During the first flag-raising ceremony held at the Bunker today, July 4, under his term as the province’s local chief executive, Governor Joet Garcia underscored his goal of bringing the services of the Provincial Government of Bataan closer to each municipality.
“Ang akin pong naiisip, Bisita Bayan Kada Buwan kasi labing dalawa ang ating bayan, labing dalawa din ang buwan sa isang taon, so pwede tayong mag allocate ng isang buwan kung saan ang iba’t ibang serbisyo ng ating lalawigan ay maibababa natin sa bayan na ‘yon sa loob ng isang buwan,” Gov. Joet said.
Aside from responding to the needs of the people, this plan is intended to identify and analyze the different needs in each municipality from health, social services, livelihood opportunities, and the like.
Continuously being vocal about aligning families to the vision of the province through parenting programs, he also stressed his idea of creating a system that would determine if the personal goals of the employees of the provincial government for their families are reached just like how the Performance Governance System (PGS) measures the targets of each individual in the province’s vision.
“Maganda, mai-apply po natin ang systema ng PGS sa ating mga sarili at sa buo po nating mga pamilya. Kasi, nakikita po natin, kung naaabot man ng probinsya ang kanyang vision o yung goal para sa ating mga kababayan, pero hindi naman naaabot ng ating mga empleyado ang kanilang pangarap para sa kanilang pamilya, hindi rin po magiging maayos yung ating kalagayan at ang kalagayan ng bawat isang empleyado,” he highlighted.
Gov. Joet also asked the Provincial Health Office for the continuous delivery of basic services they offer prior to the pandemic which will intensify government efforts for health along with the implementation of Universal Health Care Law.
During his term as a Congressman of the Second Congressional District, Gov. Joet has spearheaded programs for healthy lifestyle like Tobacco-free Generation Movement and Kabataan at Kalusugan para sa Kinabukasan (KKK).
