Vice-Mayor Karissa Tolentino-Maxino elaborates on why despite all the brickbats from the vociferous opposition and challenges, she has opted to remain faithful to the LUPAD vision under the leadership of Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo and will still run for her 3rd term as councilor in 2022.
In an interview with Assistant City Administrator Dr. Dinno T. Depositario, Vice-Mayor Tolentino-Maxino also disclosed that no one has influenced her to enter public service and that it was her personal decision starting at the tender age of 15, when she was first elected as SK Chairperson of Barangay Batinguel and later as President of the SK Federation of Dumaguete City.
LUPAD stands for Livable and cultured community; Urban revitalization inclusive of all barangays; Professionalism in government service and good governance; Abundance of food, clothing and adequate shelter for every family and Devotion to God, country and community.
