Mayor Celso Lobregat the other day exhorted city government officials and employees to adhere to the ‘5 Cs’ formula that should serve as the hallmark or seal of the present administration in the remaining two years of his third term.

Speaking before city officials and employees after the first Friday mass last July 1, the mayor enumerated the 5 C’s as conscience, commitment, consistency, competence and courage.

Service to the public must be marked by the 5C’s to ensure quality, efficient and effective service to the people, the mayor told the officials and employees attending the mass, which was also graced by District II Congressman Erbie Fabian.

The first Friday mass, July 1st, coincided with the first day of the second year of elected city officials that include the mayor, vice mayor, the two congresspersons and the 16 councilors. It was on July 1, 2010 when the elected officials of the city as well as of other Local Government Units in the country, officially assumed their posts following the May 10 elections. Their three-year term will expire on June 30, 2013.

Mayor Lobregat said all city officials and employees should have conscience for them to know and discern what is right, commitment and consistency for them to do right all the time not just sometimes or some of the time, competence for them to know how to do right and courage so that they can distinguish what is right and popular and do what is always right.

He reiterated that in the next two years of his administration, he will ask more from city government workers but assured that he will not ask anything from the officials and employees if he himself is not ready to do. “This is leading by example”.

The mayor likewise vowed that he will not rest and relent in the effort to accomplish the projects and programs he had set out to do. “Much has been done and much more will be done”, he stressed. — Sheila Covarrubias
