Sen. Panfilo Lacson on Monday formally feted Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto by sponsoring a Senate resolution commending the young mayor for his anti-corruption achievements.

Lacson sponsored Senate Resolution 660 honoring Sotto for receiving an award from the US State Department as one of the world’s 12 anti-corruption champions.

“Since he won the mayoral race in 2019, Vico Sotto has been demonstrating his steadfast commitment to stopping corruption by eliminating any kickback or bribery in the awarding of city contracts, establishing a 24/7 public information and complaints hotline, and formally involving civil society organizations in the city’s budgeting and policymaking,” he said.

“Mayor Vico has become even more an inspiration to most public leaders with his various proactive and out-of-the-box measures amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Pasig City is also among the cities being eyed for the pilot roll-out of vaccines by the Department of Health, being the first local government unit in the country to have an approved vaccination plan,” he added.

Lacson cited Sotto, nephew of Senate President Vicente Sotto III, for setting the bar high in public service.

He said Pasig residents are lucky to have a leader who “embodies wise thoughts, prudent actions, and selfless intention to advance the well-being of his constituents.”

“I have always emphasized that corruption is the social ill that sucks the lifeblood of our economy and distorts the principle of equal opportunity enshrined in our democratic order,” he said.

“Nevertheless, we find hope in the likes of Mayor Vico Sotto that the younger generation is represented by a public servant who exemplifies good governance, accountability, and integrity in the conduct of his duties. It goes without saying that he is not only a breath of fresh air in Philippine politics, but truly a bright beacon of our beloved Fatherland,” he added.
