"Hindi naalala ng mga tao yata na iyung ibang (people seem to forget that other) local governments are much smaller than Quezon City... I'm begging for the indulgence of our listeners given this situation. However, we are acting on it already," she told DZMM during her exclusive interview.
"This is a marathon, not a sprint. Napakaimportante para sa akin na may maayos na plano tayo (it is very important for me that we have a proper plan), we have full information, that we bring in the help of the stakeholders, the citizens, especially iyung barangay,' she added.
Belmonte said she will convene the traffic management council "to plot out a strategy" and assign a point person that will give regular updates on every area.

The lady mayor said she has also ordered an inventory of the city's 400 traffic enforcers and plans to add 200 more.
She also said that she spent her 1st month of office studying and examining
which city departments should be scrapped or relieved of some of their duties.
"I wanted to do good housekeeping. Iyung tahanan na iniwan sa atin, medyo messy s'ya. Kinailangan ko lang talagang ayusin ang tahanan natin para siguraduhing tumatakbo s'ya nang maayos," the local chief executive said.

"By next week, makikita na ako ng mga taumbayan (I will be seen by the public), I will be going around, that's my promise to them. Don' worry, you'll see changes in the next 60 days," she added.
