THE Association of Government Employees for a New Dynamic Angeles City (Agenda) showed their all-out support for the Angeles City Government's series of tree planting activities in the watershed.
This is part of Mayor Carmelo "Pogi" Lazatin Jr.'s aim to conduct massive reforestation in the Angeles City Watershed, overseen by his Chief Adviser IC Calaguas.
Lazatin together with Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel recently inspected the watershed to check on the 30 stewards and monitor the status and development of trees being planted there.
Flordeliza Santos, Agenda president, said the program to plant 45,000 more trees in the watershed is proof that Lazatin is taking care of all aspects of the life of Angeleños.
"Napakaganda po ng proyekto. Sa lahat ng aspeto po talaga ay inaalagaan ng ating butihing mayor ang syudad," Santos said. "Asahan po ninyo na kaisa po ninyo ang Agenda sa mga programang gayang nito."
(The project is very good. In all aspects, our good mayor really takes care of the city. Please expect that Agenda will support you in programs like this.)
The Agenda personnel conducted their tree-planting activity Friday, September 3, in the watershed with members of the City Social Welfare and Development Office, Angeles City Sports Office,and City Library.
"Ang tree-planting activity po na ito ay isang pagpapatunay na ang kanyang liderato ay pangkalahatan," Santos said.
(This tree-planting activity is a confirmation that his leadership is universal.)
According to her, despite the pandemic they are facing, the local chief executive still ensures that programs for the preservation of the nature and environment are being implemented.
"Sa kabila ng pandemya at iba pa niyang trabaho ay nagagawa pa nyang pagandahin at palawigin ang kalagayang pangkalikasan ng ating lungsod," Santos said.
(Despite the pandemic and his other works, he is still able to improve the environmental condition of our city.)
She cited Calaguas of City Environment and Natural Resources Office (Cenro) for supervising the series of tree-planting activities in the watershed, and City Hall employees for their participation.
"Sa ngalan po ng Agenda kami po ay nagpapasalamat kay Mayor Pogi Lazatin at sa bumubuo ng Cenro sa pagkakataon na kami po ay maging bahagi ng napakagandang proyekto na ito," Santos said.
(On behalf of Agenda, we are grateful to Mayor Lazatin and the constituents of Cenro for the opportunity to be part of this wonderful project.)
"Maraming salamat din po sa ating mga empleyado na lumahok at lalahok pa sa ating tree planting activity," she said.
(Many thanks also to our employees who participated and will continue to participate in our tree planting activity.)
On behalf of Agenda, Santos also encouraged her fellow citizens to join the event, saying this will make a great impact on the City's efforts to protect and maintain the environment for the Angeleños.
"Hinihikayat po ng Agenda ang inyong paglahok. Ang inyong oras at partisipasyon po ay malaking tulong sa pagpapaganda at pagpapabuti ng ating lungsod," she said.
(Agenda encourages your participation. Your time and participation will greatly help in the beautification and improvement of our city.)
To recall, Lazatin has asked government employees here to adopt a portion of the city's watershed to further its campaign for massive reforestation via a rotational basis through Memorandum Order No. 1114.
"Tayo dapat sa City Hall ang laging manguna sa mga programang inilulunsad natin. What we are doing is not simply initiating a tree planting or an accomplishment on paper, but a commitment and investment for the future of Angeles City and Angeleños," he added.
(We at City Hall must always take the lead in the programs we launch. What we are doing is not simply initiating a tree planting or an accomplishment on paper, but a commitment and investment for the future of Angeles City and Angeleños.)
The memo states that the move, including the adoption of the community garden program, will be included in the Individual and Division Performance Commitment and Review.
