PAGADIAN CITY, July 4(PIA) — After six years of being out of the political limelight, the newly-installed mayor of Pagadian City promised to pursue his flagship programs for the poor.
In the recent turn over and acceptance ceremony at the city hall grounds, Mayor Samuel S. Co announced that after his political party won the 2019 midterm elections by a landslide victory, he vowed to fulfill his promises he made to the people during the campaign period.
Co said his administration will focus on the following priorities: infrastructure projects, medical care for the poor, improved peace and order, development of tourism, and reducing poverty.
Co said in one or two months- time, he will prioritize the operation of Danlugan Hospital and conversion of the 3rd and 4rth floor of City Commercial Center as temporary tertiary hospital for the poor people to access mainstream health care services.
The good mayor said he wants that no one will be denied care because of inability to pay.
He also said that he will equip the Pagadian City Police force with vehicles and communication equipment saying that these are the key factors in making the city peaceful and orderly.
He also said that he will stop the illegal operation of unregistered tricycles particularly the Bajaj (locally known as “Bao-Bao”) that continue to infuriate the tricycle operators and drivers who religiously pay for franchise and mayor’s permit.
“Starting next month there will be no more illegal tricycle (Bao-Bao) that will operate in the city,” Co urged.
Co said that in pursuing the social and infrastructure programs of his administration, Pagadian will become the fastest growing city of Mindanao.
