TAGUM City Councilor De Carlo "Oyo" L. Uy was awarded regional winner and one of the finalists in the prestigious search for The Outstanding Councilors of the Philippines (TOCP) 2012 by the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Philippines, the Philippine Councilors League (PCL) and the Office of Sen. Edgardo J. Angara.
The regional awarding ceremonies happened on March 7, the Mall of Asia Convention Center during the Philippine Councilors League convention. Present to receive the award in behalf of Uy was PCL national chair and fellow city councilor Atty. Alan D. Zulueta.
The young legislator championed for his outstanding leadership, legislative excellence and exceptional contribution to the cause of his constituents, the community and the nation.
He was cited for "serving as an exemplar of good governance, devotion to sworn duty and as a shining example of true public service."
The selection process has always been the most crucial stage of the search because of the equally outstanding members of the Board of Judges who guarantee the integrity of the process.
Through the years, the TOCP has established itself as the Philippines' foremost award giving body for municipal and city legislators who excel in their chosen vocation and whose selfless efforts have given notable contributions to their respective constituencies, to the community and to the country in general.
The award is also one of the flagship projects of JCI Philippines along with The Outstanding Young Men (Toym) Award and The Outstanding Policemen of the Philippines (Topp) Award which are institutions over the years and known for its reputation of being selective in granting awards.
