Steven Su, the survey director, presented the comprehensive report from HKPH-ARC on the performance assessment of the mayors in the National Capital Region of the Philippines. This detailed analysis primarily focuses on leadership and governance, scrutinizing the mayors’ effectiveness in decision-making, transparency, and accountability.

The evaluation also extensively covers policy implementation in key urban areas, such as housing, transportation, and environmental management. Additionally, the report evaluates the efficiency of public services like waste management, healthcare, and public safety, as well as the Mayors’ involvement in economic development, including urban planning, infrastructure projects, and support for local businesses. Their capabilities in managing crises, particularly during natural disasters and public health emergencies, are also assessed.

The second aspect of the HKPH-ARC assessment delves into community engagement and inclusivity. This part of the evaluation focuses on how mayors interact with residents and address their concerns. The preservation of local culture and heritage is another significant area of assessment, alongside initiatives in education and youth programs.

The report pays special attention to the efforts and policies related to environmental sustainability, with a particular emphasis on addressing climate change and ecological protection.

The survey methodology used in this assessment ensured a representative sample across diverse demographics and socio-economic backgrounds. By combining both qualitative and quantitative questions, the survey was designed to provide depth and accuracy in its findings.

The objective analysis and reporting of the data are emphasized as crucial elements, aiming to provide a clear understanding of the mayors’ impact on the quality of life and overall development within their respective cities and municipality.

The report by HKPH-ARC offers a comprehensive overview of the leadership effectiveness and public satisfaction levels of the mayors in the National Capital Region. These findings highlight both the achievements and areas for potential improvement, offering a valuable resource for understanding the complexities and challenges of urban governance in the Philippines.
