District 2 Congresswoman-elect and incumbent Councilor Lilia Nuño yesterday urged all Zamboangueños to move on and discuss what’s best for the city of Zamboanga.

In an interview, Nuño said her immediate priority is to sit down with her constituents from the different barangays in the second district and to reconcile with her political opponents.

“Now that election is over, let us sit down and discuss what is best for the city,” Nuño said. “Politics is over, election is over, so sinta kita juntu, discuti kita cosa para bien del ciudad.”

Nuño added that she will support the city’s top officials including Mayor-Elect Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar and District 1 Congressman-Elect Celso Lobregat for the sake of harmony and development in the city because the election is over.

She said that she will also ask for the help of Lobregat who is more senior and knowledgeable in congress.

“Mas grande dimiyo distrito, ele tiene ya ele el bastante experiencia pwede le cumigo ayuda, ensinya cumigo cosa yo debe ase para na buen del miyo district being senior and very experienced person,” Nuño said.

(My district is bigger, he has enough experience he can help me, teach me what should I do for the good of my district)

To the new mayor, Nuño said she is very optimistic and expressed support in working with Mayor-Elect Climaco-Salazar, as both of them are women.

“Trabaha kame juntu, man support yo cunel suyu projects trabaha kame juntu para bien del diatun ciudad, this is fuerza de las mujeres.” Nuño said.

(We will work together, I will support her projects, we will work together for the good of our city)       

Nuño also expressed thanks to everyone who supported her during the election last May 13, giving her more than 33,000 votes where she ran under Fuerza Zamboanga.

According to Nuño, she will stick to her advocacies which is Health, Education, Livelihood, and Peace and Order (HELP).

“I will look for more funds for the Zamboanga City Medical Center, look for additional funds coming from the senators, more scholarships, livelihood trainings and additional fund for the burial assistance,” she continued.

The term of Nuño as a councilor in District 2 will end on June 30, 2013. Her district covers 61 Barangays with 194,761 registered voters.
