PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte’s lone bet in the local elections continues to make waves in  the city’s first district and win the hearts of different sectors.

Dang Imperial Mangalino of Partido Federal ng Pilipinas has been warmly welcomed and appreciated in her consultations with various cause-oriented groups, senior citizens, PWD federations, SK and Youth leaders as well as church and civic organizations.

“I take pride in getting the full support of different sectors in my advocacy to deliver equitable distribution of services among Makati City’s first district residents. My goal is to implement an holistic approach in serving the people,” Mangalino said.

Decentralization of aid coming from the national government is also among her priorities. She vows to promote the spirit of volunteerism to make less fortunate Makati residents become beneficiaries of Malasakit Center. This office is under the umbrella of the Office of the President.

“During my consultations, these sectors disclosed that health care, peace and order, education and social services are on top of their concerns. Iassured them that I’ll do my best to voice their sentiments in the national government. I would closely coordinate with councilors handling these committees to unify our good intentions in serving the people,” she added.

Mangalino is Duterte’s National Executive Coordinating Committee (MRRD NERC) NCR Sectoral chairman who leads volunteers in providing free medical and dental services, conducting free eye check-up and distribute free eyeglasses, giving away wheelchairs, hearing aids, crutches to PWDs, and feeding programs for undernourished children via soup kitchen.

She spearheaded the MRRD NERC OGOP (Help) Marawi Team who volunteered in helping families, particularly women and children, displaced by the Marawi siege. Mangalino  is also Partido Federal ng Pilipinas Makati Chairperson, Tagasupil Makati chairwoman and Founding Head of Guardians GUADII SG Makati City.  

“I am certain that President Duterte’s platform of governance would help me get one seat in the City Council despite of warring heavyweight candidates who have the marginal advantage in terms of campaign funds and sources,” Mangalino said.
