Outgoing Malabon Vice Mayor Jeannie Sandoval has assured that their health and education initiatives in the city will continue despite her loss in the mayoralty race last Monday during the mid-term elections.
Administration-backed Sandoval lost to incumbent Mayor Lenlen Oreta, member of the Liberal Party.
On her Facebook page, Sandoval said that her initiatives, along with her dreams, for Malabon will not stop despite getting beaten in the elections.
She said that she and her husband, Ricky Sandoval, who ran and lost in the city’s lone district representative, will still continue their initiatives in health and education services.
“With the help of the President, the construction of San Lorenzo Ruiz General Hospital in Barangay Panghulo and the Malasakit Center will push through,” she said in Filipino. “Once they are constructed, free healthcare services will no longer be a problem for the residents of Malabon.”
Meanwhile, she added that the first Malabon Mathematics and Science High School, which will serve as an avenue for kids to enhance their skills in math and science, will open next month.
Also opening is the Maritime High School in Santiago Syjuco Integrated School.
“I hope that children, who have been thirsting for quality and free education, would not be disregarded,” she said.
