Mayor EdSa Named As Most Outstanding Mayor Of PHL [ Thursday, 26th of March 2015 | 2 years ago ]
The mayor personally received this recognition from the SMI officials headed by President Harry Tambuatco and Chairman Karl Maclean at Makati Sports Club last March 25.
The MOMA (Most Outstanding Mayor Award) promotes the works of the mayors for their singular or collective efforts toward nation building. SMI deemed that Mayor EdSa’s programs on social services, projects on climate change, biodiversity education, housing, peace & order, health, infrastructure, income and livelihood are worthy of the title “outstanding”.
“This award is not because of just one man, this is the result of collaborative efforts in our local government” said the mayor noting that “awards, for me, are gauges to measure how the government serves the people.”
The mayor, during his first term, created a 12-point agenda that now serves as the LGU’s springboard to the promotion of inclusive growth among Fernandinos. These sustainable development programs address the birth-to-retirement needs of the citizenry, “making the City of San Fernando, Pampanga, a livable home for everyone.”
With his stewardship, the LGU bagged its fourth most business friendly city title and was able to collect 1 billion pesos revenue without increasing taxes.
“Our battle cry Fernandino First is call for excellence. It is ever present that, when responded to, will turn the ordinary into the extraordinary, and will make possible our vision of inclusive growth for all” he furthered.
Along with Mayor Santiago in the MOMA rosters are another two mayors in Pampanga, Edgardo Pamintuan of Angeles City and Emmanuel Alejandrino of Arayat. Other awardees are Joseph Estrada of Manila, Herbert Bautista of Quezon City, Esterlina Aguinaldo of Praxedes, Cagayan Valley, Celso Dator of Lucban, Quezon, Bernard Dy of Cauayan, Isabela, Faustino Dy III of San Manuel Isabela, Napoleon Edquid of Candelaria, Zambales, Gerald Galvez, Sophia Palacio of Calatagan Batangas, Shierre Palicpic of Pagbilao, Quezon, Reynaldo Parojinog of Ozamis, Misamis Occidental, Meyanardo Sabili of Lipa, Batangas, and Ferdinand Sales of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte.
