In a momentous State of the City Address (SOCA) held at the Caloocan City Sports Complex, Mayor Dale “Gonzalo” Along Malapitan marked the first-year milestones of his administration. This address, which took place on September 20, was a significant occasion for the Mayor to share the remarkable progress made by the city under his leadership.

In his inaugural SOCA, Mayor Along shone a light on the rapid fulfillment of several campaign promises within his first 100 days in office. These early accomplishments included immediate actions to address pressing issues.

However, as the city approaches its one-year mark, the Mayor shifted the focus to ongoing and long-term projects aimed at addressing persistent local concerns. Key areas of attention include education, healthcare, and the local economy.


He assured the citizens, saying, "You can be sure that we will do our best to be consistent in the excellence that we have shown. Hindi po ito titigil pagkatapos lamang ng isang taon. Bagkus, lalampasan pa natin ito at titiyakin makikinabang pa ang mga susunod na henerasyon ng mga Batang Kankaloo (Caloocan residents)."

The Mayor emphasized the city's commitment to various initiatives, such as providing livelihood packages to residents, strengthening healthcare services, improving hospitals and health centers, and prioritizing education. The latter includes offering free tuition at UCC (University of Caloocan City) and continuous support for teachers and public schools.

Throughout his address, Mayor Along expressed his gratitude for the unwavering support of his constituents. He pledged to repay this trust by striving for an even better and more progressive city.

"Sa lahat po ng mga programang ito, ang gusto ko lang, maramdaman ninyo ang aksyon at malasakit na ating ipinangako. Mga kapwa ko lingkod bayan at mga kapwa ko Batang Kankaloo, sa tulong ninyo at sa patnubay ng ating Panginoong Diyos, we will make a difference and we will make great things happen to the historic and great City of Caloocan," declared the Mayor.


This year's SOCA drew a significant audience, including city government employees and officials, along with esteemed representatives, Vice Mayor Karina Teh-Limsico, and members of the Sangguniang Panglungsod (City Council).
