September 30, 2021

The Department of the Interior and Local Government joins the Metro Manila Development Authority and the Pasay City Government in mourning the passing of Atty. Dennis Acorda, Pasay City Administrator.

Atty. Acorda was Pasay City Administrator for 11 years which began during the term of Mayor Antonino Calixto and continued under incumbent Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano. He previously served as City Administrator of Malabon City.

The Pasay City Government has lost a committed public servant who has dedicated the best years of his life in the service of the people of Pasay especially at this time of pandemic. His memory lives on in the lives of the people whose lives he has touched in the name of public service.

We extend our deepest condolences to his wife, Lissa, and the entire Acorda family at this most difficult time. Rest in peace, Atty. Acorda.
