He said “The floodings in the city is not just the probmem of San Fernando but it’s neighboring cities and municipalities as well… we need a flood summit to finally address this issue. ”
Decongestion of waterways to remove waste and improve water flow will need community cooperation, Lazatin added.

Lazatin cited “It is part of the Megalopolis Master Plan na ginawa po ng ating butihing presidente dati ni GMA (Gloria Macapagal Arroyo) pina commission niya kay Palafox ang San Fernando as part of the golden triangle, ibig sabihin San Fernando, Angeles at Mabalacat po”
He also said improved services and access to the regional medical center can be dovetailed with efficient barangay centers where medical tests and free medicines should be immediately given.
According to Lazatin “We need to strengthen our Barangay Health Centers for the convinience of our seniors, PWD and people with simple ailments to be treated right away, they do not need to travel far from their homes.… I believe prevention is better than the cure.”
About online gambling, Lazatin said he will seek clear guidance from concerned national regulatory agencies on how law enforcement can be effectively done.
Lazatin clarified “We cannot go beyond the law…ito po ay baguhan po lahat sa atin… The national government and congress, maybe we can pass a resolution requesting the congress to make this implementing rules and regulation regarding this – kunyari ang minor di puwedeng tumaya and so on and so forth.”
Lazatin said his advantages on experience and track record make him the most qualified to serve as the next mayor of San Fernando, Pampanga.
