CITY OF MALOLOS- Bulacan public officials will gather on February 2 as Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado leads series of activities anchored on good governance to be held at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium in this city.

Alvarado said that they invited credible and experienced personalities who can tackle topics regarding the proper behavior and ethics of government officials, thus encourage public officials to be united in pursuing a common goal of serving the public effectively.

Among them are Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Sec. Jesse Robredo who will talk about the “Seal of Good Governance and Seal of Good Housekeeping,” Rev. Fr. Melo Diola to discuss about “Good Governance and Ethics in Politics” and Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Sec. Ramon Paje with the topic about “Good Governance on Environment.”

“Tunay na mahalaga ang bayanihan at sama-samang pagkilos upang makamit ang isang adhikain. At kaugnay ng hangarin na patuloy pang maitaguyod at mai-angat ang karangalan ng Bulacan at ang kapakanan ng mga mamamayan nito, sadyang mahalaga ang pagkakabuklod sa pananaw ng mga namamahala rito,” said Alvarado.

Also, Bantay Kalinisan ng Bulacan will confer the cleanest town or city on the same day. Among the competing 21 towns and three cities, Calumpit, Pulilan, Bustos, Guiguinto, Plaridel, San Rafael, Doña Remedios Trinidad, Norzagaray, City of San Jose Del Monte, and Sta. Maria made it to the finals.

Provincial Administrator Jim Valerio, chairman of the Bantay Kalinisan Task Force, said that as part of the realization of the 7-Point Agenda of Gov. Alvarado, this program aims to put teeth on the Republic Act 9003 or "Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000” and encourage the collective effort of local government units in keeping the cleanliness and beauty of the province.

“Ang pagsusuri ay nakatuon sa mga programa o inisyatibo ng mga lokal na pamahalaan ukol sa pangangalaga ng kapaligiran sa kanilang nasasakupang bayan at kung gaano kalawak ang partisipasyon at pakikipagtulungan ng komunidad at ng iba pang mga organisasyon sa pagpapatupad nito,” explained Valerio.

The grand winner of the Bantay Kalinisan ng Bulacan will receive a cash prize worth of P100, 000 and a P1M aid for infrastructure projects. The 2nd runner up will receive P 50,000 and P500, 000 aid for infrastructure projects while the 3rd runner up will receive P30, 000 and P200, 000 financial aids.

Meanwhile, the 3rd and 4th quarter winners from each district will receive P30, 000 while the runners-up will get P20, 000.

Alvarado hopes that this activity will serve as an encouragement to the LGUs in Bulacan in giving the public good and effective public service.

“Kamakailan ay itinanghal ang ating lalawigan bilang isa sa mga Gawad Pamana ng Lahi awardees at recipient ng Seal of Good Housekeeping. Kung kaya sa pamamagitan ng gawaing ito ay inaasahan naming maibahagi ang karangalang ito sa iba pang lokal na pamahalaan upang mahimok rin sila na higit pang paunlarin ang serbisyong ipinagkakaloob sa ating mga kalalawigan,” added Alvarado.###
