Daly City names TFC ‘Mayor’s Business of the Year’
DALY CITY, California – Mayor Juslyn Manalo named TFC (The Filipino Channel) “Mayor’s Business of the Year,” during the recent installation of newly-elected City Councilmembers at the City Council Chambers of Daly City’s Civic Center.
Manalo said TFC not only provides entertainment reflecting Filipino culture and values, but has also partnered with the Daly City government for the Filipino American History Month celebration “and it’s wonderful to partner with a business that cares about the community. We see a long-term partnership with The Filipino Channel and it’s an honor to present this award to them.”
ABS-CBN Global Head of Corporate Affairs & PR Nerissa Fernandez accepted the award on behalf of Global COO Olivia De Jesus and North and Latin America Managing Director Jun Del Rosario. Fernandez said, “Daly City provided us a business environment wherein we could freely put into practice our cherished corporate values.”
In attendance at the ceremonies were California State Senator Scott Wiener and Assemblymember Philip Ting of the California Legislature, both of whom also presented TFC with Certificates of Recognition.
Fernandez stressed the significance of beingnamed Mayor’s Business of the Year in Daly City, the largest city in San Mateo County, saying, “Our business is not removed from the living, breathing community it operates in. What we do or not do in and with the community matters. As newly inducted Daly City Councilman Rod Daus-Magbual said, ‘My father taught me to look at Daly City as my garden. If you take care of the plants, the plants will take care of you.’”
Other attendees of the Special Meeting of the City Council were Congresswoman Jackie Spier, San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa, former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown. Other awards given out by the city are the Citizen of the Year, Commissioner of the Year, and Youth of the Year.
