Legacion vows to bring close to the people the city government and to create a more enabling and more empowering environment for the Nagueños, captured in his administration's slogan "Nalalaoman. Nasasarigan. Nangangataman." (Reliable. Dependable. Caring). His leadership directions focus on making Naga a self-reliant and caring city.

Robredo, wherein he successfully represented Naga from an ejectment case, which, if lose, would have cost hundreds of millions of pesos to the Nagueños or, worst, crippled the functions of the government.
