BALANGA CITY, Bataan – The Provincial Government of Bataan led by Governor Abet Garcia formally received the 2018 Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) award during a ceremony held yesterday, November 7, at the Tent City of Manila Hotel.
Among the awardees are the City of Balanga, Municipalities of Bagac, Hermosa, Morong, Orani, Pilar, and Samal. Also present were Provincial Administrator Ludivina Banzon, officials of DILG-Bataan and local chief executives of the above-mentioned municipalities.
Bataan 2nd District Representative Jose Enrique Garcia, one of the keynote speakers of the said ceremony (the other being Sen. Sonny Angara), said that they are currently deliberating at the Lower House a bill that will give additional monetary reward to the LGUs who will be receiving the SGLG award.
Based on the information provided by Ms. Ludivina Banzon, there are 7 components that the awardees passed to get the award, namely: Financial Administration, Disaster Preparedness, Social Protection, Peace & Order, Business-friendliness & Competitiveness, Environmental Management, and Tourism, Culture, & Arts.
Ms. Banzon added that Bataan is still the ‘Best’ in Region 3 in terms of highest percentage based on the number of municipalities awarded. She also added that Bataan is a consistent recipient of the SGLG (formerly Seal of Good Housekeeping) award since 2011. Lastly, she said that the PGB is committed to do its best to get not just the SGLG awards, but other awards that will show to all how progressive a province Bataan is.
The Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG), is a program of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), in response to the clamor of the people for integrity and performance in public service, hence challenging local governments to continue good governance practices while providing better public services.
Thus, the Seal of Good Local Governance symbolizes integrity and good performance of local governments. It is a continuing challenge for provincial, city, and municipal governments to do better today and in the years to come.
