ORANI, Bataan – “Ang resulta ay mahalaga kung ito ay nabibilang,” Mayor Bondjong Pascual stated, as he started his State of the Municipality Address (SOMA) last Friday, August 4, 2017, at the Orani Multi-Purpose Gym.
“Kaya ang sukatan ay klarong ebidensya na kung saan ang pagpapagod ng ating pamahalaan kung may numero, at ang numero ay magbibigay patotoo na nagbibigay pagbabago sa buhay ng isang tao,” he added as he continued to disclose important points in his report.
Included in his SOMA were reports on the current status about the town’s education system, per capita income, competitiveness index, economic enterprises, security and public safety, and ecotourism. Not only that, but also the status of the programs like “Smoke-free Orani”, ordinance on solid waste management, desilting of rivers, responsible pet ownership, and organized transport system were also reported. “Walang magbabago kung walang babaguhin” Mayor Bondjong said, giving way for him to state the changes that have happened during his political year.
That day was a special day for him, for not only did he deliver his SOMA, not only did he grace the launching of 3 important events in his town, but he also celebrated his 50th birthday that same day – making him extra thankful to God, and everyone around him that helped him reach that age with a lot of things to be proud of.
From the staffers of 1Bataan, we wish you all the best, Mayor Bondjong!
