ZAMBOANGA City Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar on Friday, September 20, led a fitting tribute for 41 employees celebrating their 25 years in the service of the city government.
“It’s every day that we get to celebrate life at a quarter of a century of service in the government. I am sure you have a lot of stories to share as you serve our people,” Salazar said, addressing the 41 employees during a fitting tribute at Patio Palmeras.
The event was organized by the City Human Resource Management Office in recognition of the outstanding contribution of local government employees to public service.
The mayor said joining the workforce of the city government has been very demanding.
“There were many who have aspired to serve in the city government but only few have been chosen and you were among the few given the opportunity to serve for the past 25 years and beyond,” she said.
“God willing, you continue to serve as you still have much energy and dedication to serve,” Salazar added as she thanked all of them for giving their best to the service of the city government 25 years and beyond. (Bong Garcia/SunStar Philippines)
