Public Feedback


Dear Chairman Tolentino,

This is a much-delayed appreciation for the wonderful work you’re doing in MMDA. I have seen real, logical and consistent implementation of traffic rules, and lessening of “kotong” traffic enforcers (at least here in Makati), greener roads and bridges and a much more intelligent, resolute, and steadfast determination to reduce Metro Manila’s physical problems. Even the monster buses – the bullies of the road – are getting discipline!

Everyone I know finds the billboards unsightly, but is seems that only under your watch has the MMDA been able to fight this visual blight. The city’s greenery is also more plentiful and in fact, they are thriving, compared to the spare anemic plants of past years. I see that public funds are being put to good use everywhere.

Please know that you have made countless lines brighter by your zeal and commitment to the public good. You and the people under you deserve kudos.

Mabuhay kayo at ang MMDA!

God Bless you.

It's wonderful news that government through MMDA, is doing something big to clean up air pollution that has been responsible and continues to be responsible for a lot of lung and heart diseases. Babies and children are especially vulnerable to the toxics from vehicle emissions.

Let's have more good news like this one! Mr. Tolentino, we are behind you in this campaign against horrific billboards and toxic pollution of the cities of our affection!

Thank you. I wish to acknowledge MMDA for this early Christmas gift and for attempting to solve the problem in EDSA. I am sincerely hoping that you can do something about the public transportation in EDSA as well because their violations are part of the major contributors of traffic.

I also hope I can contact you here to relay any questions I might get in the future about the Mabuhay lanes. I wish to add value to people's lives through blogging and I want to communicate that we can all do something to contribute to a better country. I just heard that there is a group forming First World Philippines. There is actually hope for this country if we will all work together.

The red lights at the said intersection have all been replaced and are now working, thanks. There are still 2 lights though whose yellow lights are still busted. I hope they can be replaced soon.

thank you again for your immediate reply. Just my way of helping MMDA solve the traffic problems along EDSA.. i am happy to see the bus operators on the news being asked about their strike.. di dapat tayo takot sa mga yan... MMDA should show them that even without them on EDSA, kaya ng MMDA ....

will write to you again if i notice things that can be easily fixed...

Last Sunday, Nov. 07, 2010, at around 9:30 AM, while driving down EDSA, I noticed that there was something wrong with my car. Fortunately, just before the Forbes park gate, there wer four men from the MMDA. Unfortunately, I have lost the paper onwhich I listed their names. This is such a pity because I would like to recommend them for their courteous and generous action. They gave first aid to the car and refused any monetary reward.

At these times, when all you hear is talk about how corrupt government people are, I am so grateful that there are four men who believe in service to their fellow man.

Thanking you for your kind attention.

On behalf of the Bahay Nakpil-Bautista Foundation, I would like to commend your rapid reaction in deploying the Flood Control Sewerage and Management Office and their crew who did a great job of dredging the Estero de Quiapo from Escaldo to FR Hidalgo Streets upon our request, and through your initiative, up to Arlegui Street.

Until your work from September 27, the Estero had been blocked for months with accumulated garbage and various wastes posing health hazards to the neighborhood. But thanks to your effective effort, these have been removed and the estero dredged. The strong stench has been greatly reduced as well.

As you have pointed out, garbage from illegal settlers will still remain a problem. However I am confident that MMDA has, and will put into effect, a regular schedule that will prevent a high build up such as what happened.

Again, thank you and please extend our thanks to those who made this possible.

Thank you so much, this helped me a lot..MMDA is not so bad, even though I've been given a ticket before and stopped by an enforcer once to many, but I know its for the us to learn. Keep up the good job!

Mabuhay po! Malaking tulong po ang ginawang pagpapaluwang ng drainage! Syempre po mas bibilis ang pagbaba ng tubig kaya ngayon hindi na gaya ng dati na konting ulan lang e baha agad. Maraming salamat po!
