GOVER­NOR elect Eu­ge­nio Jose Lac­son and Vice Gover­nor elect Jef­frey Fer­rer pledge for a har­mo­nious re­la­tion­ship be­tween the Ex­ec­u­tive and Leg­isla­tive Branch dur­ing the turnover of the Sang­gu­ni­ang Pan­lalaw­igan yes­ter­day June 26.

Lac­son said he had a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence as pre­sid­ing of­fi­cer of the SP for the last six years.

“It seems six years is only just yes­ter­day. But they say, the rest is his­tory and we can­not sum­mon it back. Let us ac­cept that we have to move for­ward and this is it,” he said.

He said that the SP have proven the ef­fec­tive­ness of their col­lab­o­ra­tion and part­ner­ship in mov­ing

the prov­ince for­ward.

“The SP be­came a tool not to ob­struct or stop de­vel­op­ment, but to bol­ster our claim for ma­tu­rity as a body that stands as part­ner in terms of ef­fec­tive leg­isla­tive agenda in sup­port of the ex­ec­u­tive plans and pro­grams. Our prin­ci­pled part­ner­ship re­flected our true sen­ti­ment that we can work de­spite our po­lit­i­cal be­liefs and po­lit­i­cal dif­fer­ences,” Lac­son fur­ther said.

For his part, Fer­rer said, “Your new Vice Gover­nor is now on board. Al­low me to take you all to our jour­ney in leg­isla­tive realm of pub­lic of­fice. I know that I have a big­ger shoes to fill in with leg­isla­tive im­prints left by our out­go­ing Vice Giver­nor Bong but I will make sure that I will also do my best to serve you with all of my heart.”

Fer­rer fur­ther as­sured that he will de­liver the kind of ser­vice that will dwell on the Peo­ple’s wel­fare and for the com­mon good.

“I hope that lo­cal laws that we will be craft­ing here will lead us to the at­tain­ment of good gov­er­nance. It is never easy but let us keep our fo­cus on it be­cause I am sure it will never go wrong,” Fer­rer also em­pha­sized.

Grad­u­at­ing board mem­bers like Sal­vador Es­calante, Pe­dro Zayco and He­len Zafra have also de­liv­ered their re­spec­tive mes­sages.

The last ses­sion was at­tended by both the out­go­ing and in­com­ing SP mem­bers./tde
