NAVAL, Biliran -- Being a lady chief executive is not a hindrance for having her town almost drug-free as its 16 barangays out of the total 17 barangays are already declared drug-free.
Caibiran Mayor Naricres Go, who is just five months as Caibiran mayor after she assumed the position after the suspension of Mayor Eulalio Maderazo, reported the accomplishment during a visit in her office at the town hall on Tuesday, February 21.
The lady mayor is just 5 months on the job as she assumed the position after the suspension of Mayor Eulalio Maderazo.
Go said that her relentless campaign against illegal drugs in her town, which is in line with President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s priority campaign nationwide, paid off as people involved in illegal drugs either surrendered or stopped.
“We have Barangay Victory that is not yet cleared of illegal drugs,” Go said but she vowed to work hard to clear the barangay of illegal drugs and have it declared a drug-free barangay.
She also thanked the cooperation of her constituents plus the hardworking policemen of the town for the accomplishment her administration achieved in its campaign against illegal drugs in her brief stint as local chief executive of Caibiran.
The lady mayor also reported that she currently implemented on some notable infrastructure projects like the on-going construction of the new municipal covered court, the construction of the town hall’s façade, concrete paving of roads in the town market and embarking on upcoming infra projects like the construction of a boulevard and the installation of floor tiles at the old municipal gymnasium.
“Im also focusing on how to make the town economically robust,” Go added as she noted the rising unemployment of the people in Caibiran due to the absence of economic activities which may create job opportunities.
She also shared that Caibiran town will celebrate its 100 years as a town this year, where she plans to conduct a 100-day countdown starting on April 16 to on July 25, the feast day of the town.
“I will hold a daily activity starting on April 16 for people to take notice of the celebration,” she further said thus attracting more people to visit Caibiran town which would eventually make the town economically attractive.
She admitted that she will make the best in her brief stint as Caibiran local chief executive as her leadership is numbered as the suspended mayor is expected to return to post by May this year. (PIA)
