ANGELES CITY -- A businessman has lauded Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan for his accomplishments in the city as local chief executive for three consecutive terms.

Rene Romero, president of the Romac Group of Companies and vice chair of the Pampanga Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc., said that Angeles City in general has improved under Pamintuan’s leadership.

Romero cited some of the mayor’s programs on health, education, peace and order, environmental protection, infrastructure development and others.

President Rodrigo Duterte recently appointed Pamintuan as chairman of the Regional Development Council in Central Luzon.
