Grateful residents of San Roque yesterday warmly welcomed Mayor Celso Lobregat and members of the local Team PNoy, as they expressed support to the party citing the urgent need for unity and continuity in public service.

Lobregat, who is Team PNoy’s District 1 congressional candidate, accompanied by council aspirants under District 1 barnstormed San Roque yesterday and at the same time inspected completed and ongoing infrastructure projects that the City Government has funded.

The projects inspected included the ongoing P6.7M slope protection at the San River, P12.8M 2-storey 12 classroom building at the San Roque Elementary School, P2.2M health center, P1.3M center for elderly, P1.4M community police action center and various drainage system projects—all totalling almost P28 million.

The ongoing 2-storey 12 classroom building is in addition to the two school buildings earlier completed and turned over—a 2-storey 6 classroom building and a 2-storey 8 classroom building which were constructed side by side and technically became a 2-storey 14 classroom building.

Just last September 2012, the City Government turned over the P4.17M barangay hall, slope protection projects, drainage systems and multi-purpose pavement inside the City Abattoir complex where the P19M archive building is also located.

Tagging along City Engineer Luis Despalo and CEO personnel in his project inspections, Lobregat also directed the immediate preparation of plans and estimates for the rehabilitation of another slope protection project in Salum, San Roque.

Mayor Lobregat said San Roque has been a constant recipient of projects and programs from the City Government since time of his late mother Mayor Maria Clara Lobregat. “El San Roque, since the time of Ma’am Caling bien serca gayot na Corazon del gobierno local”.

From 2007 to present, completed and ongoing projects in San Roque have reached P144.16M.
