Mayor Menchie Abalos receives the Seal of Good Local Governance Hall of Fame Award from the Department of the Interior and Local Government in fitting rites held recently at the Manila Hotel for the city’s unyielding and continuous efforts on transparency, integrity and effective public service delivery and innovations in local governance.
The multi-awarded Tiger City takes pride in consistently achieving the top recognition in good governance for 5 consecutive years since 2015 making it as one of the 29 (cities, municipalities and provinces) hall of famers in the whole Philippines.
Among the cities, Mandaluyong by far, is one of the only 2 in the NCR and one of the 6 cities in the Philippines to have consistently received the Seal for five straight years, eventually making it to the initial roster of SGLG Hall of Famers.
A total of 380 local government units were conferred the Seal by the DILG this 2019. With Mayor Abalos in photo are DILG Secretary Eduardo Año, Undersecretary Marivel Sacendoncillo, Regional Director Maria Lourdes Agustin, Assistant Regional Director Juan Jovian Ingeniero, City Director Patrick John Megia, and Mandaluyong City government officials Arman Comandao and Jimmy Isidro.
