I care about my city.

I exchanged a few words with Inside Marikina, a blog that showcases the good in my city. I responded to this post – https://marikinacity.wordpress.com/2016/03/28/2016-local-candidates-in-marikina-elections/

Eileen Leyva Please furnish us with the resumes of these names, and the corresponding projects they have done. Their names are not enough for us to know who they are and what they have done. Inside Marikina, please do not sugar coat, tell us who they really are, because we can only elect them into office just once in three years. From my viewpoint, Marikina has deteriorated. Trees were cut down at Rainbow St. and the circle near St. Scholastica. The five kilometer eco-friendly walkplace at Riverbanks is reduced to 1.5. The pedestrians and bicycle riders at the bridge leading to Marquinton area are unruly. How many times were the sign Road Closed placed at Tangerine and Aquamarine streets due to flashflood. And Lilac by night has become like a district in filthy Quezon City. The roads have been repainted just recently, and not the entirety of the city. Pavements? One wonders when we get to be the ideal city again. Bike lane? Who are we kidding? Sigh. We could have soared higher in the past six years. Am looking only at my surroundings. We have to look more at what our officials are really doing.

Inside Marikina Hi Eileen. We can feel your frustration.
For one, we do not have the resumes of all of these candidates. However, you can always check their social media accounts to see what they have been up to and whats their “promise” if they get elected.
Inside Marikina is here to promote the city and not destroy its image that’s why we present the good side – well, may nakakalusot na mga bad news minsan.There are facebook groups for marikina kung saan nagbabatuhan ng putik ang mga members concerning sa mga baho ng marikina and lately, their bets on the upcoming elections. You might want to join if its ok with you na sumakit lalo ang ulo niyo smile emoticon

Eileen LeyvaExpecting better than the good you present. Marikina looks shabby, even the traffic aides, when asked about why they do not reprimand the disobedient motorists with Ateneo stickers on their vehicles, and force a U turn after the fly over, could only sigh, it is not our duty to stop them. Asked what is their duty? To walk pedestrians to and fro. Inside Marikina, I am ranting here because I want my city to be the best it can be. We cannot deceive our citizens that everything is good when it is not. How can you promote an image when it is decaying? Please, your best is not good enough. Tell us who are these people, our own citizens who want to lead us. Do not dismiss me through social media. Surely you know that I seriously mean to know who these people are. If you want to give a good image of Marikina, tell us about its people, about its leaders. Break a leg, Inside Marikina.
