“We also focus on the barangay level so that we can uplift the awareness of all the Bulakenyos regarding the legal matters which will protect them from getting abused thus, get the justice they deserve. Also, we make sure that our commitment to protect our environment engages all our sectors especially the makers and implementers of the law,” added Gov. Alvarado.
