Barangay chairmen, most of them from the city’s east coast, on Friday reiterated support to the administration of Mayor Celso Lobregat, as they expressed appreciation and gratitude to the City Government for the unparalleled projects and programs implemented for the benefit of the barangay folks.

The barangay officials were recipients of the latest batch of 4x4 vehicles released by the City Government for 15 barangays Friday afternoon in front of City Hall. The vehicle is intended for the program dubbed Community, Environment, Livelihood, Security and Order in the villages.

In their individual messages during the turnover, Barangay Chairmen Nestor Atilano of Bungiao, Aurora Solis of Guisao, Rommel Bacasong of Zambowood, Feliciano Revillas of Victoria, Rito de la Cruz of Cacao and Antonio Evangelista of Bolong were one in expressing their all out gratitude to Mayor Lobregat and the City Council members who voted to approve the budget for the purchase of the vehicles.

They all emphasized the impact of the CELSO program on the constituents stressing that it will further accelerate the delivery of service to the people in the barangays.

“Gracias gayot Mayor por este vehiculo. Bien grande ayuda gayot este na dalida de servicio na barangay. Ay continua came suporta con el maga programa y proyecto del di tuyo administracion,” Atilano said in his message.

Solis cited Mayor Lobregat as a trustworthy official, who fulfills his promises or commitment to the people. Unlike other officials and would-be officials, Mayor Lobregat has always been very pro-people and pro-service. “Thank you Mayor and to the members of the City Council supporting the mayor”.

In separate interviews, other barangay officials present during the turnover Friday, said Mayor Lobregat’s unparalleled accomplishments are worthy of praise and admiration. “We will always support him and his programs and projects”.

They said the distribution of vehicles to all barangays and the massive infrastructures that include school buildings, barangay halls, multi-purpose covered courts, road concreting and farm to market roads, slope protection and rip rap and bridges are laudable undertakings not only because they help spur development but also have great impact on the lives of the people—young and old.

The list of barangay-recipients of the vehicles during Friday’s distribution were Bolong, Bunguiao, Cabaluay, Cacao, Calabasa, Guisao, Latuan, Lumbangan, Mercedes, Quiniput, Talabaan, Talon-Talon, Tugbungan, Victoria and Zambowood.

Friday’s distribution brings to a total of 29 mainland barangays that have already received their pick-up vehicles. The others were (first batch) barangays Taluksangay, Sibulao, Tolosa, Tagasilay, Mampang, Mangusu and Lansones; (second batch) Vitali, Licomo, Tictapul and Tigbalabag; (4th batch) Dulian-Upper Bunguiao, Boalan and Culianan.

The distribution was done amid the drizzles in front of City Hall in the presence of the beneficiary barangay officials and other city officials to include Councilors Percival Ramos, Abdurahman Nuño and Rudy Lim together with City Hall Chief Executive Assistant Mario Roca, Executive Assistants Amilpasa “Caloy” Bandaying, Joselito Paragas and Jomar Lobregat. — Sheila Covarrubias
