Ted Failon slams QC's Belmonte for relying on the President's aid instead of using QC's budget of usin




Why Quezon City seems to be is having a problem coping with novel coronavirus 2019 or COVID-19?
Being the second richest urban center next only to Makati City, with P81 billion in assets yet its mayor, Joy Belmonte, has refused calls to realign its budget to face squarely the threat of COVID-19 which is an emerging humanitarian crisis.

ABS-CBN broadcaster and former lawmaker Ted Failon is so outraged that Belmonte wont re-align his budget and would rather wait for the subsidies coming from the national government whose top priorities are the less progressive cities.

“Magpakatotoo tayo. ‘Yung mga nagyayabang na sila ang pinakamayan na city ‘pag walang kalamida.’Pag may kalamidad, kailangan namin ang tulong, nasaan na ang gobyerno. ‘Pag may kalamidad, iba na ang usapan,” Said Failon on his radio on DZMM.
Failon is so dumbfounded as to why Belmonte wont make the necessary realignment of Quezon city’s budget when she herself when she was then the Vice Mayor presided over the realignment of P1.673 billion in QC’s budget for a less pressing concern like makeover of the offices of the politicians in the City Hall and the beautification project of QC’s sidewalks.

Failon explains that the mayor’s office received P504 million and the engineering department P571 million while allocating P264 million for fixtures (tables and chairs) and P331 million for furniture.
“Ito ang bilis n’yo magpasa ng suppemental budget tapos ito pangangailangan ng inyong constituents, kesyo ganito, kesyo ganyan,” said Failon.
Failon further stressed that the mayor should have been very steadfast in putting a halt in any beautification projects like painting sidewalks and putting up “Welcome to QC” signs and instead favor food subsidies for the residents of her city so they will be forced to stay home and not look for work.
Failon said even QC’s barangays were among the richest in the country with their internal revenue allotments much bigger than a third-class municipality, such as Barangay Pasong Tamo (P144 million), Barangay Commonwealth (P133 million), Barangay Batasan (P109 million), and Barangay Holy Spirit (P74 million). “Irealign n’yo kesa magpatayo pa kayo ng paso!” said Failon.
