Striv­ing for ex­cel­lence

Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORIES! -

BARANGAY DAPDAP, which in­cludes the densely-pop­u­lated Madap­dap Re­set­tle­ment in Mabalacat City and headed by its hard­work­ing and re­source­ful barangay chair­man Javier P. Taruc, has been awarded a Cer­tifi­cate of Recog­ni­tion on march 25, 2019 by Mayor Crisos­tomo C.

Garbo ‘for be­ing the first LGU in Pam­panga to be is­sued by Tesda with a Cer­tifi­cate of TVET pro­gram reg­is­tra­tion and the first to pro­vide short­term train­ings to the un­der priv­i­leged res­i­dents of the com­mu­nity and the city.

Dapdap, which ranks high in the in­come-gen­er­a­tion totem pole of the city, next to Barangays Dau and Sa­pang Bi­abas, is con­tin­u­ously im­prov­ing in terms of eco­nomic growth. It is home to var­i­ous set­tlers com­ing from dif­fer­ent parts of Pam­panga who we up­rooted by the erup­tions of Mt. Pi­natubo in 1991. It hosts peo­ple of var­i­ous cul­ture, di­alects and ori­en­ta­tion which makes it an ex­cit­ing place to live in.

There are sev­eral big com­mer­cial es­tab­lish­ments in the area and many small to medium en­ter­prises. It also hosts some gov­ern­ment agen­cies and health and ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions such as the Mabalacat City Col­legeDap­dap Branch.

Mr. Rosan S. Paquia, ESQ, the City Ad­min­is­tra­tor of Mabalacat City and con­cur­rent CPDC head re­acted sharply to my col­umn en­ti­tled Dis­re­spect­ing the SP. He said the ex­ec­u­tive de­part­ment fully re­spects the SP and its of­fi­cers as a mat­ter of ba­sic de­part­men­tal cour­tesy.

In the said col­umn, I was re­fer­ring to pri­vate per­sons who were in­vited by the com­mit­tee chair­man to at­tend hear­ings on mat­ters of pub­lic in­ter­ests but chose to ig­nore the in­vi­ta­tion, some­times re­peat­edly with­out ex­tend­ing ex­cuse or apol­ogy or plain ex­pla­na­tion for their ab­sence.

An­ge­les City Coun­cilor AL­FIE BONI­FA­CIO is a very busy man what with sev­eral med­i­cal mis­sions he has to ac­com­plish not only in his city but also in Baguio, dif­fer­ent parts of Pam­panga and even as far as Ca­marines Norte.

Coun­cilor Boni­fa­cio per­forms ex­tra ser­vice to peo­ple need­ing den­tures and ex­trac­tion pro bono and to those en­dorsed to him by the Pinedas, long known for their char­ity work.

He is worth re­elect­ing by An­ge­les City vot­ers due to his gen­uine and ex­ten­sive pub­lic ser­vice.
