Have concerns? Osmeña tells constituents to text him


Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña wants his constituents to directly tell him their concerns by just texting him.

The mayor publicly posted his cellphone number in his Facebook page, saying that he actually received several concerns such as where to find drug dealers or even theft of chairs.

“My cell number is 0917 329 9999. People have texted me about everything from where to find their local drug dealer to scheduling an appointment for civil marriage to their neighbor stealing their monoblock chairs,” Osmeña said.

Osmeña said that this is in line with his promise to listen to his constituents during his 2017 State of the City Address (SOCA).

“As I said during the SOCA, I cannot promise to answer all texts, but I do promise to read them all,” he said.
