Mayor Edpam’s Eco-Green Synergy-A A +A
Saturday, August 30, 2014
"YES to ecology… yes to saving Mother Earth… yes to a dynamic Angeles Heritage Zone.
Today, you and I are partners in creativity, conservation and preservation of our priceless and valuable legacy from our forefathers/foremothers. We have tough times to face, together, we can move heaven and earth to achieve eco-green synergy.
Look around you. Our heritage church, museo and the Pamintuan and the other ancestral homes, verily, outlining the blue horizon with the creation of an Angeles Heritage District. Rising before us in all black/white and chiaroscuro in all splendid glory.
No more spaghetti wires blocking our Angeles City skyline… no more obtrusive signages. When there is political will, there is a way.
Yes to empowerment, education and eco-synergy.”
Thank you Mayor Ed Pamintuan for your words on dynamic eco-green strategy. We also salute your resourceful implementation in realizing this long-awaited eco- dream.
Kudos to your patient and persevering team of environmentally-focused women and men.
What a soulful Angeles City. I am proud to be a daughter of this great Angeles City.
Seeds of Cultural Education
My friends, you and I can spread the seeds of cultural education.
Inspiring the future generations, we also need to develop the audiences of tomorrow.
Our children must have access to a solid cultural education, bringing together the wide range of opportunities available in the heritage, arts, plays, "serenata" and museum events.
It is my hope that we will all engage in supporting cultural education and passing on the golden values of our Kapampangan culture.
We can aim to do these sustainable practices:
• Securing core funding for the arts
• Enlivening philanthropy
• By reaching out to artists and creative organizations and encouraging them in sharing their expertise
• Supporting high quality cultural education in schools
In sum, I look forward to a golden "aslagan" (sunrise) where our minds, hearts and spirits will soar high in attaining "summum bonum" or the highest good.
