Lacson pledges
critical collaboration

Principled partnership, critical collaboration and unity in plurality.

This will be the continued guideposts of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Negros Occidental in the next three years, Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson stressed yesterday during the SP inaugural session.

Lacson assured Gov. Alfredo Marañon that the SP, under his leadership, will continue to support any and all the initiatives for further development and improved delivery of basic services to Negrosanons.

Fulfilling their promises to the people of Negros Occidental, Lacson asked members of the SP to cooperate and set aside personal and party interests, and work together for the sustainable development of the province.

“But since we go by the rule of law and legal processes in the discharge of functions,” Lacson said some government initiatives may take time implementing. “It is a necessary part of our faithfully discharging our obligations to examine every proposed piece of legislation submitted and to ask the necessary questions, always keeping the interest of the common good in mind”, he also said.

He said the Negros First Development Agenda will be best achieved through principled partnership and critical collaboration.

“I urge everyone to join me in this convergence to pursue honest and transparent public service with utmost integrity and professionalism,” Lacson added.

He also thanked former Board Members Rolando Ponsica, Miller Serondo, Johnna Ko, Jose Benito Alonso, Renato Gustilo, Raul Rivera and Mark Cui for their support, in making the provincial board a “dynamic body of our local government”.*GPB
