DAVAO CITY - Mayor Sara Duterte received a near-superior grade, according to a survey conducted by the University of Mindanao’s (UM) Institute of Popular Opinion (IPO) here.
Mayor Duterte received a grade of 90.87 from a survey of around 1,500 individuals divided equally among the city’s three congressional districts.

From among the income classes, the high income class A gave the highest grade of 92.30%, compared with other income classes.
Those with advanced educational backgrounds also gave Mayor Sara a high 92.8%.
The survey was conducted in October.
However, the survey also yielded comments from various sectors.
Among these were a need to expand attention to far-flung barangays in terms of information, budget, and continuity of started projects.
Citizens also asked the local government to improve the traffic situation around the city via road widening and coastal roads, as well as to address the rationalization of the space for street vendors..
Citizens also asked for computerization of government systems, while scholars seek easy-to-comply with requirements for their scholarship.
Other issues that arose during the survey were support for senior citizens, subsidies for small farmers, improvement of drainage systems, reliable water systems in upland barangays such as Marilog, more support to health centers, support for micro enterprises, and concern for street dwellers.
Meanwhile, the survey also showed that the City Social Services and Development Office (CSSDO) and City Health Office (CHO) had the most well-informed clients about their government services.
