Dr. Paul Martinez, a global affairs analyst and the executive director of RPMD, explained that the survey encompassed a comprehensive evaluation of the mayors’ performance.

Martinez emphasized that the strong performance of the top-performing mayors in the first quarter of 2024 highlights their robust leadership and their ability to address the dynamic needs of their communities. He specifically mentioned Mayor Olivarez’s effective approach to programs and projects for his constituents, as well as his prompt response to various calamity situations in the city, despite a slight drop in his job performance rating from December 27, 2023, to January 5.
