Barangay officials of Talon-Talon led by Chairman Munib Yusop expressed deep gratitude to District 2 Rep. Erbie A. Fabian after the latter motored to their barangay last Sunday and presented their Phil Health cards.

The Phil Health coverage extended to the barangay officials includes members of the barangay tanod, the Barangay Intelligence Network of BINs, social and health workers and other barangay extension workers.

Fabian, who for the 2nd consecutive day spearheaded the distribution of CFL bulbs in the same barangay under the Department of Energy’s PEEP or (Philippines Energy Efficiency Program), assured Yusop and the barangay officialdom that his Phil health coverage program have them prioritized even as he assured the newest coverage period extends to 2013.

He said barangay officials need to be provided with Phil health coverage as most don’t have medical assistance facilities available to them when they get sick or meet medical emergencies.

He extolled barangay officials to continue extending help and service to their constituents citing they are the frontliners to the people and play vital roles in local governance.

Rep. Fabian, a day earlier made a similar turnover to Santa Catalina Barangay Chairman Belman Malandi of a similar Phil Health coverage for barangay officials and workers.

The solon added, he continuous to work in getting funds and programs for projects that will benefit the over 68 barangays of the east coast for its officials, workers and the residents and vowed support to their various projects and programs in their respective barangays.

Meantime, the solon’s staff served Talon Talon residents the whole day Sunday in distributing free CFL bulbs for household use.

The 2nd Congressional District Office was tapped by the Department of Energy to be its partner in the nationwide PEEP program launched last Saturday.
Fabian’s Congressional staff at Talon Talon was headed by Political and Barangay Affairs Officer Junie Camins, assisted by staff members Bong Casimiro, Jimmy Falcasantos and Maricor Arcillas.

Also present during last Sunday’s affair in Talon Talon was the solon’s Chief aide Abigail Bucoy-Marquez and his support staff.
