Angel Locsin lauded the “sense of accountability” of Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong. He recently resigned as contact tracing czar over the violation of health protocols during a party that he had attended.
Locsin shared a photo of her having a meeting with Magalong about Covid-19 vaccines. She cited how the mayor strictly followed health rules during their meeting.
“I know he’s all over the news lately, so, I just want to share our experience with him. He reminded us to wear our masks and face shields and to respect the locals by following safety protocols.”
“He also wore his mask the whole time. Just putting this here not to justify pero para may ibang side naman 🙂 , Locsin added
“Ang refreshing makita sa balita na may accountability at sense of honor ang isang opisyal para aminin ang pagkakamali. Kelangan natin ng mga ganito. Also, magaling siya,” Locsin further said.
(It is refreshing to see in the news that there is a sense of accountability and sense of honor of an official to confess that he did something wrong. We need these kinds of officials. He is a good official.)
Several persons at the party, including Yap and Magalong’s wife, were seen without their masks on.
On Thursday, Yap and KC Concepcion were charged with P1,500 fines over health violations committed during the party while Magalong’s wife paid a P1,000 fine.
