Mayor America puts premium on governance that is participatory, in which people are involve in the planning, budgeting and implementation of any development efforts.  She also regards transparency and accountability as valuable in promoting good governance.

Mayor America is also a strong advocate of gender equality.  Her strong advocacy is not because of her being female but rather because of her strong subscription to the saying that “there is no tool for development more powerful that the empowerment of women”.  – Armida M. Concepcion, 2017.
