA SA KAPAYAPAAN. NAGING KARNAP CAPITAL ANG MAYNILA. NAGLIPANA ANG ILLEGAL NA DROGA. NAGKALAT ANG PASUGALAN. LAGANAP ANG PROSTITUSYON. MARAMING MGA PULIS AY SANGKOT SA IBA’T IBANG KRIMEN. AT MABABA  ANG MORALE NG MGA PULIS DAHIL HINDI NAIBIBIGAY ANG KANILANG ALLOWANCE AT KULANG SA SUPORTA. (VISUAL E NEWS CLIPPINGS ON VARIOUS CRIMES.)

HEALTH CARE SERVICES IN OUR HOSPITALS WERE FREE OF CHARGE UNDER THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION, BUT THIS POLICY FOR BOTH RESIDENTS OR NON-RESIDENTS, REGARDLESS OF INCOME, DRAINED AND DEPLETED THE BUDGET TO THE PREJUDICE OF MANILA RESIDENTS ESPECIALLY THE POOREST OF THE POOR.
