“It’s more fun to be in city hall”, was the punctuation of a state of the city report delivered by District 2 Rep. Erbie A. Fabian as he reiterated his desire to be the city’s next mayor during yesterday’s State of the City Report held at the city multi- purpose hall in the Paseo del Mar Complex.

Rep. Fabian wraps up a fruitful 9 years in the halls of Congress, serving the people of the city’s east coast with great distinction and has declared, he is ready to face the challenges ahead.

In the state of the city report, the second district solon reported out a body of work that include the delivery of over P300 million worth of funds procured for infrastructure projects to include the building of roads, repairs and rehabilitation of roads, bridges, school buildings, agricultural facilities and equipment hospital facilities, medical supplies and equipment, school facilities, educational materials, scholarships and entrepreneurial and livelihood trainings, medical help and social ameliorations.

He also reported out on his output as a member of Congress in crafting bills which will help improve conditions in his district and the city as a whole.

Topping this is the passage of the Bill creating the Pasonanca Watershed reserve in both houses of Congress and is awaiting finalization into law.

The bill when signed by President Aquino will establish the city’s watershed area into a protected zone safeguarding the city’s vital forest cover which protects its
primary water source.

There are also the bills on the increase in the bed capacity of the Zamboanga City Medical Center from its present 250 to 500 passed by the lower house as well as a bill seeking to establish more courts in the city to address backlogs in dispensing justice and others in various stages of completion.

But more than his work in Congress, the solon believes much has been left undone.

The solon has declared he is gunning for the mayor’s post in the forthcoming polls and believes he can deliver on pressing matters the city is confronted with.

Fabian said he and his team stand on their promise to deliver on a 10-point agenda that will seek to resolve important issues such as peace and order, job opportunities, more investments to the city among others.

“I feel the need to continue on as there is much to be done in our city and I am ready to submit myself and my brand of leadership and type of service to the people of Zamboanga. I think I still have much to give to the people who have supported me all through my long uninterrupted public service from Councilor, to vice mayor to mayor and then to Congress. I am coming full circle as I hope to continue serving you as the next mayor of the city and together we shall achieve what each and every Zamboangueños dream and aspires for,” Fabian said.
