House Deputy Speaker for Mindanao Representative Beng Climaco-Salazar is gearing up for a series of consultations and meetings with newly-elected barangay officials after their assumption to office on November 30.
The consultation-meeting is in parallel with the District I congresswoman’s thrust on participatory governance where consultation is very important.
Since she assumed office as representative of the first district of the city in 2007, Cong. Climaco has made it a point to consult with the officials from the 37 barangays in the west coast to ensure that all programs and projects being implemented in the different areas are with the consent of the people.
Cong. Climaco said she is optimistic that the new barangay officials will help her make the barangays more involved in relevant undertakings in the days and months to come.
The new set of barangay officials, who were elected into office last October 25, will officially assume their posts noontime of November 30.
In her first term, the lady solon met with the District I barangay officials on different forum—sometimes as one group and there were times visiting the officials in their individual barangays just to seek their opinions or comments on projects she intended to implement.
“Through dedication and participatory governance, District I has grown from the baby that I was a mere 3 years ago to make its baby steps with services that are relevant to the needs of its members”,thus emphasized Cong. Beng Climaco, as she reported to the people the gains she acquired during the over first 2 years of her term, last January.
As of last January, Cong. C.limaco’s accomplishments accounted to a total of P766.795 million worth of projects from 2007-2009 that include various projects intended to help ameliorate the condition of the residents of the 37 barangays under her district.
Significant to mention in the projects impelemented are the distribution of the 37 L-300 vans to all the District I barangays, the P691.63 worth of infrastructure projects, P11.8 million for health care, P4.2 million worth of scholarships offered, P1.4 million for social welfare services and 54 bills authored and co-authored at the House of Congress.
“All these we do in the service of our people. In the desire to perform and deliver the passion to ensure that every Zamboangueno in District I feels the relevance of this government is what drives me”, the lady solon said in her message during the maiden session of the City Council last January.
