FIRST district Congresswoman Ma. Isabelle Climaco-Salazar, who was reelected for a second term in office, announced that education and health programs will be among her top priorities.
Salazar also vowed to pursue other equally important projects intended to help alleviate the plight of the marginalized sector in Zamboanga City's west coast, specifically the women, out-of-school youths, urban poor and other underprivileged groups.
Salazar's district covers 37 of the 98 villages located west of Zamboanga City.
Salazar, during her first term as congresswoman, satisfactorily done her task through the implementation of over P700 million worth of projects covering all aspects that include health, education, peace and order, agriculture, youth and women empowerment, livelihood training activities and other programs.
Salazar said she will continue with the pending works and will give importance to education and health programs.
Salazar's accomplishments account to a total of P766.795 million worth of projects from 2007-2009 that include various projects intended to help ameliorate the condition of the residents of the 37 barangays under her district.
Among the significant projects of Salazar is the distribution of the 37 units of L-300 vans to all the barangays in her district, the P691.63 worth of infrastructure projects, P11.8 million for health care, P4.2 million worth of scholarships offered, P1.4 million for social welfare services and 54 bills authored and co-authored at the House of Representatives.
