    According to Artes, the MMDA is close to his heart after serving as the agency’s Assistant General Manager (AGM) for Finance and Administration, General Manager, and Chairman during the term of then-President Rodrigo Duterte.

     He noted that it was during his stint as AGM for Finance and Administration that the agency received an “unqualified opinion from the Commission on Audit for three consecutive years” — the highest audit rating given to government agencies for good financial management.
