House Deputy Speaker and District I Representative Beng Climaco pursues legislative work and district projects with more vigor and enthusiasm, as she fulfills her mandate to help alleviate the plight of the constituents.

Following her declaration of her bid for mayor in 2013 last June 27, Cong. Climaco continues her project inauguration, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) programs and legislative work in her District and in Congress.

Very recently, the lady solon graced the TESDA graduation at barangay Baliwasan where participants earned certificates for their beauty care training. The program was part of her livelihood skills training for women including men in the barangays implemented in partnership with the TESDA local office.

“When we announced our bid for mayor, we wanted to set the record straight to respond to those who had been clamoring for an answer. Now, let me do my tasks as representative of District 1 and Deputy Speaker in Congress. I have to finish a lot of projects and there are bills waiting to be filed and acted upon as soon as session resumes”, the congresswoman stated.

Cong. Climaco has scheduled inauguration and turnover activities in District 1 which have to be accomplished while the House of Representatives is still on recess.

“We had been trying to accommodate all invitations for interviews amidst our hectic schedules, but I hope everyone will understand that we are also making sure that we deliver our projects and programs in the barangays and likewise be physically present there”, she added.

On June 27, the congresswoman broke ground for the P6million park dubbed “Parque de Sta. Maria” at a vacant lot fronting Bahay Bulilit near the Edwin Andrews Air Base in Sta. Maria.

The park is dedicated to the memory of the first Sta. Maria barangay chairperson the late Adelaida Lacandalo and all the officials of the barangay. The park is intended to be a recreational place for senior citizens and young children.

The project is being undertaken through the initiative of Cong. Climaco with the cooperation and support of Sta. Maria barangay chairman Justo Lacandalo and members of the barangay council and the city government of Zamboanga.

It will cost P6 million to be taken from the congresswoman’s priority development assistance fund (PDAF).

The ground breaking ceremony was highlighted by the congresswoman’s declaration of her bid for mayor in 2013. — Marvin Segura
