PILAR, Bataan – The Municipal Government of Pilar, through its newly-elected Mayor Charlie F. Pizarro, Jr. will continue its relentless campaign against illegal drugs and no sacred cow is going to be allowed.
The announcement was made by Pizarro during the oath-taking ceremonies for the newly-elected officials of this town held at the Government Center on Friday. He said: “Ayokong may maririnig na barangay official na nakikiusap tungkol sa kaso ng illegal drugs.” (I don’t want to hear complaints from any barangay officials who would want to get a drug suspect off the hook.)
He urged the citizenry to cooperate with the local government in its various programs on environment, garbage disposal, and peace and order to continue with the progress of Pilar town.
Pizarro announced that his wife, outgoing mayor Alice D. Pizarro is going to head the provincial government’s tourism council, a fitting portfolio for her, being a graduate of tourism course.
For her part, Mrs. Pizarro said the incoming administration should continue the various developmental projects that she has started more particularly in the development of tourism-related endeavors and environmental care.
She also admonished Pilar residents to continue promoting the spirit of unity of which Pilar town had been known for. “Ipakita natin ang ating pagkakaisa. Kahit papaano nakilala ang ating bayan sa pagiging mabubuting mamamayan at nagkakaisa,” the former mayor pointed out.
