Everyday since July 1st, 2010, the official day when City Mayor Manuel “Chiquiting” Sagarbarria started his battlecry of “politics of industry and opportunity”, the City Hall has been swamped with guests.
For 17 days now, Mayor Chiquiting’s office has been flooded with guests and visitors from various sectors of society, mostly from government offices and department heads. Paying courtesy calls to the new Mayor has been the order of the day.
Renewing acquaintances, getting-to-know-you-better on temperaments and personalities, and of course, serious discussions on projects and programs of their respective government offices in the City of Dumaguete.
It has been the concern of the Mayor that the “fastest and most efficient delivery of services” to the constituents of this City be given top priority.
A mini gym for barangays Tinago and Motong is now in place, and soon will be open for use by the barangays.
Strategies in curbing criminalities of any sort, attributed to the proliferation of illegal drugs and abuse has been set forth.
One such strategy is the strengthening of the City Anti-Drug Abuse Council, down to every Barangay CADAC.
Clearing out the City of any form of crimes gives way to peace and order, and would entice investors both local and foreign to come to Dumaguete to do business, and provide employment and better opportunities to Dumagueteños.
Moulders of our youth, the four universities and eight schools and colleges (of course, including the secondary and elementary institutions n almost all barangays in our City) have been very instrumental in preparing our young people for a better life ahead.
The paradigms of “getting rid off mediocrity”, and “striving to accelerate towards excellence” are now gaining momentum, also among the schools and their mentors. Graduates from various fields of specialization can be globally-competitive.
These are just but a few things that we can be proud of here in Dumaguete City. The City government led by Mayor Sagarbarria, along with the various sectors in the community will provide the opportunities; it will be the people’s share to be industrious as well.
