    Last week, Mayor Gila also earned the praise of Interior and Local Government Director Florida Dijan and other officials of various national government agencies for successfully launching Brgy. Pag-asa, as the showcase area in Central Luzon in what she called “Synchronized 1stsemester Barangay Assembly Day.”

   During the occasion, Punong Barangay Basilio Layug delivered his State of the Barangay Address wherein he highlighted his administration’s accomplishments last year as well as upcoming activities, of course due to the support of the lady mayor.

   In a message, Dijan stressed the importance of municipal leadership in partnership with the barangay government and its residents for the betterment of the community, saying  “nothing is impossible if we work together,”

   For her part, Mayor Garcia vowed to provide the necessary assistance to address the gaps in implementing the proposed projects and activities of the barangay.

   Moreover, Governor Albert Raymond Garcia informed the community of the ongoing initiatives of the provincial government such as  increasing employment opportunities by being an investment hub through the Freeport Area of Bataan; ongoing construction of flood control projects in the municipalities of Dinalupihan and Hermosa in Bataan and Lubao in Pampanga; and repair and full operationalization of the power generating plants in Bataan.

   The conduct of barangay assemblies in all barangays across the archipelago every last Saturday of March and second Sunday of October is pursuant to Proclamation No.260 of President Benigno Aquino III.

   “It seeks to institutionalize the tenets of transparency, responsiveness, accountability and participation at the barangay level, and to afford the officials the opportunity to meet with their constituents to reaffirm their commitment to realize their plans and programs for the community,” Dijan explained.

   Aside from this, Mayor Garcia’s town was also the first to have the minorities represented in the Municipal Council after four  Aetas were appointed to represent their communities in the council.
