Samsam Gullas strikes deal with Labella, Cortes to solve Cebu traffic


These three newbie mayors are putting their heads together to solve city traffic once and for all.

Mayor Gerald Anthony “Samsam” Gullas of Talisay gave a glimmer of hope about easing the bumper-to-bumper traffic in Cebu.

It won’t be just him on this crucial goal. Lucky for him, two other mayors whom he got to talk to during their crash course on local government are on board. He is teaming up with Cebu City’s Edgar Labella and Mandaue’s Jonas Cortes.

Another item on their agenda: flooding.

“The three of us agreed that there is a need for an inter-city response to solve both problems,” Gullas said. “We hope as newly elected mayors of our respective cities to cooperate especially that traffic and flooding cannot be solved by individual efforts alone.”
