Mankayan Mayor Frenzel Ayong has promised an equitable distribution of government resources in his term.
The Benguet politiko made the remark after the municipal government distributed six multi-purpose vehicles to upland barangays.
Ayong earlier said the six upland barangays were those who donated vegetable produce during the height of community quarantine.
But he explained that lowland barangays will also receive multi-purpose vehicles this year.
Ayong said the municipal government has already allotted funds for the purchase of the vehicles this 2021.
