SECOND District Board Member Olga Frances David-Dizon formally ended her term as Provincial Councilors League (PCL)-Pampanga Chapter president, as she formally turned over to new PCL president Venancio Macapagal all pertinent documents, finances and properties of the chapter.

Dizon formally turned over the reins of the chapter during simple ceremonies held in the City of San Fernando and witnessed by Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Pampanga director Myrvi Fabia and other officers of the group.

Dizon said her term was able to provide a voice for the local legislators to the Provincial Government.

Dizon, who served for three years, was able to bring in scholarships, seminars and trainings, medical and financial assistance through local legislators.

"The gains of the PCL in the past three years will not be the same without the valuable support and commitment of these two great leaders, alongside the steadfast cooperation and participation of our other league officials and of our beloved councilors, in general," she said, as she also thanked Vice Governor Lilia Pineda and Governor Dennis Pineda for their support.

The PCL was able to extend financial assistance to local lawmakers, who were hospitalized, in varying amounts that reached a total of P226,000 to 16 beneficiaries, as well as burial assistance amounting to P20,000 each.

Under Dizon's term, she was able to provide scholarship slots to different college students in Pampanga. Through the recommendation of town councilors, Dizon was able to allocate 20 scholars per councilor. These scholars were given financial assistance to keep up with the expenses of their studies.

Her stint was also able to provide free Korean language training to some 120 beneficiaries in Sasmuan and Lubao towns. The trainees underwent a free 20-day Korean language training.

Dizon also hosted two outreach programs to the Munting Tahanan nang Nazareth in Mabalacat City and at the Tent City in Porac town. David also facilitated seminars and training for local lawmakers to better improve their skills and know-how in local legislation.

Dizon said she wished the new PCL leadership would continue the legacy of service of the chapter and promised to help the league's endeavors in her own personal capacity.
