Cainta: from Town to City?

Heard from the news that Rizal Gov. Casimiro Ynares III is pushing for the conversion of Cainta and Taytay towns into cities within the year in the wake of a Supreme Court decision favoring the conversion of 16 municipalities into cities despite not meeting the income requirement.

But Ynares also said the application of the two towns would also depend on the outcome of the local elections, assuming that the elected representatives and executives would favor it. ( I bet no one will object to that )

Surely, this is good news for me and to my fellow CaintaƱos after we experienced the wrath of Ondoy last September 2009. At least, people from the upper government acknowledged the improvement of our town, made us to reach the annual income requirement of Php100 million. Hopefully, if Cainta turned into a city, it will be given a consequently more funds for local projects.
