Mayor Celso Lobregat yesterday led in the blessing and inauguration of the newly constructed barangay hall costing P4.2 million in Sinubong, bringing to P24.09 million worth of various projects that the city government has implemented in said barangay since 2007.

The two-storey barangay hall with modern architectural design was undertaken by GAM Construction Company in the amount P4,187,240.09. It was constructed on the two-hectare property bought by the city government during the incumbency of the late Mayor Maria Clara L. Lobregat with then barangay Chairman Ramon Soler.

In his message, Lobregat urged the barangay officials of Sinubong headed by Chairman Rolando Soler to take good care of their new barangay hall even as he reiterated his wish now that he is on his third term that hopefully the next mayor will have the same vision and concerns as he and his mother had for Zamboanga City.

“I hope the next mayor will have the same vision and concern for children and that our children will be protected,” Lobregat told the people of Sinubong, and urged them not to be mesmerized gold and to help ensure that the forthcoming elections will not be influence by the 3Gs (guns, gold and goons).

Meanwhile, Lobregat’s administration has implemented a total of P24,092,763.30 worth of various projects in Sinubong since 2007, most of which were farm-to-market roads, slope protection, school building and related projects.
