THE newly-elected local government of Mambulao, CamNorte, has launched a face-to-face dialogue program called “Kapihan sa Baranggay”.
Debuting on July 19 at Baranggay Osmena, the initiative aims to deal with community issues head-on by having a face-to-face dialogue with the members of the community.
Re-elected mayor Ricarte Padilla said the scheme would be a regular LGU activity to get first-hand knowledge on how the baranggay people feel about the municipal government and to find out their concerns.
The first dialogue was attended by the eight newly-elected members of the Sangguniang Bayan.
The local people fielded questions that concerned livelihood, peace and order, health and sanitation, education and access to the Office of the Mayor, among others.
The program hopes to cover the 27 baranggays during the first six months of the new local government’s term.
