Isko leads opening of Linear Park

Manila Mayor Francisco 'Isko Moreno' Domagoso led the launching of Linear Park along Baseco Baywalk, including its lighting and landscaping works.

Domagoso said that the launching of the Linear Park, as well as the installation of lamp posts and brick paving works done is a "simple offering" of the local government to the Baseco community.

While the city government gives dignity to the lower class through the said project, Domagoso said that maintaining the beauty of the rehabilated portion of Baseco needs the public's cooperation.

"Ngayong gabi na ito ay ipinakita lamang sa inyo ng pamahalaang lungsod ang pagbabalik o pagbibigay ng dignidad na kahit tayo ay mahirap, kahit tayo ay iskwater, may dignidad sa pagiging mahirap. Hindi pwedeng passing lang kung sabihin," the Mayor said.

"Ipapakita natin na may gobyerno, na may pamamahala, at ang pamamahala ay may pagmamalasakit pero may kaakibat na disiplina sa atin. Kapag tayo ay nililingon na ng pamahalaan, ang pakikipagtulungan natin sa pamahalaan ay pakikiisa sa pagsasaayos," Domagoso added.

Domagoso said that despite being tagged as one of the most challenging communities in the nation's capital, the Baseco community must prove that they have discipline within themselves.

"Tayo ang nagdadala ng karakter ng ating komunidad, nasa kamay natin. Ipapakita natin sa kanila na 'Oo, iskwater kami. Oo, mahirap kami, pero kami ay disiplinado at may pangarap sa buhay na makaangat sa aming kinalalagyan.'," Domagoso said.

"Huwag niyong dumihan ang inyong paligid kasi yan reflection ng pagkatao natin. Ayokong tayo ay mamaliitin dahil tayo ay mahirap. Gusto ko may dignidad sa pagiging mahirap dahil tayo ay tao rin," he added.

The Mayor also warned criminals to stop their wrongdoings as the government will continue to search for them for the benefit of the general public.

Domagoso was joined by Manila City Vice Mayor Maria Sheilah 'Honey' Lacuna-Pangan, City Engineer Armand Andres, City Electrician Randy Sandac, and other local officials of the city.
