Today, I had the privilege of delivering the State of the City Address during the 40th Regular Session of the 9th Sangguniang Panlungsod of Maasin City. It was a momentous occasion where I was able to share with the people of Maasin our city's progress, achievements, and plans for the future.
I emphasized the recovery programs we have implemented after the devastating impact of Typhoon Odette. We made sure that our recovery efforts were focused on providing immediate relief to those who were affected while also laying the groundwork for long-term rehabilitation and development.
I also shared with the audience the many accomplishments we achieved in 2022. We have made significant strides in improving our city's infrastructure, public facilities, and local economy. Our commitment to the 17 SDGs and the NACIONAL-ON-WHEELS program has enabled us to make positive changes in the lives of our citizens.
Moreover, I outlined our progressive plans for the years ahead, including initiatives that will further strengthen our economy, promote sustainable development, and enhance our citizens' access to quality education and healthcare.
With this, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to my family, CongW Luz Mercado, and Former DPWH Sec. Roger Mercado, to my wife Deejay my kids Nicole and Lucas, to the Provincial Government headed by Gov. Damian G. Mercado and Vice-Gov. Rosa Emilia G. Mercado, Vice Mayor Maloney L. Samaco, and all SP Members, City Administrator Atty. Romeo R. Geniston, and all department heads, to all the LGU-Maasin City employees, and the entire people of Maasin for their unwavering support and commitment. Together, we will continue to build a brighter future for our city, and I am honored to lead this great community forward.
Thank you, and may God bless us all.
