In Davao City, footwear rule clarified for city council audience

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/26 July) — Those who cannot afford to buy shoes can still attend the sessions of Davao’s city council even if the new vice mayor launched a stricter dress code within her first 30 days in office.
In earlier pronouncements published in local newspapers, however, the city council’s security head was quoted to have said persons wearing slippers shall be barred entry during sessions.

    quoted “to have said persons wearing slippers shall be barred entry during sessions”…….. I know that the new vice mayor is wearing slippers most of the time, even in office to comfort het feet. There is no “sanctity” at all in city council as they have no respect at all for the simple people of the city, so how can we “preserve the sanctity” of the council???? But than elctions are there sooner than this vice mayor and ‘her’ councilers realise?? We will vote on slippers ofcourse, but the result will be the strongest possible!
