The city government here will continue to support the education sector as education is one of the priority thrusts of the Climaco Administration aside from security and health.

Mayor Isabelle “Beng” Climaco during her recent State of the City Report said 20 new school buildings were constructed and 24 others were rehabilitated/improved in 2013.

She acknowledged that the accomplishment started at the time of then Mayor Celso Lobregat, now congressman, and that her administration continued where Lobregat left off.

“We continue the thrusts previously started knowing fully well that the realization of these projects will greatly benefit the children of Zamboanga,” the lady mayor said.

Climaco said her vision to “make the children’s future a reality today” remains to be her administration’s clarion call and that the local government will continue to take steps - big and small - to realize this vision for the young sector.

She also bragged of the mini-grandstand and a covered walk the local government had turned-over to the Zamboanga State College of Marine Science and Technology (ZSCMST) during her second day of office back in July 2013. She said the said projects were funded through the Congressional Priority Development Fund and the CDF of Councilor Ramos, respectively.— Jocelyn P. Alvarez
