“El maga proyecto ta implimenta na maga barangay incluhido ya aqui na Pasobolong ay beneficia gayot con el maga constituente—joven man o de edad, rico man o pobre o maskin cosa pa di ila fe [these projects implemented in the barangays including here in Pasobolong will redound to the benefits of the constituents—young and old, rich or poor and whatever faith they belong]”, Francisco said after the ceremonial turnover spearheaded by Mayor Lobregat, Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde, Councilors Myra Paz Abubakar, Mike Alavar, VP Elago and Percival Ramos, City Engineer Luis Despalo and staff and guests Jomar Lobregat, former CSWDO Francisco Barredo, former councilor Roel Natividad, FEBARKAZA president Art Onrubia, Urban Poor Homeowners Association President Violeta Alejandro and young entrepreneur BG Guingona.

The 2-storey Pasobolong barangay hall which incorporates the unique characteristic design that reflects the city’s rich and colorful history, is well secured with a fence constructed through the countryside development fund of Vice Mayor Iturralde.
