VG Lagman leads Barangay Enhancement Seminar in Rapu-Rapu
Vice Governor Edcel Grex Lagman said that he is grateful to have spent a day in Albay’s Solamente Island, Municipality of Rapu-Rapu.
Lagman said that the Office of the Vice-Governor (OVG) conducted a Barangay Enhancement Seminar (BES) for the punong barangays and three (3) kagawads of the committees on health; education and appropriations, respectively, of the 34 barangays in Rapu-Rapu.
“This BES seeks to improve the legislative performance of the 34 barangay councils,” he explained.
The speakers for the event were 2D BM Atty. Melissa Arias Abadeza and Atty. Jay Emmanuel Aguilar Hayagan.
“The former’s my colleague in the Sangguniang Panlalawigan ng Albay (SPA) who competently lectured on the Katarungang Pambarangay Law and the latter’s a lawyer who is a proud Rapu Rapueño who lectured on Administrative Law,” said Lagman.
“I was also happy to have on board another SPA colleague in the person of BM Neil Luna Montallana of Albay’s second district. He started his career in public service as a barangay captain in Daraga and gave a talk that inspired the punong barangays in the audience,” he added.
Lagman also thanked Mayor Boy A. Galicia, who was represented by MDRRMO head and former 3-term councilor of Rapu Rapu Wilson Araojo Guianan as well as ABC President Tom Eivandick Galicia.
“Thanks as well for the face shields and face masks donated by the PGA through Gov. Al Francis C. Bichara and PSWDO head madi Dr. Eva Grageda! The same were received by Mr. Guianan on behalf of Mayor Galicia.
God bless, Rapu Rapu,” he said.
