Imee Marcos named among PHL’s outstanding governors anew

LAOAG CITY —- Known as the architect of Ilocos Norte’s rapid transformation for the past six years, an independent award-giving body is set to honor Governor Imee Marcos as one of the country’s top outstanding governors on March 30.

Superbrands Marketing Inc. (SMI) is engaged in consumer and service products, including assessment of delivery of quality governance throughout the country.

Recipients of the Outstanding Governorship Award are governors who demonstrate collective success and remarkable achievements as public servants.

This marks Gov. Imee’s second citation as an Outstanding Governor, having been bestowed the same award on October 28, 2015, for “ensuring the rapid and inclusive development of the province” through the provincial vision, “Pasingkedan ti Kinatan-ok ni Ilocano!” (Together, we can make Ilocos Norte great again!)

In addition to excellence in leadership, service delivery, and programs for inclusive growth, Gov. Imee also upholds the Ilocano culture of “timpuyog”, which she defines as “the endless network of communities making up the province━Ilocanos everywhere throughout the country and the world, ready to help and build together.”

Also recognized from the province are Vice Governor Eugenio Angelo M. Barba, Laoag City Vice Mayor Michael V. Fariñas and Bacarra Vice Mayor Jonathan Blas P. Ramit, who will each receive the Outstanding Local Legislator Award on the same day. PNA/
