The May 13, 2013, electoral exercise was a concrete expression of the will of the people.
My mandate was not just to make our beloved town more progressive but to make it work as a system of genuine popular participation, to make it meaningful to the lives of the common people by serving them with sincerity and dignity with reason to hope that the future will be better for themselves and their children.
Under this new humble leadership, I have in mind to break the barriers that perpetuate all facets and contributing factors of poverty through unity, solidarity and team work among all concerned sectors of the municipality especially so our marginalized farmers, so that together, we can achieve singularity of purpose in word, in spirit and in action, we will denounce all types of greed and abuses, to bring about efficiency in public service and promote the general welfare, our environment should be improved the unity by fighting against illegal logging, taking care of our garbage and waste, preserving our water and not polluting our air, to savor the charms of clean and green surroundings.
In several instances I always emphasized specially to our officials and employees that as a public servant we should always serve our people with “smile” as we know for a fact that our “BOSS” is our clientele, we are paid by people taxes, they need our respect and due courtesy, as the Code of Public Service requires all government employees must remain true to the people at all times. We must act with justness and sincerity and shall not discriminate anyone especially the poor and underprivileged. We shall at all times respect the rights of others and shall refrain from doing acts, contrary to law and public interest, and should be prompt, courteous and adequate service to our people. We will not make substantial gains if we are faint hearted and timid, if we set up good plans and modest targets, great progress is accomplished first in the mind, in great aims that challenge our capabilities and stimulate our collective adrenalin together our town RTR and its people feel extreme pride and fulfillment in achieving its vision and aspirations in all aspects of growth and development.
