DAVAO City Mayor Sara Duterte-Car­pio re­ceived 90.87 per­cent rat­ing from the pub­lic for her ad­min­is­tra­tion in the city based on the re­sult of a sur­vey con­ducted by the Univer­sity of Min­danao - In­sti­tute of Pop­u­lar Opin­ion from Oc­to­ber 11 to Oc­to­ber 21.

Dr. Adrian Ta­mayo of UM-IPO bared this to mem­bers of the me­dia dur­ing the Kape­han sa Dabaw at The An­nex of SM City Davao yes­ter­day.

The pub­lic's grade of

the mayor nears su­pe­rior.

"It's al­ready very good, how­ever, it fell short of be­com­ing cum laude in the par­lance of the academe. Taas pero ku­lang pa maybe it's be­cause she is only one year in the ser­vice," Ta­mayo said.

They con­ducted the sur­vey in spe­cific group of per­sons wherein the LGBT or third sex gave the high­est rat­ing at 92.16 com­pared to male and fe­male coun­ter­parts with 90.88 and 90.87, re­spec­tively, on the ser­vices of the cur­rent ad­min­is­tra­tion. The se­nior cit­i­zens gave her 91.30, while the wid­owed and the sep­a­rated rat­ing is at 92.30.

By in­come class, the very rich, Class A, pro­vided the high­est grade (92.30) com­pared to other in­come classes. Ac­cord­ing said that even the rich who do not reg­u­larly avail of the city gov­ern­ment's ser­vices gave high rat­ing to the mayor. It was fol­lowed by Class D with 90.89 while Class E, C and B has com­mon re­sult at 90.87.

For the ed­u­ca­tional back­ground, those who reached ad­vanced ed­u­ca­tion posted the high­est grade at 92.80. Those who fin­ished ele­men­tary ed­u­ca­tion scored 90.91 while those who com­pleted a vo­ca­tional course rated her 92.66. Those with High School ed­u­ca­tion rated her 90.88 whole those with col­lege ed­u­ca­tion scored 90.87.

"It thus seem that the ser­vices of the Sara ad­min­is­tra­tion made mas­sive cov­er­age, mak­ing it the gov­ern­ment of the marginal­ized (third sex, se­nior cit­i­zens and the sep­a­rated/wid­owed), yet the rich and the tal­ented can also de­pend on," Ta­mayo said.

Dur­ing the sur­vey, they also ac­cu­mu­lated some sug­ges­tions that the gov­ern­ment should fo­cus on in­clud­ing those in far-flung barangays (in­for­ma­tion, bud­get and con­tin­u­a­tion of started projects); im­prove traf­fic sit­u­a­tion through road widen­ing and coastal road and ra­tio­nal­iza­tion of space for street ven­dors; com­put­er­i­za­tion of gov­ern­ment sys­tem and easy-to-com­ply re­quire­ments for schol­ar­ship; and sup­port to se­nior cit­i­zens.

The re­spon­dents also rec­om­mended sub­sidy to small farm­ers; im­prove­ment of drainage; re­li­able wa­ter sup­ply and putting up wa­ter sup­ply in Mar­ilog; sup­port to health cen­ters through pro­vi­sion of equip­ment; sup­port to mi­cro en­ter­prises and more liveli­hood train­ings for the un­em­ployed and non-work­ing moth­ers and con­cern for the street-dwellers, beg­gars and chil­dren.
