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.

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.
