It is certainly not unusual but indisputably a commanding strength. The tandem of a father and daughter is exceptionally formidable. In fact, having one Duterte in the City Hall has proven more than competence and political will, and having two of them provide a public service twice the quality and effectiveness.
And why not? The father-daughter leadership of Davao City is a perfect portrait of effective and responsible governance. Dabawenyos do not only enjoy the result of the Rody-Sara headship but also take pride and confidence to live in the most peaceful city in the Philippines.
As the local elections move closer, and the game of politics is taking the limelight, so are Duterte’s detractors. But tough leaders like Sara and Rody are definitely non traditional politicians who would go down to the level of their critics. For the father and daughter who make Davao City different from the rest of the country, election is just a confirmation of their commitment of genuine public service and truthful administration. More than anybody else, the Dabawenyos know what is good for the city and discern who are best enough to lead and oversee this land of promise.
As the people of Davao have always been intelligent voters in the past, the coming May 2010 elections would once again prove that Dabawenyos want no less than a responsible government and a city where the streets and a home are equally safe places to be.
Davao City is never the same place without the command of Rody Duterte. One of the most noted achievements of Duterte’s administration is the able maintenance of Peace and Order. Since the time he became the highest public authority of the city, Davao has transformed into a haven for all people who either live or visit this beautiful southern metropolis. The number of street crimes and criminals, have particularly gone down due to his no-nonsense policies and consistent implementation of laws.
More than that, the city government is able to concretise all its program and priority thrusts in social services, housing, livelihood, agriculture, technology, environment, health services, infrastructures, and education, providing Davaoenos the satisfaction of quality living. Mayor Duterte is not just a politician, he is like a father to his constituents who look after their welfare and safety.
