Saturday, June 30, 2012
MABALACAT -- Board Tarcicio Halili (1st district) hosted over the weekend a district-wide “People’s Day” at his Barangay Dau District Office here, dispensing financial and medical support to some 200 indigents who attended the event.
Halili said the event aims to address the needs of indigents who cannot visit his office at the Provincial Capitol in the City of San Fernando.
He said the event also provides an avenue for consultation with his constituents.
“Here, people can have a chance to air all their concerns for possible government action. We try our best to address them in our capacity,” Halili said.
He said indigents with health problems were either referred to government hospitals or for assistance by the office of Governor Lilia Pineda.
He disclosed on Friday that he would be back at the Provincial Board (PB) to continue his legislative work and services to his constituents.
Halili told his constituents that he would seek for a seat in the august body in 2016 as his term ends next year.
Among the many highlight legislations the lawmaker is now pushing include the condonation of fees for indigents who die in government hospitals, the creation of bicycle lanes along the stretch of MacArthur Highway, and the increased financial assistance for poor students wishing to get quality education.
Asked about his plans for 2013, Halili told Sun.Star Pampanga: “Well, I am still looking at possibilities and opportunities like serving the people of Mabalacat in the council or those in grassroots. My plans are wide open for 2013. In any case, hindi naman nagpapahinga ang pagseserbisyo at tuloy-tuloy lang iyan basta you are committed and dedicated.”
