QUEZON CITY HALL is spending 2 Billion Pesos for the "beautification" of sidewalks, Is this TRUE?

I got some complaints from the business establishments in Quezon City regarding the apparent whimsical beautification of Quezon City sidewalks. What is really bothering me and the rest of the residents is the fact that Mayor Sonny Belmonte does not seem to know his priority. While it is true that Quezon City has a lot of money and surplus compared to Makati and other municipalities and cities in Metro Manila (and compared to the time of the Mathays), in my humble opinion, it would be wise and prudent to "earmark" and allocate the money for the truly beneficial projects for the Quezon City taxpayers and constituents such as livelihood program, education, health center, environmental projects and many more. Sayang ang pera eh. Worst the business owners of the affected business establishments where the snail paced digging of the sidewalks is being done are now up in arms against SB.

Sir, sana naman may urban planning naman tayo. Mahirap na ang buhay ng tao. Tumataas ang mga presyo ng mga bilihin at lahat lahat ng mga bagay. But it seems you're either densed or ill-advised! Uubusin nyo po ba ang natitirang pera ng QC dahil tapos na ang termino nyo? Hindi po ba mas maganda kung ang nagging legacy nyo ay makapagtayo ng ikakabuhay ng mga taong naguguton sa QC? Sir, kung totoo ngang 2 Billion Pesos ang makalaan para dito sa proyektong ito, di po bang mas maganda kung ang pera ay inilaan sa magandang proyekto tulad ng mga nabanggit ko? Aanhin mo ang magandang sidewalk kung kakalam-
kalam naman ang mga bituka ng mga constituents nyo?

Idol ko po kayo SB. I campaigned for you. My late father was your colleague in the defunct Manila Chronicle. He told many so many good things about you. But just the same, kung susuriin, di naman usapin ang halaga ng perang ginugugol o gugugulin ng city hall. Ang usapin dito ay tama ba ang prioridad ng lokal na pamahalaan ng city hall? Sinong makababatid kung ano ang tama o mali? Kung anong dapat at hindi dapat gawing proyektong mga lokal na pamahalaan? O mananatili na naman ba ang katwirang,"WHAT ARE WE IN POWER FOR?"Hanggang kelan po ba matatapos ang paghuhukay ng mga sidewalks? Magkano po ba talaga ang halagang gugugulin? Mas mahalaga ba ang pagpapaganda o pagbibigay na maayos na kabuhay at edukasyon sa mga taga QC? Nagtatanong lang po.... sayang po ang bayad ko sa tax!

Ako kasi is a TRUE BLUE QUEZON CITY BOY. Was born in Delgado Clinic and grew up in QC talaga. Yung mga iba kayang mga politikong pulpol sa QC, can they say the same?

By the way, pakisabihan nga po Mayor SB yung barangay captain namin sa Sacred Heart, sir. He condones his tanods in playing cara y cruz which is just stone throw away from the barangay hall! It's disgusting. His reason daw as told to me by some people there in Soupremo Pares is, "they're not on their duty anymore". Sayang, ang campaign slogan pa naman nyang barangay captain namin ay AKSYON LAGI (his nickname is AL!), pero tila puro dada lang itong AL na ito pero wala namang ginagawa. As the saying goes, VERBA MOVENT, EXEMPLA TRAHENT! Words inspire, actions influence. Need I say more?
