Palawan Gov. Alvarez named outstanding governor of the Philippines
Palawan Governor Jose Ch. Alvarez has bagged the Outstanding Governor of the Philippines award by the Association of Social Welfare and Development Officers of the Philippines Inc. (ALSWDOPI).
The awarding ceremony was held last April 25 at the Waterfront Hotel & Casinos, Cebu City.
It coincided with the annual gathering of social welfare and development officers in the country.
Provincial Social Welfare and Development Officer (PSWDO) Abigail D. Ablana said that it was the first time Gov. Alvarez received the award.
“It’s the very first time na maka-receive tayo ng award from the association, and natutuwa tayo kasi na- appreciate nila ang effort ng provincial government through our very dynamic and very supportive governor, Governor JCA para doon sa ating social protection programs sa Palawan,” said PSWDO Ablana.
Aside from Alvarez, the governors of Ilocos Norte, Bulacan and Laguna received the same award for their social service programs.
Samantala, masaya namang tinanggap ni PSWD Officer Ablana ang plake at sertipiko ng pagkilala bilang kinatawan ng gobernador kasama ang buong delegasyon ng Palawan.
Ablana received the certificate of recognition in behalf of Governor Alvarez.
“Natutuwa po kami kasi ito ay tagumpay rin nating lahat. We want to put Palawan in the map of the Philippines and we want them to realize na malaman nila na ang Palawan ay hindi lamang kilala bilang tourist destination kundi kilala rin bilang mapagmahal na probinsya para sa ating mga kababayan,” the PSWDO head said.
