To City Mayors,

Who respond with focused dispatch to the threat of COVID-19:

By laying out proper medical plan and strengthened medical response to prevent virus transmission and fatalities, one such example is Marikina Mayor Marcy Teodoro;

By boosting the morale of your health frontliners in the form of PPEs, nutritious food, and installing a working mechanism for tight coordination, like Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto;

By ensuring that the food supply within your City is sufficient and the prices are right based on your city action plan, as shown by Manila Mayor Isko Moreno;

By taking care of the food and hygiene needs—like you usually provide them during Christmas season—of your labor force (no-work, no-pay daily earners and vendors), the underprivileged and homeless, who need your kind social services and assistance now more than ever, what Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte is doing;

By being vigorous yet parental in handling the people in quarantine enforcement and checkpoints to ensure their human rights and dignity as the example of Muntinlupa Mayor Jimmy Fresnedi;

By being a moral force, exuding a sober yet gentle presence that can ease the fear and trepidations of the public, as exhibited by San Juan Mayor Francis Zamora and Pasay Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano.

To all of you, in behalf of the Filipinos who need leaders in this time of national emergency, I convey my sincere gratitude for showing us examples, relieving our fears, and providing us guidance and inspiration.

With much respect and esteem,

Sen. Leila
