Speaking before local government employees during the Monday flag-raising ceremony at City Hall, Climaco said the youth of Zamboanga has the capability to be leaders and influence governance.

“I believe in the potentials of our young people. I believe that our young people of Zamboanga City have a stake,” she said during simple ceremonies which recognized the efforts and contributions of different groups and organizations to the Zamboanga Hermosa Festival 2015, including a youth volunteer group composed of students.
