MALAYBALAY CITY – Economy, education and the environment topped the list of issues that voters said should be prioritized by those who will lead the city government in the next three years, according to results of three focus group discussions held in February released this week by Bukidnon News.

The FGD participants listed at least 30 issues conducted by the community news organization as part of the Dialogue Bukidnon: Piliay 2013, a documentation and research project. Piliay is the Cebuano word for elections.

The economic issues include housing for the poor, capital for farmers, regulation of motorcabs and multi-cabs, pricing mechanism to protect farmers, poverty, unemployment, relocation projects for marginalized groups, and low interest rates for commercial and agricultural loans.

For education and human resource development, the issues of the prevalence of dropouts and child labor stood out.

Protection of the city’s remaining pine forests, upland farming that has encroached into protected areas, mining, logging, waste management and disasters were among the environmental issues cited.
