The Fernandos Turn Over The City To New Mayor

Before Bayani Fernando became MMDA Chairman and eventually ran for Philippine Vice-President, he served as Mayor of Marikina from 1992 to 2001.  His wife, Marides Fernando replaced him as Mayor in 2001 and was re-elected in 2004 and 2007.  Both Fernandos have made a huge impact on the city which enjoyed progress and growth throughout the years.
After 18 years of the Fernandos assuming the role of Mayor, Marides Fernando will officially step down this June 2010 as her term ends.

Comelec hasn't declared the official winner for the 2010 elections but Congressman Del de Guzman who is running for the position of Mayor commands a good lead of votes.

We hope that whoever may succeed the Fernandos will continue to pursue the city's best interests in the name of progress and cityhood.  To the Fernandos, thank you for serving Marikina City.  To de Guzman, we welcome you as the next mayor of Marikina.
