Taking time out from his campaign sortie, Mayor Celso Lobregat yesterday turned over to residents of Talon-talon the expanded and improved health and wellness center intended to help accelerate delivery of health services in the area.

Costing P2.6M, the health and wellness center  is only one of the countless projects costing over a hundred million pesos initiated in Talon-talon by the City Government since improving financial condition in 2007.

Mayor Celso Lobregat said Talon-talon is one of the barangays that is very near to his heart given the tremendous projects implemented in the area.

Dr. Rodel Agbulos, City Health Officer affirmed that Talon-talon is second nature to Mayor Lobregat citing the chief executive’s concern and involvement during the preparation of the plans for the newly-completed health center.

Agbulos stressed the construction of health centers forms part of the city’s thrust to maintain quality health care vis-a-vis its vision to have a disease-free city or “un ciudad sin enfermedad”.

Munib Yusop, Talon-Talon barangay chairman, thanked Mayor Lobregat and the City Government in general for the tremendous projects poured into his barangay.

The projects that included school buildings, barangay hall, covered court, community police action center and many others have huge impact on the lives of the constituents, according to Yusop. “Bien grande gayot di amon gratitud  con el gobierno local bajo na liderato di Mayor Lobregat cay el barangay de Talon-talon bien apiki gayot na su Corazon”.

Aside from Agbulos, assisting Lobregat during the turnover yesterday were Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde, Councilors Percival Ramos, Mike Alavar, Eddie Saavedra and guests—Art Onrubia, BG Guingona and Elong Natividad—council aspirants under the administration party’s Team PNoy and numerous others.

From Talon-Talon, the mayor and party yesterday proceeded to San Jose Gusu Elementary School to also unveil another project—a covered court inside the school campus. — Sheila Covarrubias
