ALAMINOS, Laguna -– Alaminos town officials and town hall employees here were surprised during Monday’s flag-raising ceremony on Mayor Loreto M. Masa’s message bereft of his customary presentation of the town’s plans and programs.
This time around, Masa requested the town’s street cleaners and sweepers to take center stage as the local chief executive praised them for the upkeep and cleanliness of the town’s environs especially the public market.
Masa congratulated the Poblacion street sweepers, led by Angelito Musca, and the public market cleaners, led by Morris Albert S. Matibag, for “their job well done”.
The mayor made the recognition to the town’s utility workers and sanitation service providers after his office was swamped with “thank you Mayor” messages from Alaminos constituents and netizens.
The messages praised the town mayor for the clean streets, orderly and neat public market and the discipline enforced especially to street hawkers and side-walk vendors who used to clog pedestrian easements in the commercial district.
Masa underscored that even those performing lowly work and menial jobs are vital and should be honored for their role and contribution in complementing to the town’s total public service package for constituents, particularly on cleanliness and sanitation.
He said the cleaners’ dedicated service on the maintenance and upkeep of the town results in a healthy environment that leaves a lasting impression not only among constituents but also visitors and tourists alike.
The Alaminos town mayor also welcomed retired UPLB student affairs official Aida D. Domondon as the new head of the town’s Office of Senior Citizens’ Affairs (OSCA) during the ceremony.
Municipal Social Welfare and Development Officer Marissa M. Aguilar introduced Domondon, who has been actively involved in the Federation of Senior Citizens Association of Alaminos. PNA/northboundasia.com
