Less ex­ec­u­tive as­sis­tants means more sav­ings – Joe

Panay News - - FRONT PAGE - By Glenda Solo­gas­toa

ILOILO CITY - For­mer mayor Jed Pa­trick Ma­bilog had 15 ex­ec­u­tive as­sis­tants.

His suc­ces­sor jose Espinosa III is not keen on reap­point­ing some of them.

With a lesser num­ber of ex­ec­u­tive as­sis­tants, the city gov­er­ment could save a lot of money, Espinosa ex­plained.

"Sav­ings is a mat­ter nga ki­nanglan man na­ton. In gov­er­nance, ang im­por­tant is to see to it nga ang money of gov­ern­ment is spent wisely" he stressed.

The month­lyn salaries of Ma­bilog's ex­ec­u­tive as­sis­tants ranged from P15,000 to P52,000.

But while Espinosa wanted to have a leaner co­terie of ad­vis­ers, he said he would be creat­ing po­si­tions in fields where he would need peo­ple with ex­per­tise.

He ap­pointed two more ex­ec­u­tive as­sis­tants re­cently - Chris Mon­tero (for in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy) and Antonio Rosado (for fi­nan­cial and fis­cal con­trol)
