Nueva Vizcaya is Region 02’s Most Outstanding Anti-Red Tape Act implementer
The provincial government of Nueva Vizcaya was proclaimed by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) as Region 02’s most outstanding anti-red tape act (ARTA) implementor for 2016, provincial category.
During the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) awarding ceremonies held at the City of Ilagan Auditorium, Isabela province yesterday (November 8), no other than Governor Carlos M. Padilla, Provincial Administrator Maybelle Dumlao-Sevillena, ARTA Council Chairperson, received the plaque of recognition, together with some chiefs of office.
Other municipal and barangay units from Nueva Vizcaya also received most outstanding and outstanding awards which were also received by either the municipal mayors, barangay captains and officials or their representatives.
In his opening remarks, DILG Regional Director John M. Castaneda said the yearly search is a challenge to all the LGUs to perform outstandingly; “to transform leadership from a profession to a vocation because commitment and good heart are more important than knowledge and skills.”
He stated further: “Today, you reap the fruits of your hardwork…ang tunay na magaling ay hindi natitinag…”
Finally, he said that the word “team” stands as an acronym for “together, everyone achieves more.”
Having received for the provincial government another award for 2015 SGLG Post Compliance Passers, Governor Padilla said in his “sharing” speech that he was just representing former Governor Ruth Padilla in receiving the award as it was during her time that the compliance was undertaken.
He said he finds it his obligation to equal or surpass the accomplishment of his predecessor and it is not because of the awards to be received but “to serve our people and to fast track development and progress in our province.”
