Caloocan City Mayor Dale Gonzalo “Along” Malapitan personally led the groundbreaking ceremony for the new campus of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) at the Rainbow Village, Deparo on Friday, October 20.

Mayor Along expressed his excitement over the new PUP-Caloocan Campus as it is one of his pet projects back when he was still a congressman and reiterated that the said project represents his administration’s commitment in improving the quality of education in the city.

“Ang PUP-Caloocan ay bunga po ng aking pagod noong congressman pa lamang ako kaya siguro naman ay maiintindihan ng lahat kung bakit proud na proud ako na sa wakas, ito na, uumpisahan na natin ang napakagandang proyekto na ito,” the City Mayor said.

“It is our duty to see to it that everyone will have an easy access to education which is a basic right of every citizen. We believe that PUP-Caloocan will be one of our best instruments to fulfill this responsibility,” he added.

Mayor Along likewise highlighted the positive effects that the new campus will bring to various aspects of city development.

“With PUP rising on this very ground, sigurado ako, magsusulputan na ang mga negosyo at magkakaroon na rin ng dagdag kabuhayan ang mga tao sa lugar na ito. Eksakto din na malapit-lapit sa lokasyon na ito ang mga itatayo nating pabahay para sa mga Batang Kankaloo,” the Mayor stated.

The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by key city officials including District 1 Representative Cong. Oscar “Oca” Malapitan, as well as current PUP President Dr. Manuel Muhi.
