Sun Star Bacolod - - Front Page -

“I WISH that all the ma­jor projects we have, par­tic­u­larly the pri­or­ity projects that were funded by the De­vel­op­ment Bank of the Philip­pines (DBP) loan can all be im­ple­mented at the soon­est pos­si­ble time.”

This is the wish of Ba­colod City Mayor Eve­lio Leonar­dia, who’s cel­e­brat­ing his birth­day to­day.

Leonar­dia said yes­ter­day that he will cel­e­brate his birth­day with his fam­ily and friends.

“There will be no big cel­e­bra­tion be­cause like as we did in the pre­vi­ous years that when we have our inaugural that is at the same time my birth­day

cel­e­bra­tion. We did that in 2010, 2013, and 2016 so it’s two-in-one,” he said.

The mayor along with the newly elected of­fi­cials of Ba­colod held its starstud­ded inaugural cer­e­mony at the Ba­colod Gov­ern­ment Cen­ter on July 1.

The ac­tiv­ity was at­tended by three of the high­est-rank­ing Se­nate of­fi­cials, two ambassador­s, a US em­bassy of­fi­cial, and the rich­est con­gress­man in the last Congress.

Leonar­dia said it’s his wish that all the pri­or­ity projects such as the Masskara Coli­seum, de­vel­op­ment of Pro­greso Vil­lage Re­lo­ca­tion Site, Ba­colod City Col­lege De­vel­op­ment and Fa­cil­i­ties, and the con­struc­tion of roads and bridges can all be im­ple­mented at the soon­est pos­si­ble time.

These projects will be funded by the P1.7-bil­lion load from the DBP.

Singer-song­writer ad busi­ness­man Jose Mari Chan, an adopted son of Ba­colod City, also urged the Ba­colod­nons to pray for the good health of the mayor so that he will be able to de­liver what he promised for the peo­ple of Ba­colod.

“That’s my wish, con­tin­ued good health for our mayor,” he said./map
