THIS city has bagged another accomplishment by winning the regional Gawad Pamana ng Lahi award conferred by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

The award is given to outstanding local government units that have excelled in various performance indicators based on the Local Governance Performance Management System (LGPMS), including the Seal of Good Housekeeping, awards received, and innovative programs and projects.

Iloilo City bested the cities of San Carlos, which placed second, and Bacolod in third place.

It automatically qualifies for the Gawad National Award next year.

“This shows we are very good in managing our city, proving our strength in governance and administration,” Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog said.

The city will receive P150,000 with either trophy or plaque in the awarding ceremony to be held Oct. 11 in Metro Manila, according to Atty. Ferdinand Panes, DILG Iloilo City director.

He said the city scored high in the LGPMS that covers administrative, social, economic and environmental governance during the validation conducted by a regional team of evaluators on Sept. 23.

It also helped that the city is a recipient of the DILG’s Seal of Good Housekeeping, presented many innovations and programs, and has received both national and international awards, Panes added.

Other Gawad winners are Negros Occidental for the provincial category, followed by Aklan and Capiz.

New Lucena, Iloilo was declared winner for the municipal category, with Anilao, Iloilo in second place, and Pan-ay , Capiz in third place. (Lucy Montealto-Sinay)

NO POLITICIAN will ever miss the opportunity for photo ops especially if the snap will go into print, front page at that. So when the picture of the politicians who went to Macau for what is billed a “weekend of bonding” hit the front page, I immediately went through the line-up. But what struck me was not who were there but who were not.   Read more...
