They've cleaned up the sidewalk of Tabunok

Finally they've cleaned the sidewalk of Tabunok. Gone are the vendors whose merchandise occupy not only the sidewalk but also the side of the streets. But will this continue? I learned this is a project of Vice-Mayor Belleza. Usually a politician has a "soft" heart for sidewalk vendors. He fears the loss of their votes. But this VM has the guts. He won at the last election as an independent. So he must have a pretty solid constituent without relying on the street vendors.
He has also waged a campaign of making tricycle drivers wear shoes at work. Good work, VM.
