Manila Bulletin - - Mindanao News - By YAS D. OCAMPO

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.

The LGBT com­mu­nity gave Mayor Duterte the high­est rat­ing of around 92.16%, along­side se­nior cit­i­zens (91.30%), as well as the wid­owed and sep­a­rated (92.30%).

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.
