Gov. Joet Garcia reiterated the commitment of the Provincial Government of Bataan to help the municipalities and lone city in the province in the implementation of their respective programs and projects to alleviate the living condition of all Bataenos during the opening day of Bisita Bayan kada Buwan program in Pilar last Monday.
Mayor Charlie Pizarro warmly welcomed the team from provincial government led by the Governor and Vice Gov. Cris Garcia who joined in their flag-raising ceremony. The contingent from the provincial government included board members and department heads. Joining Pizarro in welcoming the quests were Vice Mayor Ces Garcia and municipal councilors.
A highlight of the Bisita Bayan in Pilar was the “Kwentuhan Tayo with Mayor Charlie Pizarro”, an online program hosted by the governor. The governor and mayor talked about the programs and projects that will benefit Pilar residents. Ten live audience won gift packs or Galing Bataan products, and five lucky winners each get P1,000 worth of gift certificate.
The Sangguniang Panlalawigan presided by Vice Gov. Garcia held its regular session in Pilar on Monday with Sangguniang Bayan as audience. Another anticipated event is the Hataw Takbo Bataan-Pilar Leg slated on October 28 at 4am. The run has three caregories: 3 Kilometers, 5 Kilometers, and 10 Kilometers. Top finishers will get medals. Gov. Garcia started this year the Bisita Bayan bringing government services closer to the people at the grassroots level in the entire province. Bisita Bayan is patterned to the multi-awarded and LGU best practice, the Barangay Week program which the governor introduced in Balanga City when he was mayor.
