In his inaugural speech, Malapitan vowed to further improve the services of the local government.

“Sa pagkakaisa nating lahat, alam ko na hindi ko lang ipagpapatuloy at papantayan kundi pagsisikapan kong higitan pa ang nagawa ni Mayor Oca sa Caloocan (With our unity, I know that I will not only continue and match but try to surpass what Mayor Oca had done in Caloocan),”he said.

“Pagbaba ko ng entablado, magsisimula na ang tunay na kampanya ni Along Malapitan — ang kampanya ng pagseserbisyo at malasakit (When I go down the stage, Along Malapitan’s real campaign will begin — the campaign of service and concern),”he added.

Malapitan instructed Caloocan Police chief Col. Samuel Mina to present to him the city’s public enemies and to ensure that there is sufficient police presence in every community.

“Kay Caloocan Police chief Col. Samuel Mina, iharap niyo sa akin ang mga public enemy sa lungsod. Nais ko rin na palaging visible ang ating mga kapulisan para maging panatag ang mga mamamayan ng Caloocan (To Caloocan Police chief Col. Samuel Mina, present to me the public enemies in the city. I also want our police to always be visible so that the people of Caloocan will feel safe),” Malapitan said.

“Sabi ko nung panahon ng kampanya, mabait si Along pero huwag niyo akong subukan sa droga. Lilinawin ko lang, ang mga biktima ay ipapagamit natin sa ating rehabilitation center habang ang mga tulak naman ay hindi ko sasantuhin (I said during the campaign, Along is kind but don’t try me on drugs. I want to make it clear, we will send the victims to our rehabilitation center while drug pushers will not be tolerated),” he added.

Mayor-elect Malapitan served the city for 15 years as barangay chairman, city councilor, and 1st District congressman.

Vice Mayor-elect Karina Teh, 1st District Representative Mayor Oscar “Oca” Malapitan, and members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod also took their oath.
