Mike Rama takes leave
Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama is currently on a weeklong respite in an undisclosed location in the country with his family.
His family vacation was supposed to have taken place in the last week of December last year, Rama told reporters Monday.
He said that it was canceled due to the city government’s preparations for the Sinulog Festival. (https://bit.ly/3wt5Y27)
Vice Mayor Raymond Alvin Garcia will serve as acting mayor in Rama’s absence.
The mayor will be back in the city on Sunday, January 29.
Rama stated that he will not leave the country, but that he and his family will only stay on “another island,” which he did not name for security reasons.
“That will bring a notion to everybody, ‘Do not look for your mayor.’ But since I will [still] be in the Philippines, as long as the signal is not cut, I will still be connected,” he also said.
