ONE of the interventions of the Department of Labor and Employment Regional Office 3 is the implementation of the Tulong Pangkabuhayan para sa Disadvantaged or Displaced Workers. The Dole Pampanga Field Office, headed by Arlene Tolentino, in cooperation and coordination with the Office of 1st District Representative Roseller "Yeng" Guiao, initiated this program at Mabalacat City in a presentation last Monday, August 18, 2014 at Jade Hall, Lot only, Xevera.
Working boots, masks and tools were provided by Cong Yeng Guiao, to the prospective workers who would be paid P336.00 per day plus insurance.
Workers come from Barangays San Francisco, Mabiga, Sto. Rosario, Poblacion Camachiles, Sta. Maria, Tabun, Sapang Biabas, Sta. Ines, Lakandula, Mangalit Sapang Balen and Dolores. They executed contracts of work and are beneficiaries of Cong Yeng Guiao district funds instead of PDAF. Work programs were to be submitted by the respective barangay captains in order to signify the start of the work.

One of the good-intentioned officials of government-owned and controlled corporations is Atty. Francis A. Dimaliwat, the general manager of Mabalacat City Water District. From a modest establishment a decade ago, he has parlayed the facility's resources into a large category. And now, the water facility is expanding via a structure, symmetrical to the present building costing some P24 million and is equipped with modern, state-of-the-art amenities and an elevator. It has access from the present building through stairs at the front and rear of the two structures. Truly, it is a remarkable transformation from the time of tatang Joe Domingo, ertswhile GM of the water district.

Morales, who was cited by RD Isabelita Borres as very instrumental in the construction of the structure. It was the city government which donated the land on which the new building is now erected. Board members Cris Garbo and
