Menchie Abalos Ready To Be The Mother of Mandaluyong City

Running a city is never easy, it involves a lot of work and dedication to keep it competitive and productive. Mandaluyong City is one of the prime cities of the country and is the most strategic area in Metro Manila. It shares part of the Ortigas business district and houses the largest malls in the country (and the world). Urban living here has increased with the growth of condominiums, shopping centers, and offices. 

And for the people of Mandaluyong City, almost everyone is busy with fast-paced lives of work, education, and even recreation. The "Tiger City" of the Metro proves itself from the hard work of the people and the vision of their leaders. This is the legacy of the Abalos for the city who nurtured the growth from the start of its city-hood. 

As Benhur Abalos serves his maximum term, he entrusts the city to also equally passionate for the welfare of Mandaluyong, his wife Carmelita "Menchie" Abalos. She is part of "Team Performance" which includes 1st District councilor Anthony Suva, Mandaluyong who is running  for vice mayor. If elected, she will be the first lady mayor of the city.

As the first lady of city, she did a lot of work for the citizens with projects on health, social services, and improvement. Her daughter Charisse Abalos ran for city council in 2013 and seeking for another term this election. The family was able to bring improved services to many barangays and also a Guinness World Record last year for the largest Zumba Party.

Like any other cities, Mandaluyong still has a lot of things to work out like traffic, disaster preparedness , health, and infrastructures. The Abalos' are known for their "Gawa Hindi Salita" (works not words) which does show with city-wide projects. Indeed progress is the focus here rather engage in political drama.

There is no doubt Menchie is ready to step up as the Mother of Mandaluyong, actually it would be very interesting how she will govern if elected. It would be foreseen that there will be more projects for the welfare of women and children, a feat she already started as first lady.
