Mayor Vico Sotto earns more admiration for not taking credit for Pasig City’s scholarship program

He said these scholars should’ve no debt of gratitude, especially to politicians because they are just using the taxpayer’s money.

On November 6, the Pasig City scholars had their General Assembly via the Zoom video-conferencing application.

With this, Mayor Vico Sotto left a remark that drew the admiration of netizens.

He said these scholars should’ve no debt of gratitude, especially to politicians because they are just using the taxpayer’s money.

The Pasig Mayor also said that though he appreciates those who sent a message of thanks to him, he feels uncomfortable taking credit from these projects funded through taxes people have paid.

Netizens praised Vico for this unusual act which is truly different from other politicians who take full credit from tax-funded projects.

Journalist Jeff Canoy wishes to send a copy of this message to all politicians.

Columnist Francis Baraan IV had a comparison between Vico and President Rodrigo Duterte, who labeled taxpayer’s money as ‘his’ money.

He also has been consistent in reminding that the city projects are possible because of the taxpayers.

When he awarded Pasig Scholars who graduated with Latin honors he reminded them about the taxpayer’s role in their education.

Moreover, Pasig City was hailed as the best LGU to share best practices for the treatment of COVID-19 by the Department of Health.



These are just some of the evidence of how good Vico is as a leader. He should be a role model to every politician and remind them to serve with a heart and to walk the talk.
