DAVAO DEL NORTE Opinion: The good governance team



I am really not a political figure but entirely my professional career is to provide services to the Needy, Less Fortunate, and Marginalized Community; to the Local Government Structure for it to have a system of Quality Delivery of Services; to Uphold Good Governance to be more effective in our public intention.

All of this is an Aspiration where I have seen its reflections in the DAYADAY-CAMELLO Administration.

One of the most intriguing figures of their good governance is they were focused on delivering quality services to the very least fortunate household in Asuncion.

The Pabahay sa Lumad located at Barangay Camansa, Asuncion where the Asuncion Government was able to convince the National Housing Authority to provide a P200 million budget for the 100 houses intended for the victims of Typhoon Pablo.

It was already turned over to the IPs/ICCs of Barangay Camansa and beneficiaries already residing in the Pabahay Sites.Politically, this intention established the structures of the Pabahay sa Lumad at Camansa is not favorable to the DAYADAY-CAMELLO Administration as their tandem from previous two elections their tandem losses heavily in this barangay.

May be an image of 2 people

Even the non-supported political views ofextended by the barangay captain, still, what reigns in their heart and the purity of their intention is to help in the spirit of good governance, is to seek and find the most marginalized community to be provided a better shelter for their families underlying any political consequences.

This is a clear manifestation that the DAYADAY-CAMELLO Administration is on the right track in serving the people of Asuncion. I am not a resident of Asuncion, but I rendered services to the place where I withness and believed that there is so much service to be done as more needy households expect government assistance especially in their needs of a better shelter.MY SUPPORT TO THE DAYADAY-CAMELLO ADMINISTRATION IS MY SUPPORT TO THE CAUSE OF GOOD GOVERNANCE

Sara to gov’t workers: Adopt ‘Davao Brand’ in serving public

sara duterte arena

Mayor Sara Z. Duterte encouraged fellow public servants to practice the “Davao brand” of public service.

“Our Davao brand of service should be the kind that we want to be served if we are part of the general public. Our brand of service should be friendly and accommodating, responsive, proactive, and fast and efficient,” Mayor Sara told the members of the Association of Regional Executives of National Agencies of Region 11 (ARENA-11) on Monday.

Mayor Sara was the guest speaker during the organization’s flag-raising ceremony.

Duterte said that to better serve the public, government agencies should adopt thorough planning, use relevant data, and observe “standards of excellence.”

“We must veer away from phrases like “depende sa unsa man gusto ni Mayor” (it depends on what Mayor wants) or “puwede ra na basta musugot si Mayor” (it is okay as long as the Mayor permits). We are bound by the laws of our land and we should conscientiously plan how to execute the mandate of our offices and take advantage of systems and technology to do so,” she said.

Sara also encouraged government agencies to strengthen cooperation and ensure that the collective aspirations of the Davao Region are achieved.

“Nothing is insurmountable when we are working together with one common goal — driven by common energy, commitment, and dedication for public service,” Duterte said.

She also lauded the “tireless, committed, and dedicated men and women” of ARENA-11 for their contribution to the growth of the region and of this city.

“I humbly encourage all of you not to stay in the comfort of your air-conditioned offices, and instead, we must set forth and find those who urgently need our help,” the mayor said.

Duterte added: “I believe that our gathering today in a ceremony for the symbol of our country is a perfect way to start the year and perfect time for us to look back at the best practices that we put in place, implemented, and shared with each other to accomplish our plans — with renewed optimism that we will be able to sharpen these best practices, even more, to accomplish greater things for the people of Region 11”. (PNA)
