alfredo lim's return to manila, a boon or bane?

Sen. Alfredo Lim is back as Mayor of Manila. What do you think?Will it be good for the people of the nation's capital city? Or his return to cityhall would spell the end of Manila as a fun and friendly city? (Mayor-elect Alfredo Lim recently announced he will no longer allow partying along Baywalk)

In my humble opinion, I think it's better to have Lim as the mayor than the dynasty of Atienzas. Former mayor Lito Atienza had a lot beautification projects(baywalk and other manila parks), which are not bad, but come to think of it they have a family owned construction business(figure out where some manila's taxes goes to). With Lim, happy joints might be lessened because of his strict way of reducing crimes and his other ways. Reducing crimes is much better among other things.
