Sanggunian Bayan (SB)

Message of Vice Mayor

Fellow Abuyognons:

It is your call upon me to assume one of the highest offices in the Sangguniang Bayan with your gift. I humbly and gratefully accept the trust. My sole determination and aspiration is to be of service to you.

I feel overwhelmed by the distinction that has come to me. You conferred upon me an honor that has a special value at this period of our history; and that I gratefully bow to your will.

The office of the Municipal Vice-Mayor is the highest within the bounds of the legislative department but it can be the humblest also, if we regard it – as we must in the light of the democratic principle that “sovereignty resides in the people and all government authority emanates from them”. This simply means that all of us in the public office are but servants of the people. Accordingly, I pledge to abide by this principle.

This is my third term as Vice-Mayor of this municipality. As I see it, your mandate in the past was not a license for the selfish enjoyment of power. On the contrary, it was an endorsement of the guiding principle, at times forgotten that the general welfare is the only justification for the exercise of governments power and authority. So, for the third time you have catapulted me to power.

My fellow ABUYOGNONS… I feel upon my shoulders the full weight of the enormous responsibility that you have placed upon me. But with faith health sustained by GOD, under whose protection we have placed our destiny, and strengthened by an abiding faith in his goodness; with your unfailing support and assistance… I hope to discharge my mission successfully.

I need you, our public functionaries and all other concerned stakeholders – the faithful servants of the people, tall, strong men and pure self-sacrificing women who will safeguard the public interest like vestal fire.

UNITED AND FREE, WE WILL SHAPE A FUTURE WORTHY OF OUR NOBLE HERITAGE… IF WE BUT ACT; ACT TOGETHER, ACT WITH COURAGE AND ACT UNSELFISHLY IN A SPIRIT OF PATRIOTIC DEDICATION……
