Less executive assistants means more savings – Joe
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)
