San Fernando City Mayor Dong Gualberto on March 1 reminded residents that nobody owns the city but the people.
The San Fernando politiko was slapped by a 90-day preventive suspension by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).
The preventive suspension was due to the alleged misuse of public funds in the rehabilitation of the city’s plaza.
The Court of Appeals’ (CA) earlier reversed the Ombudsman’s dismissal order against him.
“Anumang pagsubok ang ating harapin, lagi niyo sanang tandaan na daytoy siyudad ti San Fernando ket San Fernando Tayo,” Gualberto said.
“Walang sino man ang nagmamay-ari nito kundi kayo, ang taumbayan. Sa huli, nasa inyo ang kapangyarihan upang magpasya para sa ating minamahal na San Fernando,” he added.
